D200 shutterlag tested in M-up mode and normal mode.
Jan 24, 2006

I just have measured the D200 nikon camera in M-up mode and camera set to manual mode. The shutter-lag is the same as normal mode and equal to 56 msec. If d5 menu is set to delay=on the time go to 460 msec. So no "super short shutter-lag" (into the range 2...6 msec) on this camera!

I've used a homemade module for this tests, resolution is 10 usec. A timer (000.00 msec) is started together with the shutter command and stopped by the x-sync flash signal. My hope for a very short delay in M-up mode as application for flying insects phothgraphy is not applicable. So I continue by the use of an homemaded external adapted fast shutter with a delay of 3 msec and a super short openingtime of 1 msec ( 1/1000 sec x-sync for the flash) The flash window is very short and controlled by my home made module to command the D200 shutter.
