Good camera in worthy hands!

My only criticism of the D200 is the MB-D200. The connection with the body is so flimsy that precise composition on a tripod is virtually impossible.

Harry,

I use a D200 with MB-D200, and I cemented a small strip of nylon webbing to the inside of the upper portion of my L- bracket so that it firmly contacts the rubber on the body housing just forward of the door that covers the video and DC-in terminals. This serves to stabilize the L bracket to the extent that there's no noticeable play when the camera is mounted on a tripod. The heaviest lens I use that doesn't have a tripod foot is the 17-55 which Nikon lists as 755 g.

I agree that the construction and and attachment mechanism of the MB-D200 are disappointing. If given the option, I would have paid more for a sturdier grip.

very impressive, did you use a tripod?
Yep, all of them on a tripod. The first one with manual focus.

I use the MB-D200. And I have to say that I did not have any problem with the connection. For the moment it is very firm.

Thanks for the tip!

One word, Fantastic, welcome to the world of Macro.
Well ... I'm in the world of macro since about 10 years now :wink:
But thanks anyway.

Jan,

As always, these are breathtaking!! I especially like number three and four. I have been using the MB-D200 for about a year now. I haven't had any issues with slippage on my tripod. I also recently purchased the Nikon handstrap which fits over the MB-D200. It attaches to the tripod mount, and makes vertical shots using the secondary shutter release very difficult. But, it the grip remains secure...so far.
 
Mmmmmm.....luscious!!!! Yep, the Macro King strikes again! These are gorgeous and you are showing already that the D200 is a wonderful tool in your hands. I love viewing your macros, as you manage to nail them so beautifully..... The D200 will give you that extra added bit of resolution and such that isn't there in the D70/D70s. Congratulations on your new camera! :smile:

As for the MB200 issue: I have the MB200 but haven't used it all that much on my D200, so when I was ordering the L bracket I decided not to get the one which is designed to work with the MB200. I may at some point change my mind but right now it's easy enough to use the MB200 under certain shooting situations and to leave it off under others. This requires removing the L bracket, though, and at some point I may just have to bite the bullet.....
