User Review

Footski, DP Review
15 October 2011
  • Excerpt: I was given this camera by my father after being away from photography for a number of years. Within minutes of handling it, my interest had been rekindled. Set it to Auto and fire away. Set it to Aperture priority to control depth of field and way you go. The camera really does cater for beginners, but at the same time allows you to learn and progress your photography to a high standard and level.

Decent camera, but 3 AF points is a major issue

  • Summary: I purchased a Nikon D60, and ended up returning to to the store for a D5000. ( Nikon D5000 12.3 MP DX Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR Lens and 2.7-inch Vari-angle LCD ) I used to use film SLRs extensively, but have been away from photography for some time and have been wanting a dSLR forever. Now is the perfect time.

Acceptable Camera, Lower Quality lenses

BigBill, PhotoAlley.com
1 June 2009
  • Summary: Nice and light camera, but with issues. Very slow and unreliable focus in low light, not even low, rather standard indoor, tendency to overexpose outdoors, hit and miss focus - when closely examined almost every image has some focus issues, fringing, to much hassles with changing lenses. Maybe OK as first DSLR camera, not even close to D300 which is purely EXCELLENT with 18-200 lens.

Good and Bad

  • Summary: I purchased the D60 the first week of December 08. The camera worked great for the first 2 weeks. Then all of a sudden when it was being used I had an error message..."push shutter again." I was unable to fix the problem.[...

Nikon D60

  • Summary: I liked both the Nikon D60 and the Canon XSi. I researched both and had a chance to take pics with them. I bought the Nikon, but I am not happy with it. It's a great camera, but in my opinion the Canon xsi comes out on top with a better picture. They are both good cameras. So it's just a matter of preference, however, I would not recommend this to a friend.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Quality Construction

There is a spot in all pictures

Overstock
2 December 2008
  • Summary: I bought it on Oct. 2008, and I did not used it a lot. Recently I find that in all the pictures I took by it, there is a spot in the upper part. And I checked the first picture I took by it, and found that it is from the first photo there is already the spot.It is really a pity. I bought this camera for nearly $700. But it is even not as good as a $100 simple camera.

Tries to cover too much...

Doug, Amazon
18 October 2008
  • Summary: This is an OK book, but not as focused as I was hoping. In addition to covering operation of the D60, it covers several topics more broadly related to digital photography including exposure, lighting, and more -- he could have written all this stuff for ANY camera... why waste chapters in a book about the D60???

Alternative to manual

PRM "Picture perfect", Amazon
26 August 2008
  • Summary: I recently bought the new Nikon D60 prior to travelling overseas. I lost the new manual during this travel. This book is better than the manual since it is written by a user who understands what is important and how to set up for those difficult shots you miss when travelling. Simple to read and good with the basics and also for those who want those special pictures.

D40 replacement - NOT upgrade

Doctor C, Amazon
18 August 2008
  • Summary: If you are torn between the D40 and the D60, pick the D40. It has 95% of the functionality of the D60 and it's much cheaper. Both cameras share the biggest limitation of not having an Auto Focus motor and only 3 focus points so you're likely to outgrow both at the same time. At least with the D40, you'll have a much lower investment while you learn about photography.

Not bad... Not good either

D. Huang, Amazon
22 July 2008
  • Summary: I bought this book 3 months after I bought the D60. From the table of contents. I thought that the book will have examples of what happens to an image if a particular setting was set in a particular way. Well, that didn't happen. Yes, the explanation for each setting is clearer than the manual, but any lay person could figure them out by taking test shots. The parts about photography tips in general can be found on the net if one does a little web surfing.
