    box of chocolates

    On Shutter-Priority, my D200 display things like 3" or 2.5" instead of any recognizable shutter speed.

    Welcome aboard. Enjoy the ride.
    We look forward to seeing more posts and samples of your work.

    Are you in very low light conditions with a low ISO? If so, your shutter speed may be displaying 3 or 2.5 seconds.

    Welcome! Sounds like you are set for a very slow shutter speed. Try turning the rear command dial.

    Those displays are indicating a three-second, and a two-and-a-half second exposure, respectively.

    First off, howdy and welcome to Nikonites!!!

    As @Needa mentioned, sounds like the last time this camera was used in shutter priority mode, the shutter was set for long exposure ... 2.5 to 3 seconds long. Easy enough to change, the rear command dial will adjust the shutter speed.

    I was confused by that too. Typically, the double quote denotes seconds of arc rather than seconds in time. Maybe that is common for other countries.
