Transcend 4GB 120x Compact Flash Speed Test on Nikon D200

4 Reasons For

Good Brand

We calculated the average reviews for all Nikon digital cameras and also specifically for Nikon compact cameras and found that in both cases Nikon had good reviews.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is typical of many cameras of this age and type. CCD sensors produce high quality, low-noise images but consume a lot more power than CMOS sensors. CCD is the most common image sensor type used in digital cameras.

Chart Edit

Has One White Balance

The Nikon D200 has a greater number of white balance modes than most comparable spec digital cameras that were released around the same time as it. This Nikon digital camera has an Auto white balance, which is the most commonly found white balance found on comparable spec cameras that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Features Two Auto Focusing (AF) Modess

The number of auto focusing (AF) modes featured on the Nikon D200 is more than most similar spec cameras that have been available for more than two years. The most frequently featured auto focusing (AF) modes is Face detection, but this auto focusing (AF) modes is not featured on this digital camera. The auto focusing (AF) modess continuous auto focus and single auto focus are also featured on this Nikon camera.

12 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Flash

Most of the other digital cameras of a comparable age and spec to the D200 have a built-in flash, however the Nikon D200 does not have a built-in flash.

We compared this camera to all the other digital cameras with a built-in flash and we think the GE A1455[plb_1772760_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Quite Low Megapixel

The Nikon D200 has a fairly low megapixel (only 10.9 megapixels) compared to most of the other digital cameras of this age and type. The average megapixel of compact cameras that are a similar age to the D200 is 14MP, and the megapixels range from 0.3MP to 46MP.

Digital cameras with a higher megapixel that might also be worth considering include the Olympus XZ-10[plb_1873249_price] (12MP), or the Fujifilm X-Q1[plb_2452648_price] (12MP).

Does Not Have an Image Stabilizer

Most of the other compact cameras that have been available for around the same time as the D200 have an image stabilizer, however the Nikon D200 does not have an image stabilizer.

It is worth considering other digital cameras which also have an image stabilizer including the Fujifilm X10[plb_1150_price] which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Video Capability

Like most of the other cameras that came out more than two years ago, the Nikon D200 does not support video capability.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Full HD Video

The Nikon D200 does not support Full HD video. Most of the other digital cameras of this spec and age also do not support Full HD video.

There are a number of other cameras which also support Full HD video that you might also want to consider including the Fujifilm X10[plb_1150_price], or the Nikon Coolpix P330[plb_1724102_price] which also has a higher rating.

The smallest display diagonal of cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as the D200 is 1" and the largest is 4.8". The Nikon D200 has a quite small display diagonal (only 2.5 inches) compared to most of the other digital cameras that have been available for around the same time as the D200.

We compared this camera to all the other 2.5" screen cameras and we think because of it's better review score, the Nikon Coolpix P3[plb_2003_price], and the Samsung L210[plb_1426120_price] is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Nikon D200 does not support wi-Fi. Most of the other cameras that have been around for a comparable time to the D200 also do not support wi-Fi.

We think you might also be interested in alternative digital cameras which also support wi-Fi including the Galaxy Camera EK-GC110[pl_2083466_price], or the SAMSUNG WB150F[pl_1682907_price] both from Samsung which also has a higher rating.

Digital cameras which are 3D that might be worth looking at include the Panasonic DMC-TZ30[plb_1847857_price], or the Nikon Coolpix P330[plb_1724102_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a GPS (satellite)

The Nikon D200 does not have a GPS (satellite). Most of the other compact cameras that came out more than two years ago also do not have a GPS (satellite).

We compared all the other digital cameras which also have a GPS (satellite) to this digital camera and we think the Nikon Coolpix P330[plb_1724102_price], the Canon IXUS 140[plb_1561326_price], or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ41[plb_2149949_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
