I found this while browsing Nikonians,Its an exel spreadsheet with suggestions for custom settings and shooting menus.I found it very helpful.It has got me used to navigating the D200`s menu system .
It may be of some help to new D200 owners

No problem, I`ve been playing around with the settings most of the day.If you want to take a quick snapshot , the point & shoot settings work really well.I also got good results with the action settings.

Messing with that spreadsheet for an hour is worth more than 10 hours of reading the manual.

That spreadsheet is pure gold.

I have programmed my cameras to their suggestions and have only changed a couple of things that tend to work better for me.

1) I don't save files as RAW+JPEG as my system has no real use for the JPEG and it just wastes card space.
2) I programmed the programmable function button to be spot metering.

Other than those two things, I have found the settings they suggest to be just about perfect.

Regards,
Terry

I agree with you there Terry, seeing the spreadsheet on the screen is much better than reading the manual,its more simplified than the manual.It saves me a great deal of time in shooting situations.I used the portraitcustom settingslast night ,I`m pleased with the results.The only thing I changed was the flash commander mode as I was using studio lights.
