I have not heard alot about the Nikon D60. Can anyone tell me a little bit about your experince.
Well I just got it for my Birthday in Feb.. I just step up from a Fuji S3000. So I am not what to say except that the white balance is hard to work with in auto modes. I am told that it is alot like the D-40X except that it cleans the lens everytime you turn it on and off. I love the camera and look forward to learning how to use it in a more professional way. I am a beginner, so I don't know what else to tell you.
Thanks janet214 I have been using my D60 for awhile now and I really like it. I have been getting excellent Pics. I am a student at NYIP and using it for school and getting starting as a Pet Photographer it is great.
I have three Nikon DSLRs including a D-60. Yes, it's true, the D-60 (and D-40) seems to be left out in the dark, especially now that its "upgrade" is the D-3000. I've had my D-60 for a year, now, and it is a wonderful camera, especially for the price. It, like many DSLRs, has more features than I need. I use it professionally and never use the scene modes, although, this is not to discount them. I run it mostly in manual or aperture & shutter priority settings. The things for me about the D-60 are upgrades and add-on accessories. Nikon makes no LCD cover for it, so I have a Delkin flip up cover/shade which works beautifully. Nikon makes no battery grip for it, so I've attached the one by Digital Concepts, which also works very well. Even though I,m a small guy with small hands, I like a camera with more size and weight than the base D-60, a lay-over from years of handling film SLRs. I think Nikon has failed to cash in on thousands of dollars by not making these accessories for the DSLRs below the D-80. And, of course, fast f/2.8 lenses, Nikkor and Sigma, have greatly enhanced my D-60 experience. All in all, as long as you are willing to invest the time and practice it takes to make it through the learning curve required to master any of today's complex DSLRs, you can be greatly rewarded by the little D-60. After all, it is a Nikon.
I bought a D60 refurbished about 3 years ago and it has been a fantastic camera. It was my first DSLR, I knew absolutely nothing about digital photography and the D60 was the perfect starter camera for me to learn with. It takes incredible photos, never once have I had a problem of any kind and I decided to move up once I learned a little bit. I have since bought a D90 that I use as my primary camera but I keep the D60 for a back up in case I need one. It is a great camera and one would be happy if it were their primary or only camera and wasn't really interested in constantly upgrading like I have become. I now want a
D7000 or D7100 but can't afford it and I still have my trusty little D60. Usually, I carry both the D90 and D60 with me everywhere I go and use them both. When I get home and download the photos from the two cameras I am always amazed and happy with what the D60 shot.
