ThinkCamera Reviews the Nikon D60 Entry Level DSLR

Nikon D60 DSLR Camera has a review just posted on the new Nikon D60 DSLR, where reviewer Mike Lowe examines the camera along with its 18-55mm VR kit lens.

On the positive side, Mike finds the D60 easy to use, and notes its good price, clever dust reduction, notable image noise improvements and its small and light build.

What he didn’t like were its plastic construction and the issues of shadow noise and its shortcomings on macro and low light focus.

But he concludes, “Those looking to make a first class entry level DSLR purchase need only know that the Nikon D60 is an excellent choice – it’s small, light, affordable, easy to use and has enough solid and fun features to get any enthusiast going. Although current Nikon D40x users will probably not feel the need to upgrade, taken on its own merit, Nikon D60 is up there with the best entry level DSLR, if not the best.”
