Nikon today launched its 10.2 megapixel D200 digital SLR camera. The D200 promises an extremely satisfying shooting experience, with a
winning combination of quality, performance, construction and advanced system
features. Employing a newly developed 10.2 effective megapixel Nikon DX
Format CCD image sensor, the D200 captures images with remarkable resolution
Its sophisticated 1005-pixel 3D Color Matrix Metering II system
ensures ideal exposures while an advanced Nikon image processing engine
renders images with superb clarity and smooth color gradations. The D200
reacts with lightening speed, powering-up in a mere 0.15 seconds, and firing
in an imperceptible 50 millisecond shutter release lag time.
It can shoot
five frames per second with a drastically shortened viewfinder blackout time
of just 105 milliseconds between shots. Its large, bright viewfinder offers
0.94x magnification for comfortable and precise composition while a new 2.5
inch LCD screen provides ultra-wide 170 degrees viewing angle from all
directions. With an all new 11-area Autofocus system, robust control of
Nikon's i-TTL Creative Lighting System and advanced Wi-Fi image-transmission
options, the D200 is a perfect fit for discriminating photographers and a
natural choice for wedding, event and action photographers.
The D200 will be available in late December 2005 for $1699.95.
