  • Conclusion: 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 convention might seem to imply the opposite).
  • Pros: 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 compact and lightweight yet still comfortable to use, New kit lens offers good optical performance and effective image stabilization, Great in-use performance, very responsive, short black-out time, very fast media writ...
  • Cons: 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 class, No exposure or white balance bracketing, No hard buttons (without customizing) for ISO or White Balance, No depth-of-field preview, Fixed exposure steps (1/3 EV), Disappointing automatic white balance performan...

  • Conclusion: Nikon D60 digital SLR camera 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 popularity of the aforementioned models. Whether Nikon will be as successful with the D60 as with the other models will not depend on the quality, for the quality is excellent.

  • Summary: Last August I requested to see this DSLR unit from Nikon and a series of miss communications means it finally arrived with me recently, was it worth the wait, it sure was! I always enjoy being stretched when I review a DSLR .

Nikon D60 review

PC Advisor
3 December 2008
  • Summary: The Nikon D60 is a great choice you don't need a high-end digital SLR but you're keen to trade up from a compact camera phone and capture more professional-looking photographs without starting a run on a bank.

Nikon D60 + AF-S DX 18-55 VR lens

PriceRunner
2 October 2008
  • Conclusion: Nikon has stripped down its serious cameras to create a usable, friendly budget camera. But its baby/bath water filtering process has been almost perfect – you get all the colour accuracy, detail capture and processing smarts (including a clever D-Lighting system that boosts shadow detail) of its more expensive brethren, but with none of their complexity.
  • Pros: Like Canon, Nikon has a heritage in creating top class cameras for photo professionals, and brings incredible image quality with a really affordable price. The 10.2-megapixel images from the D60 are bursting with life, colour and detail – and it’s fast, too, taking just a fraction of a second to start up. There’s a dust-cleaning sensor on board and the menus and dials are all very clear.
  • Cons: For anyone who likes to frame their shots at arm’s length (or over a crowd, for example) the lack of Live View LCD framing might be off-putting. It’s also missing some advanced features, such as exposure bracketing or a depth of field preview button.

Nikon D60

  • Summary: 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 mode - whilst adding a small number of new features that are nice-to-haves, rather than being essential.

  • Summary: An entry-level DSLR with many features to help novice users but also a good set of manual controls.Nikon is touting its D60 model as 'one of the smallest Nikon digital SLRs ever'. Released less than a year after the slightly lighter D40, it's identical in size and also the same size and weight as D40x that followed. It also has the same 10.2-megapixel CCD sensor and a very similar feature set to the D40x.
