This camera is thirteen years old now in 2018 and is still okay to use for every day photoshoot.

The LCD screen has no live view.

ISO grain is very noticeable from ISO 400 and up.

The focus is slow compared to modern DSLR cameras.

This camera has beautiful Vivid colors.

Nikon D200 camera is estimated for 100.000 Shutter Actuations but I know one Nikon D200 camera that has gone over 700.000 shutter counts.
