We don't usually include the quidco cashback in the price shown here, as it is not guaranteed.... so I have updated the above post :)
#2
Nikon have just released a replacement for this model, "D300" - higher spec/higher price. Poss more good deals on the D200 in the near future.
#3
I'm sure there will be more deals but £688 is a good price compared to £1299 for a D300, especially as they're likely to be on back order into the new year. If low light photography is your thing maybe wait for the D300, otherwise the D200 is an excellent camera.
#4
Even with the D300 waiting in the wings, the D200 is still an excellent camera. That said, I wouldn't buy one at the moment as Nikon are bound to drop the retail price of the D200 to make way for the D300 which will inevitably mean that it will be available at even greater discounts than this. I suspect the D80 will drop in price too - watch this space!
#5
Some nice discounts with most of the DSLR range.
#6
Yeah the D300 looks to be a great piece of kit (the D200 is no slouch but [EMAIL="****"]****[/EMAIL] high ISO) - alternately if you can't wait til say jan/feb for availability, on the Canon side there's the brand-spanking new 40D (got mine yesterday) which is also a *cracking* camera. Lightning fast AF tracking, 3 inch LCD, 6.5 frames/second and 100 shot buffer. Whoooo-weee!
#7
I couple of pics of what the D200 can do.

Without wishing to turn this into photo gallery, just thought it worthwhile posting what you can get out of the D200 in low light conditions - this is an ISO 2000 shot:

Good glass and a steady hand go a long way.

Wow at such a high ISO it has much less noise then cheaper DSLR's

I see that's the old Nurburgring from early last week :thumbsup:
#11
If you think that's low noise you should check out a 30D or 5D shot - much cleaner still. But the new Nikon D3 (uber-pro model, huge & expensive) looks to be just as good too.

Nikon are about to bring out the D300 so the D200 price will fall big time so if you want the D200 it may be worth waiting for the price to drop even further.:thumbsup:
#13
Hi yinujim - to be accurate that image has been through the free version of noiseware - a really useful program; apart from that shooting in RAW helps alot with getting the correct white balance, exposure compensation etc.

From what I've read ISO 3200 on a D300 is supposed to look like ISO 800 on the D200 but as I'm happy with what the D200 can produce I can't see myself buying a new body in the immediate future - just faster glass.

To take Warrenp's point if I didn't have a camera at all the Canon 5D would have to be a serious contender - a mate uses it for weddings and has nothing but good things to say about the output from it. The Nikon D3 is just crazy money.
#14
Still lot of money for a camera, nice pics though. If you can afford to spend that sort of money on a camera then good for you. Obviously a good Camera though.
#15
with no lenses that will work out to be an expesive piece of kit.
#16
I can't recommend the D200 enough. If you have the money and you like high end kit then wait for the D300 but if you don't need the latest and greatest camera then the D200 will take some amazing shots.

I had a D70 and there isn't much difference in overall quality of shots but the D200 is just so much faster in how you can operate it, things like ISO settings being on the body instead of hidden in a menu. You'll miss less shots with it.

Of course the main cost with SLRs is buying quality lenses, but on the bright side at least when you upgrade you can reuse all those lenses.

I'll throw in my gallery:

Isn't the D80 almost the same camera but just in a lighter plastic body that is not as rugged and therefore less suited to professionals? For 99% of people the lighter body will be more suitable. And it's a lot cheaper.

With the 10% discount and the 5% discount you can get theis for £589. Then take off the 3.5% quidco and it's down to £568.

That includes the 18-135mm lens rather than just body only. I can't see why most people wouldn't want that deal.

Personally I think the D80 will come down in price before Christmas. It may also be replaced within the next six months because it wasn't too long after the D200 that it came out. Basically the D300 will be put in the D80's body and be called the D90. That will cost less than this D200.
#18
Can you let me know what this is based on?

