Menus

As noted on the previous page the D200's menus have a similar layout to the D2X but look considerably more sophisticated and 'modern' thanks to smooth high resolution fonts and new graphics. Navigation remains the same, the multi-way controller and Enter button. Another new feature is the 'shadow' left behind when you move from the current setting to a new one, it's a reminder of what the features current setting is.

Shooting / CSM menu banks

When working in the Shooting or CSM menus you are in actual fact changing the settings of a 'menu bank'. There are four banks for each of the Shooting and Custom function menus; A to D, each bank can be given a more meaningful label (example) and the currently selected bank letter is indicated on the top control panel for quick reference. This is very useful for quickly switching between a type of shot or situation.

Help pages

The D200 has the same help feature as the D2X, a setting with available help is indicated by a circular question mark icon (?) at the bottom left of the screen. Press and hold the protect button to display a context sensitive help page. The example on the left is the help page for the optimize image option, the example on the right is the help page for the battery info option.

Recent Settings

The recent settings menu is essentially a history of changes which have been carried out via the camera menus. You can access any of the last eight menu settings and re-apply them. This is useful if you regularly switch between two features (for example file name prefix or noise reduction setting).

Two of awesome creative machines that I still use. I'll never give them up. I haven't reached 20,000 shutter counts yet! had these babies since 2006.
