Excerpt: The F60 is a reasonably capable (but fairly basic) entry-level SLR. Discontinued now, but can be bought very cheaply secondhand. The body has a very plasticky feel to it; the plastic is slightly textured, but it isn't covered with any grippy substance (eg. rubber) at all.
Excerpt: I bought a Nikon F60 as my first camera as my dad always had a Nikon and I wanted a quality camera too. It's robust, easy to hold and operate, takes great pictures, but I have one complaint. The focus button is also the button that you press to take the picture.
Excerpt: I owned a manual focus SLR with simple aperture priority or manual exposure and thought it was all I would ever need. Why do you need auto focus when you're looking through the lens anyway. I moved to the F60 only because I wanted a camera I could put in a housing and use underwater.
Pros: Robust and takes great pictures if used properly
Excerpt: as a former died in the wool, manual focus only, AF is for wimps sort of snapper I've always avoided this kind of photo-gear..but I have to admit that trying the F50 & F60 out last year was a treat only actually had it in my possession to teach someone the basic principles of photography as they...
Summary: Sammelswerte Nikon Kamera, einfache Bauart aber in der analogen Fotografie völlig ausreichend. Ob Profi oder Amateur, diese Kamera bietet alles was man braucht oder auch nicht braucht. Da ich analoge SLR`s sammle, gehört sie einfach dazu :-)
Summary: The Nikon F60 is a basic analogic body. It has lot of capabilities for its price on the second hand market. It is good for collection, but if you want an everyday use of a "film body", prefer a bigger body like an F90 or a F100 and if you have less money : F80 or F70.
Summary: Die Nikon F60 ist eine sehr gut bedienbare, analoge Spiegelreflexkamera. In den digitalen Fotozeiten ist analog fast in Vergessenheit geraten und eigentlich nicht mehr up-to-date. Dabei hat die analoge Fotographie durchaus ihre Vorteile und Reize.
