Nikon D60 Digital SLR Highlights
Nikon Integrated Dust Reduction System Dust in front of your camera sensor can mean distracting spots on your pictures. Thats why Nikon does everything to ensure clear pictures, including minimizing the build-up and appearance of dust. Nikons exclusive Airflow Control System is one of the two main protections against dust. It leads air within the mirror box towards small ducts near the base, preventing internal dust from settling in front of the image sensor. The D60s second form of defense is the Imaging Sensor Cleaning function, which was originally built for the D300. Every time you turn the camera on or off, this function uses vibrations to steer dust away from the optical low-pass filter in front of the sensor (deactivation and manual activation are also possible). Nikon engineers have also dealt with dust and other tiny particles in many other ways to prevent such image degrading material from attaching to the filter or being seen by the sensor when you are taking pictures. With all these measures in place, you can concentrate on getting the shot while exploring the wide array of Nikkor interchangeable lenses that a Nikon digital SLR opens up to you.
Rich, Smooth Detail with Active D-Lighting Sometimes, even a perfectly exposed scene will not render an ideal photograph. With difficult lighting conditions, important details can be lost in the highlights and shadows. But with Nikons Active D-Lighting, the D60 can correct these exposure issues instantly and automatically, while you shoot. Simply set Active D-Lighting before you start shooting. Active D-Lighting is available when "Matrix" is selected for metering.
Eye Sensor The Eye Sensor activates every time you look through the viewfinder, turning off the information display on the LCD for comfortable shooting.
Compact, Light and Comfortable The D60 is compact, light and ready to go wherever life takes you. The D60s size is not the only factor to consider; its shape is ergonomically designed to fit in your hand naturally and comfortably. Nikons experienced engineers know that operating a camera shouldnt distract you. Thats why each button and texture on the cameras exterior has been carefully considered for the most efficient and fluid operation possible.
The D60s bright, clear optical viewfinder is also designed with the user in mind, its helpful indicators and intuitive icons helping you achieve ideal composition with the optimal settings.
Nikons Intelligent Built-in Flash -- Simply Brilliant Proper flash lighting used to require skill, time and patience. With the D60, however, flash photography is simple, instant and accurate. Thanks to Nikons cutting-edge i-TTL flash technology, all the complicated calculations happen automatically, giving you balanced flash illumination under almost any conditions, even difficult lighting situations such as backlit subjects. With Auto mode, you just point, shoot and let the camera do the rest. Its that simple.
Display Format Options The information display in the 2.5-inch LCD monitor lets you check essential camera information quickly and easily. Choose whatever display format fits your taste best: each of the Graphic and Classic formats have three color variations to suit your preferences, while Wallpaper uses one of your own pictures as the background. Graphic format uses visual displays to show shutter speed and aperture, as well as the mode dial every time you turn it to a new setting. The D60 even recognizes whether you are holding the camera horizontally or vertically, and then automatically displays camera information on the LCD monitor accordingly.
Intuitive Menu Navigation The D60 lets you alter settings and functions in many ways. For all the choices it offers, the menu is still amazingly simple and intuitive, with navigation made easy thanks to a carefully considered design. If you are ever unsure about a specific feature or function, simply press the O button for detailed information. Its like having an onboard instructor to answer your questions. The D60s convenient assist images help you select appropriate camera settings. These useful reference images help explain the effect that each function has on your photos -- very helpful for exploring new features and making the most of the camera.
Creative shooting is just a quick turn away With the D60, you will always be prepared to shoot a wide variety of subject matter. Just turn the mode dial to fit your shooting situation and beautiful results are yours instantly.
Quick responses, captured moments Amazing moments can pass by quickly, but the D60s fast 0.19-second startup, split-second shooting time lag and fast, accurate autofocus capture more of these moments with precision. The cameras high-speed continuous shooting also helps capture fast-moving action at up to 3 pictures per second for as many as 100 (JPEG) pictures.
A wide variety of in-camera Retouch Menus Even after a picture is taken, the D60 offers ways to explore your creativity further. With a wide range of options to choose from, the quick, simple and extensive Retouch Menu allows you to create a duplicate image with amazing photo effects, leaving the original picture intact. And its all done in-camera -- without the need for a computer.
The right touch -- Quick Retouch Sometimes you want to make sure that your picture has the best balance of contrast and saturation. For this, choose the Quick Retouch feature. It creates an automatically retouched copy that has been optimized for better-looking pictures.
Original animation -- Stop-motion Movie Want more fun out of digital photography? Try making a stop-motion movie from a series of consecutive pictures. Simply select the first and last frames from a sequence of shots. You can easily re-edit before saving it as a movie by changing the starting image or removing specific images. There are also several size and frame rates to choose from.
Expect much more from your pictures -- In-camera NEF (RAW) Processing Nikons NEF (RAW) format lets you enjoy an incredible amount of creative freedom and control over camera settings -- even after the actual shot is taken. If time is tight or you are unsure of which setting to use, its even possible to shoot first with NEF (RAW) and make adjustments later. Thats right: you can take pictures, and then change the image quality, image size, white balance or even exposure compensation. All operations are quick, simple and do not require a computer.
Explore further -- Filter Effects The D60s Filter Effects let you experiment with color and light. Each of the Red/Green/Blue Intensifier effects let you enhance the color of your choice. Try the Cross Screen feature to create starbursts radiating from scene highlights. For other options, use Color Balance to modify the entire image, or experiment with Skylight and Warm Filters.

Screen is large with an easy to use display. Body is compact - which can be good or bad depending on how big your hand is/comfort level.
The 18-55 VR lens that came with it is slightly useless. You don't need VR on a short range lens like that. I used to have the 18-55 non-VR lens with my D50 and that worked fine. That's not to say the 18-55 VR isn't good, it's just not necessary. I would rather have VR on my 55-200 lens.
Also, recommend the Nikon SpeedLight SB-400, bouncing flash off the wall will make a HUGE difference in your photos, I wished I learned about it earlier (not included).
Overall, comes with all the accessories and basic lens you need to get started. It's an excellent choice at an excellent price. Check back on Amazon.com often as I've seen their price (sold directly from Amazon.com) range from $589 - $629.
My main camera is now a Nikon D3S and before that a Nikon D2Xs. I also use a Mamiya 645 Pro TL and Zenza Bronica ETRS II medium format cameras for special situations. In the past, I've used a Canon EOS 850 and many other cameras. Nikon is my professional choice!
I bought my son-in-law a Nikon D60 since he's interested in photography. I put it through its paces, and confirmed this is an excellent camera that can handle demanding jobs. The high ISO with low (no) noise is very nice, allowing some great hand held shots with either deep depth of field or relatively high shutter speed. I like so many of the features of this camera. This camera is small and light, but packs a lot of nice features. Recommended for those serious about getting into photography.
If you are new to digital SLRs, the menu system can be quite intimidating. Don't let that influence your decision as you will get used to it. You can take pictures immediately using the auto mode and worry about the menus later.
Important note: You need a memory card to do anything. No memory card, no picture (it does take the picture, but nothing is saved). Memory cards are cheap. I got a Kingston 4 GB SDHC Class 6 card for $14.95 (Class 6 is the best).
The camera comes with a US warranty.
As for long lenses, I got a Sigma 70 - 300 mm tele-macro instead of the 55 mm - 200 mm Nikon lens. There's no autofocus or VR, but it's not important to me. What's important is getting the extra 300 mm with a macro capability and good quality optics. You can fill the frame with a spider at 2 feet with this lens.
