So far design and ergonomics are concerned, the D60 has Nikon’s well-known feel and look. It may feel simpler to navigate for the new users as its small appearance makes it easy to tote and even easier than its big bros D300 and D80. The D60 possesses a 10-megapixel resolution, 2.5-inch luminous LCD and firm body construction. The Nikkor 18mm-to-55mm AF-S lens offers a reasonable 35mm focal length between 29mm to 88mm.


To make menus’ navigation easy and setting changes supple, it has nice four-way navigation pad right below the LCD screen. To go with the vertical and horizontal orientation there is a sensor which rotates the display. The camera can provide you a plenty of custom controls if once you get the ability for fast navigating to likable features and it’s not difficult at all to learn these manual easily.


A small body with too many features, this can be considered a boon as well as a hindrance in this Nikon D60. A user’s fingers may unintentionally obstruct the AF-assist lamp and may frequently bump the lens barrel. In the test we find the lacking of bracketing functions for white balance or exposure. This featured is not often used but it is expected from a $750 model.


It has a sturdy shooting-mode dial and highly readable icons but you have to steer through the menu system to find some wanted custom options.

Lack of Live View mode is one considerable and somewhat surprising slip in this D60 as many even entry-level digital SLRs are providing Live View now.


It is, indeed, quite similar to the less expensive D40, but still has some attractive new features like Active D-Lighting which helps to compensate exposure automatically in areas of highlights and shadows.
