Nikon on Tuesday unveiled the
D200, a new digital SLR camera that features capabilities and technology inherited from Nikon’s D2X professional DSLR series. The 10.2-megapixel camera will be available in late December for US$1,699.95
Features include an 11-area auto focus system, five frame per second (FPS) continuous shooting capability for up to 37 JPEG or 22 NEF (RAW) images, 2.5-inch LCD viewfinder, magnesium alloy body, and EN-EL3e battery good for up to 1800 images per charge (a “fuel gauge” displays the battery’s remaining power and advises you when the battery needs to be replaced).
The camera’s image sensor features high-speed four-channel data output and a new optical low pass filter that reduces moiré and color fringing and shifting. The D200 also features a 1,005 pixel sensor to evaluate exposure settings.
The D200 supports DX Nikkor lenses and the AF Nikkor series as well.
The D200 features wireless networking using the optional WT-3 Wireless Transmitter, which is expected to debut next spring.