I am really tempted at this price, its the camera Ive decided to get and even if the price drops due to the D300 I can't see it being much lower than this.

thanks Steve

o_t_e, thanks for the heads up about noiseware. never heard of it before but just d/loaded it and ran a couple of grainy photos through it. What a difference :thumbsup:

Love your photo btw. Loads of atmosphere there.

As for the D200, wanted one for ages but the cost of buying the lenses just killed it in the end. Got a Pany fz50 in the end. :)

how do you know? as i need a digital slr for my photography a level and thinking of getting the canon eos 400d supposed to be a good one for a beginner.

Ah you see... ;)

I did a nice deal on a 400D yesterday for a customer. 400D, 1GB CF Card, Lowepro slingshot bag (think thats the name) all for £470.

thats still a lot, i dont really care about the accessories for me its the camera and the kit.
#23
just want to ask how much discount do currys staff members get?

Well IRC the camera is normally about £470 on dixons.co.uk, so if you consider that has a case and a card, for about the same cost - it's a bargain.

You need a CF card obviolsy for it to work, granted, they are a tad pricey in Currys, but in general, £471 for a camera, card and a decent bag is a good deal.

In general, if you buy a SLR and memory card, any sales assistant should be willing to throw in a bag or something of similar value.

I paid a lot more than that just for my DSLR two years ago.

And FYI, staff discount is 10%.

ohh, because at the moment its for £459.99 at jessops and there is a 10% discount code aswell making it £413.99, i can get the case and memory card for about £30 max.

I am waiting for the D300 or if I can convince my self... the D3.

Canons have a habit of breaking if you look at them the wrong way.

Don't they teach proper photography these days? :(
#28
so what one do you recommend for a beginner?
#29
D40 or D40x or 400D or 350D or E-510

whats the cheapest lol.

You should be able to pick up a 350D for next to nothing if you shop around.

The D40 is an amazing camera as well.
#32
I use a couple of D2's, the h and the x. I can't justify the D3 price but fancy either the D200 or the 300 as a camera to keep in the glovebox.

A friend has the 200 and has raved about it for months.

This price is excellent and they will continue to fall as Nikon push the new edition.

Research? Nothing annoys me more than someone who can't be bothered to DIY.
The cheapest so far is either the 350D or D40 or E-500.

actually i did do research i just wanted to confirm, the thing which annoys me is people like you who jump to conclusions.
#36
Use YAW499 on this particular deal to make the saving a nice round £40. Okay so it's only another 2 quid, but it all adds up

£20 off when you spend over £299 Just enter the code YAW299 at the basket £30 off when you spend over £399 Just enter the code YAW399 at the basket £40 off when you spend over £499 Just enter the code YAW499 at the basket £80 off when you spend over £999 Just enter the code YAW999 at the basket

You wanted to confirm? You didn't fully explained that you researched on which DSLR is cheapest. Yes I jumped to conclusions because you didn't give enough information.

Did you ever consider the Pentax K110d?

Wouldn't recommend the D40/D40x for someone who's interested in photography and wanting to learn more as I think some of the features stripped out will be missed, particularly bracketting.

I disagree, I paid £320 for my D40x and produces better images than my D2h, D1 and the same as my D200 which cost me £1200. The only bad thing is its 3 frames a second and they don't produce a vertical grip yet! although there are some aftermarket ones on ebay for £31.
As for learning you don't need bracketing as you should be using Manual anyway.
I decided to use my D40x over my D2h at the weekend as I needed to use 1600 iso which produced great results

If you can take three identically framed shots while changing the exposure each time, then you don't need bracketting...for us mere mortals I doubt most people could do that. I'm thinking about increasing the dynamic range here rather than trying to get the exposure right, plus I don't think a beginner with this type of camera is going to be shooting manual straight away. Additionally, I believe the D40 lacks all type of bracketting, it's not just missing exposure bracketting.

When rival cameras don't have features stripped out and are offering stronger feature sets on top of that I think it makes the case for the D40 weaker still however it's up to the individual.
