Record review and playback display
You can choose for the D60 to display a review of the image taken immediately after shutter release. The type of display used will be the same as the last mode used in playback (histogram, thumbnail, details etc.). Note that record review has all of the functionality of playback mode, this means you can use the delete, magnify, protect buttons etc.
Press the Playback button to display the last image taken or the last image on the card. Use the four-way up or down (or turn the sub-command dial) to change display mode (seven available), press left or right (or turn the main command dial) to browse images.
|1: Folder, File name, Image size, Image quality||2: Detail - Camera, Metering mode, Shutter speed, Aperture, Exposure mode, Compensation, Focal length and Flash mode|
|3: Detail - Image Optimization, ISO sensitivity (red indicates Auto ISO was used), White Balance, Image size / quality, Tone, Sharpness, Color, Hue, Saturation and Comment||4: Detail - Active D-Lighting setting and Retouch options|
|5: Highlights - Note that the blinking areas aren't necessarily completely overexposed but are above a certain threshold||6: Histogram display - Image thumbnail, Luminance histogram|
|7: No information|
Delete and Protect
|Press the delete button to display the 'Delete?' prompt, press once more to delete the image||Press the protect button to protect (small key icon appears) or unprotect an image|
Press the magnify button to switch to magnification mode, simply use the multi-selector (4 way controller) to move around the image, press OK to return to full view. When magnified you can flick from one image to the next (at the same magnification level) using the control wheel, which is useful for checking fine focus.
|Press the zoom button for playback zoom mode, image is partially magnified and an overview navigation box is shown at the bottom right||As you zoom further the navigation box shows a representation of the current view|
|Maximum zoom is described as '25x' although doesn't appear to show any more detail than the step before||After approximately two seconds the navigation box disappears, change the zoom level or scroll around and it will re-appear|
Playback thumbnail views
The D60 has two levels of thumbnail view, either 2 x 2 or 3 x 3. Press the thumbnail index button to enter thumbnail mode with 4 images (2 x 2), press again to switch to the 9 image (3 x 3) view. If you leave the camera in this view mode it will use it for record review. Note that if you have the 'Rotate Tall' option enabled images taken in the portrait orientation are displayed vertically.
|2 x 2 thumbnail view||3 x 3 thumbnail view|
During playback you can display a pop-up version of the expanded Retouch menu by pressing the OK button, this is a faster method of applying any of the retouch adjustments to the current image. Full details of the Retouch features later in this article.
In-camera RAW conversion
One of the new tricks up the D60's sleeve is the ability to convert raw files in-camera; this isn't exactly rare on digital SLRs, but the implementation is nicely thought out and offers almost total control over the camera's settings, complete with a thumbnail preview of the changes as they are applied. It's also pretty fast, taking only a second or so to create the JPEG.
|Raw processing main screen||Image optimize presets|
|Exposure compensation||Custom optimization options|
|White balance presets||White balance fine-tuning|
Stop motion movies
Last but by no means least, the D60 can produce 'stop motion' movies (in AVI format) from a bunch of stills (up to 100 in one go), allowing budding animators to create their own version of 'Chicken Run' - we're pretty sure this is a first in a digital SLR.
|You can define the frame size and frame rate of the movie (3-15 frames per second).||Select the start and end frames (all frames between these two will be selected). You can edit to remove frames if you wish.|
|Movies can be previewed on-screen or saved.||The process takes a few seconds (depending on the number of frames).|
