Nikon D200 images not sharp

\015 I'm using a Nikon D200 with 17-55mm f2.8lens and the result I am getting is very poor. images are not sharp. They seem to be slightly out of focus and even certain parts of the photograph are less sharp than others. I've tried using another lens and the result is the same, so i'm guessing its not the lens. I've just cleaned the sensor with sensor swabs and eclipse lens cleaner. The results improved but still not 100%. Can anyone help???\015

Answers :

Your camera settings may be off. The D200 is very flexible when it comes to personalizing your settings, but they can be hard to navigate.
\015\012Try resetting using the built in reset feature. This will not affect your personal settings but may clear any unwanted changes. To do this, find the "QUAL and +/- " buttons on the top of the camera. Hold them both down for a few seconds. The top LCD blinks then the camera is reset.
\015\012This resets things like resolution, White balance and ISO settings.
\015\012
\015\012Next, try setting your metering matrix to the middle position. Not the top and certainly not the bottom postion. This switch is located on the right side of the view finder.
\015\012
\015\012If your lens has a "M/A - M", use the M/A setting.
\015\012
\015\012There are three settings for focus. C, S, and M, located on the front of the camera next to the lens. Set your camera focus to "S". This will set it up for still subjects and prevent the sensors from tracking things that move. Also set on the AF area mode switch on the back of the D200.
\015\012
\015\012Try these settings. If your images are still out of focus, you may have other issues that may require servicing by an authorized Nikon facility.

Tokina AT-X PRO 28-80mm 1:2.8 lens has recently developed a problem when mounted on my Nikon D200. The images are way too dark and my only way to obtain usable images is to bracket heavily. This lens has worked flawlessly on film Nikons and, until recently, worked flawlessly on the D200. I am now also having AF problems with the lens. When I attach any of my Nikon brand lenses - no problems. Can you help? I really love this lens.


I have this lens also but with a canon mount and loved it to death when i had film. I started to use it on the digital and like your experience it worked well for a while then started to produce faulty registered photos.. too dark and some too light. ... Digital Cameras

I got a Nikon D5000 and 18-55mm lens. When I take pictures using focal between 18-24 mm the deep of field is not sharp especially for landscape pictures. I made at list 200 pictures (the same image) test and the conclusion was: between 18-24mm focal the far field is not clear but what it is close to lens is sharp. The sharpness is coming when I change the focal to 35-55mm. I got a Nikon 24-70mm lens only for test purpose and the same. My test was on different modes that means P, S, A, M, and Aut

We use a Nikon D200 to do child portraiture in preschools and day care centers. Our original camera started turning some images blue a couple weeks ago then quit working altogether.

The focal length on my Nikon S52 Coolpix seems to be much shorter than it was originally. No matter the adjustment I make to the settings, at least part of the photo is extremely blurry. I have tried both with Auto-Focus on and off, but there is always a small square in the center of the view finder, and this is only region that shows a focused image. The camera used to produce sharp images throughout the picture. How can I adjust this?


This ccan be an error in the lens settings that have changed the alignment or a possible shift of the lens before the CCD imager.\012This canot be retified wxternally asn I advice that you get help from Nikon, specially if under warranty for a ... Nikon COOLPIX S52 Digital Camera

I have a nikon d200. The last time I used it (only a few days ago) it was fine, everything normal. Then yesterday I pull out out of the case and everything seems to be going wrong. It is metering INSANELY low, like a shutter speed of 100 in full daylight produces a REALLY dark image. It won't auto focus at all, and i am unable to change the fstop in manual or aperture priority modes. I tried to restore it to factory settings and the lcd screen flashed to indicate it had been restored but no luck
