11 Reasons why Nikon D200 is better

than the average

1.Clearly larger sensor
23.6 x 15.8mmvs 14.6 x 10.8mm (the average)
vs 81.2 x 25.4mm (best: Polaroid Snap)
The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.More battery power
1500mAhvs 1212mAh (the average)
vs 4360mAh (best: Samsung Galaxy NX Mirrorless)
3.Has a built-in focus motor
Yesvs No (86% don't have it)
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.
4.Has GPS
Yesvs No (85% don't have it)
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.
5.Faster photo autofocus due to a phase detection autofocus when shooting pictures
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
A phase detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus and allows sharper images.
6.Weather sealed
Yesvs No (83% don't have it)
Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.
7.Is a system camera
Yesvs No (58% don't have it)
A system camera has lots of changeable parts such as lenses, flashes and other accessories. They offer greater flexibility than compact cameras.
8.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.
9.Can be controlled remotely
Yesvs No (57% don't have it)
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
10.Has manual shutter speed
Yesvs No (56% don't have it)
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
11.Explicitly less startup delay
0.2svs 34.8s (the average)
