Nikon D60 Overview

The D60 is a user-friendly entry-level DSLR launched in 2006 with the D40 (which replaced the first Nikon ‘starter' model, the D50). I owned one for several years and loved the excellent construction, relatively small dimensions and weight and of course the results. The D60 is easy to pack and fits in a small bag. 

The 10 megapixel D60 doesn't have a built-in focus drive motor which means it can auto focus only with lenses that have their own drive motor (AF-S and AF-I lenses). One of the D60's features that many photographers will like is an electronic rangefinder to help manual focus on non AF-S / AF-I lenses.

There are a few things that I liked about the D60. First, as I mentioned it is quite small and light compared to the camera I replaced it with the Nikon D7000 (but larger than my Olympus Pen-F that I now use). It was easy to turn on and off and was ready to shoot in what felt like a second or two. It also had a built-in flash, you do not great results of course but it is there if you needed it.
