Just check how quickly it sinks. It should sink very slowly.

I would guesstimate that 250g is ok, but not 100% optimum

I would assume that most of them should work.

I personally use the ULCS and they work nicley for quite some years now.

My humble opinion is that the main difference is in how you lock your Focus.

Manual Focus:             turning a Knob

"Back Button AF":        pre locking the Focus at some easy object

Then the real Focusing is done by moving slightly back and forth in both cases.

I have used it quite a bit over the last year.


The only false alarms I have gotten was while rinsing it in the Bathtub after diving.

When I by mistake have tapped up to warm water :-)


Apart from that it is working nicely.

I do not believe that you will feel the need for Manual Focus.

There are situations were a locked Focus is desirable. My

Definition of those are when you are moving into the direction of super macro.


An easy way to get around the issue is to use the "back button Focus". I am not sure if the D200 has it, but I would assume.

It is a method in which you deactive the Focus from the Trigger button and activate it on a button reachable from your right hand thumb.

Which button and how to changes from Camera to Camera. This way you can lock your Focus to the desired distance. Then you Focus by moving.
