The Nikon D60 SLR Digital Camera has been designed for the consumer who wants to combine top technology with user-friendliness and creative features. The D60 provides a resolution of 10.2 effective Megapixels, and incorporates Nikon's exclusive EXPEED image-processing concept, which is utilized to maximize image quality and processing speed - resulting in continuous shooting capability at 3.0 fps, near instant power-up at just 0.19 seconds and high ISO sensitivity, all in a compact, lightweight body with a user-friendly ergonomic design.
At only 495g, the D60 is compact, light and ready to go wherever life takes you. The D60's size is not the only factor to consider; its shape is ergonomically designed to fit in your hand naturally and comfortably. The D60's bright, clear optical viewfinder is also designed with the user in mind, its helpful indicators and intuitive icons helping you achieve ideal composition with the optimal settings.
The D60 is capable of use in a range of lighting conditions resulting from a wide sensitivity range of ISO 100 to ISO 1600 and offers vivid color reproduction with clear, sharp results. The camera's built-in Speedlight produces excellent balanced results thanks to Nikon's sophisticated i-TTL flash system, and also allows the use of additional remote-controlled Speedlights via a TTL Hot Shoe. For convenient use in places where flash photography is not allowed, the camera will set the sensitivity automatically for the best results.

This another great camera I bought from Nikon and I am proud to call it my second camera! The only issues I have with the D60 is that it does not take the pictures at a fast pace (which is what I need!)

This was my first SLR camera and my first leap into real photography. I was at first impressed by the D60. It's small body feels really good in your hands and feels very durable.

This was my first SLR camera and my first leap into real photography. I was at first impressed by the D60. It's small body feels really good in your hands and feels very durable. It took great photos and had a very nice user interface. Unfortunately, after only one year of use and not more than 4000 photos, the SD card reader stopped functioning. I tried it with four different cards to no avail. As if this wasn't enough, the battery completely stopped receiving a charge despite the fact that I had only tried to charge it less than 15 times or so. This camera was a real lemon and I'd have to advise you to look elsewhere. Do an internet search and you'll see that others have met the same demise.

With one exception, slow fps rate, it has always delivered. I recently took it out on a snowy night with the temperature around 12 degrees, and no problem with the electronics. Been using it for 10 years...no regrets.
I got my D60 May 2007, Until now it is still working and didn't let me down. I've been to many countries with this camera. And saw action in Events and Photo shoots. I really love my D60.
This camera is light weight and perfect for people just starting out in photography! Delivers great photos and has excellent options!
Outstanding SLR camera! This little camera has been with me all over North America, and has performed beautifully. VR technology is incredible, and most of my images (birds) can be enlarged enough that a big telephoto lens is not necessary. I am just now exploring B&W possibilities. Controls are intuitive, and anything that is not labelled clearly can be accessed through a very easy to access and understand set of menus. I had to consult the manual once (remote release) since I have had the camera.
I enjoy my camera for many uses. While I initially purchased it to be used for a class I was taking, I find myself taking it everywhere with me, like a glamorized comfort blanket. The pictures are clear and beautiful. It even came with a remote for taking long-exposure shots. The only thing missing is a camera carrying case, otherwise this purchase was inclusive and money well spent!
My husband bought me my first SLR digital camera "Nikon D60" for Christmas 2008. I am a travel consultant and have traveled the world with this wonderful camera. It has never let me down. People are forever commenting on how nice my photo's are. I've just returned from doing a 23 day coach holiday throughout Britain and Ireland, most of my photo's were taken through the window of the coach traveling at high speeds. I am impressed by how clear the photos are and I just love how instant it is to turn on, aim and click and out comes this amazing photo. The battery life also amazing me. I have taken hundreds of photo's without needing to re-charge the battery, unlike my fellow travelers with cheap digital cameras. The only downfall I have found with the camera is that it only has 3 focal points. I love macro photography and after owning 3 other digital cameras previous to owning the D60, the D60 is far more superior in quality and sharpness. I just love my D60 it's been such a great camera to use and I highly recommend it, even though you cannot buy them in shops now as new models have now been released. I am contemplating on upgrading mine at some stage and I will definitely be buying another Nikon.
It is an easy and fun camera but has a major problem. The D60 takes great pictures but it taken to fast the camera gives an error screen and requires you to reset the camera.
I've had it since 2009 and it delivers fantastic photos. Definitely recommend it.
Purchased this camera in April '09 and I am still in love with it. I did have a small issue with the light meter over exposing, but sent it in under warranty and it has worked flawlessly since. This was my first foray into digital and at first found all the functions daunting. I purchased a book on the D60 and also attended a Nikon class (came free with purchase). With some practice I have been taking some fantastic pictures. The nice thing about digital is you can take lots & lots of pictures and then just delete the ones that don't come out well. I have since bought some different lenses - tele and wide angle and with each one a new world opens up. I have traveled quite a bit with it and it hasn't let me down. Also get the remote shutter release so you can get in the picture too. :)
We bought this for my stepdaughter's graduation, she is showing an interest in photography and we want a great product that will give her the tools to take it to another level.
