NikonNikon D60 digital SLR camera review : Nikon changed direction with the introduction of the D40 in 2006 and the D40x in 2007. The digital SLR camera was allowed to become compact and one should be able to carry it around just as easily as a compact camera. Of course there are limits from a technical point of view as to how compact a DSLR can get, but it's definitely a great achievement to develop a compact digital SLR camera and keep it easy to handle at the same time. Nikon is continuing the concept of the D40 / D40x with the introduction of the Nikon D60.

Nikon D60 dSLR - Successful concept
Nikon kept the successful concept of the D40 / D40x and improved it or added the latest innovations where possible. The concept consists of a solid base proven by the popularity of the aforementioned models. Whether Nikon will be as successful with the D60 as with the other models will not depend on the quality, for the quality is excellent.

Nikon D60 D-SLR - EXPEED image processor
The resolution of the Nikon D60 remained the same; with 10.2 Megapixels the camera sticks to the 'standard' resolution for entry-level digital SLR camera models. The Nikon D60 uses the technology that has also been applied in the warmly welcomed D300. The EXPEED image processor inside the Nikon D60 ensures achieving the highest possible image quality as an end result. The auto focus unit is Nikon's Multi-CAM 530 AF sensor module with TTL phase detection and a 3 point AF system.

Nikon D60 SLR - Anti-dust system & Eye sensor
A very important new feature for Nikon's entry-level model is the integration of an anti-dust system. Such a system is always the first thing on a photographer's wish-list while it prevents disappointments and a lot of editing afterwards. That's why I am very pleased with the so-called Airflow Control System since dust is an annoying phenomenon that every DSLR photographer has experienced in his photography career. An additional novelty is the eye-sensor deactivating the LCD monitor as soon as the optical viewfinder is used. The energy consumption of the Nikon D60 will certainly benefit from this feature.

Nikon D60 SLR review
I have had the possibility to test the new Nikon D60 in practice together with a Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 G VR lens. Beforehand I qualified the D60 as a successor to the Nikon D40x but officially there is no mentioning of it being a successor. We therefore will not say goodbye to the D40x but welcome a new Nikon family member; the Nikon D60. My findings can be read in the following Nikon D60 review.
