LCD attachment on the Nikon D200

The LCD screen on the Nikon D200 is fixed to the body. This solid attachment means that the connection between camera body and rear screen is very sturdy and the LCD is less likely to be damaged, for example, during a camera tumble than a hinged design. On the other hand, the fixed screen design does not make it possible to articulate the LCD for better visibility during odd-angle shots.

In terms of size and resolution, the rear LCD of the Nikon D200 measures 2.5 inches and offers a resolution of 230,000 dots. The panel is not touch sensitive.

One convenient feature of the D200 is the presence of an on-board flash. While this built-in flash is not very powerful, it can at times be useful as a fill-in light to brighten deep shadow areas.
