4 Reasons For

Good Brand

Based on 19,122 expert and user reviews, Nikon has good ratings for its cameras. Nikon also has good ratings specifically for its compact camera digital cameras compared to other manufacturers.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most commonly found sensor type on cameras of a comparable age and spec to it. 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.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including because of it's better review score, the GE J1455[plb_1773004_price].

Has One White Balance Mode

Chart Edit

The most commonly featured auto focus is Face detection, but this auto focus is not featured on this Nikon digital camera. The auto focus continuous auto focus and single auto focus are also featured on this Nikon camera.

13 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Built-In Flash

The Nikon D200 does not have a built-in flash, unlike most of the other comparable spec cameras that were released more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in alternative digital cameras which also have a built-in flash including the Fujifilm FinePix X10[plb_1150_price].

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The Nikon D200 does not have an image stabiliser, unlike most of the other digital cameras of a similar age and type to the D200.

Other cameras which also have an image stabiliser that you might want to consider include the Fujifilm FinePix X10[plb_1150_price], the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS40[plb_1786919_price], or the GE A1455[plb_1772760_price] which also has a higher rating.

Quite Low Megapixel Count

The Nikon D200 has one of the lower megapixel counts (only 10.9 megapixels) amongst similar spec cameras of this age. The average megapixel count of similar spec digital cameras that are a comparable age to the D200 is 14MP.

Digital cameras with a higher megapixel count that might be worth considering include the Nikon Coolpix S570[plb_2049075_price] (12MP), or the Fujifilm XQ1[plb_1962901_price] (12MP) which is also higher rated.

Does Not Support Video Recording

Most of the other digital cameras of a comparable age and type to the D200 support video recording, however the Nikon D200 does not support video recording.

It is worth also looking at alternative cameras which also support video recording including the Fujifilm FinePix X10[plb_1150_price], or the Canon PowerShot SX260 HS[plb_1565812_price].

The smallest screen size of cameras that came out around the same time as the D200 is 1", the largest is 4.8", and the average screen size is 2.8". At only 2.5 inches, the Nikon D200 has a fairly small screen size compared to most of the other cameras of a comparable spec and age to the D200.

We compared all the other 2.5" screen cameras to this digital camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Nikon Coolpix P3[plb_2003_price], the Samsung L210[plb_1426120_price], and the Canon PowerShot A800[plb_1399055_price] is also worth considering.

If this camera screen size is too small for you then you might want to look at the Panasonic Lumix DMC-XS3[plb_2003627_price] (2.7"), or the Nikon Coolpix S3400[plb_2072942_price] (2.7") which also has a higher rating.

The Nikon D200 does not support WiFi connectivity, although it is worth noting that most of the other compact camera digital cameras that came out more than two years ago also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We compared all the other cameras which also support WiFi connectivity to this camera and we think the Canon IXUS 240 HS[plb_408112_price], or the Samsung Galaxy Camera EK-GC110[plb_2083466_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Nikon D200 does not have a GPS. Most of the other compact camera digital cameras that have been available for around the same time as the D200 also do not have a GPS.

We compared this camera to all the other digital cameras with a GPS and we think the Samsung Galaxy Camera 2[plb_2711451_price], the Canon IXUS 140[plb_1561326_price], or the Sony DSC-HX400V[plb_2297093_price] is also worth considering.
