Over the past year, Nikon has been striving to create more advanced professional cameras for the average photographer, and the D60 is one of the first in this line. The D60 is an easy to use camera for beginners, and an excellent companion for more advanced photographers. It has many features that the older and less advanced Nikon’s did not possess such as built-in sensor cleaning and filter effects. Although Nikon has recently been moving forward, it has kept some of its older features which have proved themselves timeless such as the Active D-Lighting, 3D Color Matrix Metering II, and the same 10.2 Megapixel CCD that was the pride of the old D40. The Nikon lens mount is typical of an advanced camera, yet the D60 lens mount is not as complicated as those found on other professional cameras. The D60 boasts many other impressive features such as auto and manual exposure, auto and manual focus, and both JPEG and NEF file formats. Ultimately, the NIkon D60 is the perfect camera if you’re looking to break into the world of professional photography.
