Nikon D60 Review by DPReview.com

Nikon D60 DSLR Camera

Simon Joinson of DPReview.com writes, “Everything we said about the D40X remains true for the D60; great output that’s easy to achieve even for a total novice, thanks to an excellent exposure and metering system; fast, responsive operation; excellent ergonomics and an easy to master feature set that is just sophisticated enough to allow users to explore the more advanced aspects of photographic technique without being so over complex they can’t be bothered.

“In reality the biggest challenge the D60 faces is the competition; there’s been an explosion of small, affordable entry-level SLRs in the 18 month or so since the D40 first appeared, and though I’ve never actually used live view outside the studio there’s no denying it’s a strong selling point at this end of the market, as is in-body stabilization. Cameras such as the Olympus E-410 (and its promising successor the E-420) offer a fuller feature set in an equally small (and affordable) body, and you can’t ignore the imminent arrival on the shelves of Canon’s seriously beefed-up (though pricier) forthcoming new entry-level model, the EOS 450D, not to mention the new Sonys or the Pentax K200D.

“But let’s not forget what the D60 has to offer; it’s still one of the most affordable cameras in its class and it represents the perfect ‘upgrade’ camera for anyone who has outgrown their digital compact camera and is looking to dip a first toe in the world of the digital SLR.”

DPReview.com gives the Nikon D60 a Highly Recommended rating.
