Lines occuring in Nikon D200 images
A pattern of vertical lines may on rare occasions appear in images containing extreme contrast. This will only occur with a limited number of early-production D200 cameras, under normal shooting conditions this pattern will not occur in images.
The pattern will only become visible when the image is enlarged on the computer screen above 100%. The appearance of this pattern may vary depending on the sensitivity setting used, the pattern does not occur at an ISO setting of 100 ISO. Images printed at a print size of A3 (297 mm x 420 mm / 11 in x 14 in.) or smaller this pattern is almost undetectable, and therefore should have little impact on general photography and printing.
If you experienced this pattern occurring in your images, please contact your nearest Nikon service representative. Nikon will adjust the image output level so that the pattern of lines will become virtually undetectable.
