Nikon D60 Digital SLR: Sample Images Test


Nikon D60 digital SLR with AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR lens


Jan 31st, 2008

We have had the opportunity to briefly test the Nikon D60 digital SLR with the new AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G Nikkor Vibration Reduction (VR) kit lens. We have published a few sample images taken with a Nikon D60 (Firmware A 1:00, B 1:00) under a range of ISO sensitivity settings and exploring some of the available options on the camera.

Featuring the identical overall body design to the Nikon D40x SLR, the controls and menus on the Nikon D60 SLR are equally well laid out and easily accessible making for user friendly operation.

In most situations the Nikon D60 can be left in automatic / default modes with confidence. Ideal for more novice users. For those that desire more creative control the Nikon D60 offers custom options for setting exposure, image processing and autofocus modes. The Nikon D60 Retouch Menu is also a handy feature that allows for some convenient quick edits in camera (same as the Nikon D40X and D80 digital SLR, although now includes option for in-camera NEF / RAW conversion and adjustments).

From our quick hands on with the Nikon D60, we have no doubt that this camera will deliver as promised and bring a whole new legion of fans. We are especially impressed with the AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lens that comes bundled with the Nikon D60 kit package, delivering excellent sharpness and colour detail overall for a lens in this price range. Check out the Nikon D60 SLR Test Shots below and see for yourself.
