Bought this as my second camera but as a first semi-professional SLR back in 2007/08 when I was 18. Still am using until now in university as a photography major and I still am finding how amazing this little guy is despite the lack of settings the D60 would have compared to a D90 and its newer siblings. It provides amazing color, crisp images (with patience and sometimes with a the aid of a stable hand or tripod) and teaches me new things and new perspectives wherever I go. I love shooting ...

To this date, I could say my D60 can still kick it and produce nice shots against recent entry levels like d3100, d5000 and d5100 of nikon and canon 500d and 550d. the thing is you'll not appreciate your shots when viewing with the D60 LCD but when transferred to a computer and viewed on a monitor, you'll see that's it's still close par to the new entry DSLRs. if you'll just add a AF-S 50mm to this old timer and bang! others won't notice that you're using a camera released in 2008. besides ...

I borrowed one of these for three years from my high school, it provided an excellent base and got me well acquainted with the DSLR world. I would recommend this for any first time photographer looking for a beginner's camera at a cheap price. Problems: The tiny tiniest of buffers, only around 8 shots in JPG.

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. Problems: None found, bearing in mind, who the camera is aimed at and the price level it is at.

Bought one of the last ones around, £330. With a case, a card and a 55-200mm lens around £550. Excellent value for money. Image quality very good everywhere but especially indoors where handheld low light photos are great. Certainly way better than Ricoh R4. Problems: None

Great little camera. Good for beginners, perfect little trip and backup body for advanced shooters, too. Would have given it 5 stars in IQ two years ago, with D5000 and D90 sensor it's 4 stars. Note regarding another user report: marxhome, if you are too stupid to even explain your concerns, better stay off the keyboard. Posts like yours are a shame. If one star in every category is what you value this camera, the problem is not the camera, it's your incompetence. Problems: AF points tend to ...

If you're looking for a quality DSLR which offers great lenses, ease of use and portability the D60 is hard to beat. Like all DSLR's, the user manual is very technical. You're far better off getting something like the D60 Field Guide for $20 at Chapters. The 18-55MM kit lens is pretty good but since investing in the camera I've purchased 2 additional lenses to suit my evolving needs. I stick with Nikkor lenses, they're worth the extra $ and less hassle. Battery life is ~250 shots in mixed use ...

The Nikon D60 is a great camera and takes great photos, Once you get use to using a DSLR camera it is very easy to use. The camera only has 3 Auto focus points which is a bit low for a DSLR. It has a great dust reduction system to keep your photos clean and "Spot" free. This is a great first DSLR camera for anyone wanting to move on from a "Point and shoot" camera. Problems: None
