Nikon D200 Digital SLR Camera is a consumer camera but with more additional features that most professional-level cameras have.

It can instantly power up in just 0.15 seconds, while its shutter release time lag takes only 50 milliseconds. Because of these features, Nikon D200 digital SLR camera makes it easier for you to shoot, especially with a moving subject.

It has a large and bright viewfinder with 95% frame coverage. It allows magnification at approximately 94x and has a mirror blackout time of only 105 milliseconds. This eye-level optical viewfinder, with 19.5 eyepoint, has a built-in diopter adjustment, which allows fine tuning.

Another feature the Nikon D200 offers is the new Multi-CAM 1000 autofocus sensor module. It features 11-area autofocus sensors that are arranged in a diamond pattern at the center of the picture area. It also has 7-wide area AF system that enables you to maintain focus on moving subject.

It has a 2.5-inch, 230,000-dot TFT rear LCD color monitor, which enables 170-degree viewing in all directions. With this high-resolution monitor, you can view images at up to 400% magnification. Its viewfinder coverage is about 95%. It also has grid lines, which you can turn on and off.

This camera uses a rechargeable EN-EL3e Lithium-Ion battery that enables it to shoot up to 1,800 frames per charge. It features a fuel gauge system that shows remaining charge percentage and the overall service life of the battery. It also displays the number of remaining shots since the last charge.

With this camera you do not have to use cable if you want to transfer images to a computer. All you need is a computer that is compatible with IEEE 802.11 b/g technology and an optional Wireless Transmitter WT-3a.
