Nikon D60

 

The Nikon D60 is a worthwhile entry-level D-SLR with solid image quality, but it doesn't stand out from the crowd when it comes to features.

Excellent image quality. Easy-to-use on-screen menu system. Stop-motion movie mode. Automatic dust-cleaning system.

Very similar to the older Nikon D40x. Specs are below average when compared with the competition. Slow three-point autofocus. ; Watch the Nikon D60 Video Review!

Nikon D60 Digital SLR Camera

 

Inexpensive entry-level digital SLR camera offers advanced features and great image quality.

Good image quality with extra features ; Variety of advanced controls

Design feels cramped ; Some design aspects not intuitive

With the Nikon D60, you get a lot of functionality for your dollar. I would sacrifice a bit of its compact design for better ergonomics and layout, however

Brightest, sharpest LCD in category. Stop motion movies. Active D-Lighting-fixes shots during processing. In-camera RAW conversion. Fast start-up to shoot

Compact styling means the controls are a bit cramped for big hands. Only three-point autofocus system. Manual shooting a bit ungainly. Just three frames-per-second in continuous shooting mode

Updated 12/23/08: The Nikon D60 aims to hook point-and-shoot photography enthusiasts crossing over to the digital SLR dimension. The next step up from the Nikon D40x, this model adds advanced in-camera editing, including Nikon's D-Lighting technology...

This camera produces pleasing pictures, but it offers minimal improvements over the D40x for lots more cashola.

Nikon D60 review: Nikon D60

 

Nikon D60

Optically stabilized kit lens; convenient onscreen user interface; compatible with a wide variety of lenses and accessories.

Pricey for what it offers; lens-based image stabilization is less flexible than sensor-shift offered by some competitors.

Despite modest improvements in performance and a couple of new features, Nikon's D60 fails to impress and costs more than some competing models.

Nikon D60 Review

 

The D60 is the third incarnation of Nikon's compact, user-friendly entry-level SLR line that started back in 2006 with the D40 (which replaced the first Nikon 'starter' model, the D50). The original D40 was a hugely important camera for Nikon and can...

Good resolution and detail (especially at lower ISO settings) Good dynamic range (better than D40 and slightly better than D40X) Surprisingly good build quality, tight shut lines New Dust removal system and very useful manual focus rangefinder Very...

No lens motor in body means non-AF-S/AF-I lenses are manual focus only Disappointingly RAW+JPEG setting only records Basic quality JPEG's Default settings a little on the soft side at a pixel level High ISO performance good, but not as good as best in...

The D60 takes the successful formula established in the D40 / D40X and, well, if we're being honest, doesn't do a great deal with it at all - the leap from D40 to D40X was a lot greater than the step up from D40X to D60 (even if Nikon's naming...

Nikon D60 review

 

Nikon changed direction with the introduction of the D40 in 2006 and the D40x in 2007. The digital SLR camera was allowed to become compact and one should be able to carry it around just as easily as a compact camera. Of course there are limits from a...

The Nikon D60 in fact does not surprise us. It just comes down to Nikon having kept the successful concept of the D40 / D40x and where possible improved it or added the latest innovations. And that concept consists of a solid base proven by the...

Highly Recommended!

Nikon D60 Review

 

Announced less than a year after its predecessor, the new entry-level Nikon D60 DSLR camera is virtually identical to the D40x model that it replaces. The D60 has the same external design, 10.2 megapixel sensor, ISO range of 100 to 3200, 3 point...

Where the D40x was essentially a 10 megapixel version of the 6 megapixel D40, the new D60 is a very slightly improved version of the D40x. The D60 retains the same core competencies - 10 megapixels, 3 point AF, 3D Colour Matrix Metering II, 3fps burst...
