About this item

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.
