Hi Jack, glad you're liking the D200. If you have a light meter from back in the 70's that still works and that you can calibrate to you camera, you'll be doing yourself a stack of favours if you get it working, turn off your programme modes and start taking stuff the old fashioned way. Programme modes were the worst thing ever to be invented....priority modes are as far as I ever go, aperture or shutter as required, the rest I want in my control not the cameras.

I never use Programme Mode, always either manual, Aperture Priority or Shutter Priority: where possible I always take a light meter reading from a grey card or ambient with a meter, then always set a desired ISO and White Balance manually. If any shots come out dodgy then I can alter things to make them right, in Programme you're always at the mercy of the camera. I'm not a complete manual junky I will allow the camera to auto focus, which it can do faster than me, it's tracking modes which it can do better than me, but beyond that I still like to think I'm in control?

Yes, you'd think huh? I was using autofocus and matrix metering at the time. Yeah, you're right, the color of the runners clothing could make a difference. One of the things about taking action shots is using a fast shutter speed to freeze the subject in mid step. Some days are really bright,other days are overcast and the light is constently changing if there are rolling clouds so it's difficult to use the same set ISO for all the runners. So I think I will try Shutter Priority with the Auto Iso setting and see how that works. What do you think?

I purchased a D200 used along with the matching MB-D200 battery grip about a year ago. Still learning all it will do. I use it along with a 18 x 200 VR lens for action finish line shots during running races for "" . (Check out the site, it's pretty cool). Anyhow, I am usually able take great action photos as long as it is adjusted correctly. The last race I photographed I had a problem with some of the images being lighter or darker, then again most of the images were okay. I was using Program Mode. I was not using Auto ISO at the time. Do you think the problem was not having the camera set to Auto ISO?

Hello all. Nice to find that the D200 is still appreciated.

I upgraded to the D200 at the latter half of 2008 from a D70's. I liked the reviews it got, heard one landscape photographer say "it's the best digital camera I've ever used" and after handling one thought it was great. Sadly I didn't reckon on how much noise it produced in low light conditions, which is it's biggest let down. For some of the work I do I've ended up having to get a D3 which produces negligible noise at even ISO6400, but when I don't need the 'monster' I still like using the D200.
