Finding the online version of the Nikon D200 manual is not as simple as you might think.
Latest update, 13-June-2006: The links below do not work anymore, unfortunately. Kindly refer to http://www.dpnotes.com/d200-manual for the latest link to download the English version.
The obvious way would be to look for www.nikon.com, but lo! there is a not-too-obvious link at the bottom of that website that says ‘Downloads’. Clicking on that gets you to http://www.nikon-image.com/eng/download.htm, but you’d then have to navigate to your region / country and bummer; the Nikon site for each country has a different look and feel — I gave up after 3 minutes trying to locate a download link on the Nikon Malaysia site.
Anyway, to cut a long story short — if you require a manual in English or any of the European languages, you’re in luck; Nikon-Euro.com is where it’s at — all 25.3MB of it if you want the English version (file name: D200-En_01.pdf).
Happy downloading and reading!
NB: If you know of a shortcut for the PDF guide in other languages, kindly leave a comment here — thanks!
