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...
Excerpt: Même s'il n'est pas "haut de gamme", le F60 est un très bon reflex pas cher et loin des appareils "presse bouton" tout auto. Avec son "vrai viseur", il permet de "travailler" la mise au point et de tirer d'excellentes photos, que se soit en mode "Auto" ou en modes "Programme" ou "Manuel".
Summary: Ho girato tanto per l'album di matrimonio e tutti i fotografi mi sparavano delle cifre pazzesche... Un bel giorno mi sono stancata, sono andata si in un centro fotografico, ma non per l'album , ma per prendere un macchina fotografica, la NIKON F60..
