nikon d200 vs d300
Posted 20 June 2008 - 01:28 PM
can't see a photography forum on here so i'm sticking this here!
i'm in the process of buying either one of these. and just wondered if anyone here have had any experience with both. if so is there any noticeable BIG differences?? i've used d200 a few times and just wondered if it'd be worth splashing out the extra bucks for the 300, or not.
thanks in advance

This gives you more colour depth and even more subtle changes in tone are visible. I find that the main difference when looking at an 8x10 from both cameras side by side is not the increases in resolution (because 2.3 MP isn't noticeable below a 11x17 print), it's the colour that stands out.
Yep, I forgot that. The chip is now CMOS instead of CCD which to my eye yields a much cleaner picture and the dynamic range is supposed to be better too!
PS: Tom, here is a quarter (at 100 percent) of a picture taken with my D300 @ 1600 ISO. That's without any kind of noise reduction or suppression because I like to do that in the raw converter.
That's the same with NR applied.
