SIZE AND WEIGHT IS GREAT! I have been using Nikon products for years the latest is my D60 although I have used a point and shoot Coolpix P90 and I have a S10 which I love! Will get the P100..... Interchangeable Lens are great but I find that I use the 55-200 just about everything. I get great Action shots with the kids playing Ice Hockey! I have great pictures and I intend to get another point and shoot to have as an extra. Getting the longer lens my only beef as the Lens are so expensive and never go on sale. It is easy to use zooming in and out. Easy to carry when traveling. I very seldom use the wide angle but will get the wide angle Zoom also in the near future. All in all I am a great fan of the Nikon Products! July 21, 2010
Great Camera This is the first dslr I have ever owed. This is the best camera I have ever owned. It is very simple to use right out of the box. I highly recommend it to those who want to upgrade from a point and shoot. That is what I did and let me tell you, it was the smartest thing I ever did! July 16, 2010
Lightweight Starter This was my first DSLR, and it has served me well for the 4 years I had it. It reminded me of a film SLR, no frills, just pictures. What it did though, was incredible. I have now moved on to a D7000, but the D60 is not leaving me. Consider buying one second-hand, as it is a great camera for its price and size. March 25, 2012
Minha Primeira DSLR! Tenho a Nikon D60 (minha primeira digital) e estou muito satisfeito. Cores fantásticas, foco automático rápido e preciso, bateria que duram muito. Já era fã das analógicas, agora das digitais Nikon. February 16, 2014
Si buscas comenzar, esto es lo tuyo Tengo cinco años con ella y si lo tuyo es obtener buenas fotos, poco peso y facilidad de uso, este equipo es muy bueno, no tengo quejas. November 13, 2013
Great Camera for beginners!! This camera is light weight and perfect for people just starting out in photography! Delivers great photos and has excellent options! November 15, 2013
Great Camera The Nikon D 60 has been a wonderful camera to own. Easy to operate.Great features. Came with a decent lens. Have used it for a year now and can tell you its well built. Have taken thousands of pictures with it and still going strong without any issues. September 1, 2011
Great camera for beginners I have had this camera for 2 years now and it has gone so many places with me. I have loved the quality of my photos and the easy use of the camera. However, I am now looking into up-grading to a better camera and I am realizing that I could have gotten a much better camera for about the same price. The biggest Con of this camera is that it only has 3 AF points. this means not all your pictures are as crisp and clear as you'd like them But if you are a beginning photographer I would definitely recommend it! June 30, 2011
A reliable camera which produces great pictures. I am a photography enthusiast. Most of my photographs are of people, animals and birds at the zoo. I bought D60 in 2008 and have used it as my primary camera since then. It has always delivered excellent results. A great camera for enthusiasts. With the passing of years, I have been eying the D90 and D7000 as potential options for upgrade.. because they can handle AF lenses. The D5100 is also a compelling upgrade as it offers better high ISO performance, Video capability and exposure bracketing. The D60 will however remain with me as the camera that that helped me learn digital photography. April 30, 2011
Overall, a super semi-pro camera I have owned a few digital slr cameras, and have to admit that I enjoy this one the most. Wish I could upgrade, just to see how thier more advanced models perform. Would tell all to look at this model for sure. I take a lot of car photos at some shows and all remark how nice the shots look. April 14, 2011
Class apart performance I was beginner level photographer when i started working with D60, i have learnt a lot with this Camera. D60 has proved performance even in the worst lights situations. For any beginner this is bset option. March 23, 2011
Outstanding Piece of Equipment This camera has been a trooper! It is an awesome starter camera and it did just that. I took this camera everywhere with me and it held up against snow, rain, and any other weird weather I encountered while shooting. I did have to get the lens fixed once because it wouldn't focus, but after that all was well. January 30, 2011
My first SLR and I am :-) The D60 is my first foray into the SLR world. Prior to this camera, I'd used Canon Power Shots. It took me a while to figure out how to use the camera, but with the manual and a couple of after market books, and Nikon's support desk, I realized the power of this nice little camera - especially when it's in manual mode. It takes great photos. It's easy to use, not too heavy, and small enough to fit in my small hands well. My only problem with the D60 is that it only shoots 3 frames per second and when I use the continuous shoot mode, it takes a while for the processor to get the data into the memory card. But, it might be time for an upgrade. But I'm hesitant to part with this great little gem. January 12, 2011
great purchase i purchased the nikon d60 because im just learning and i though it would be a good start. the d60 is everything and then some. takes great pictures, very easy to use and it has limitless potential once u learn how to use it manually. i gave it a 4 star but im sure its a five. i strongly recomment it December 28, 2010
Beautiful pictures you can count own This camera is so easy to use. Take pictures like a pro with true blues, and greens. Auto focus and perfect lightening. It doesn't get much better than this for the hobbiest. September 15, 2010
Great Camera This another great camera I bought from Nikon and I am proud to call it my second camera! The only issues I have with the D60 is that it does not take the pictures at a fast pace (which is what I need!) July 10, 2010
Easy but somewhat problamatic It is an easy and fun camera but has a major problem. The D60 takes great pictures but it taken to fast the camera gives an error screen and requires you to reset the camera. September 2, 2012
Love the pictures but... I have had my camera for 2 1/2 yrs love it when it works had it repair when it was under warranty but now a yr later having the same trouble the flash button don't work again can't afford to have it fixed ever year so I guest will put in camera case an store until.... but over all I did love the camera when it worked... February 27, 2011
Stopped functioning... This was my first SLR camera and my first leap into real photography. I was at first impressed by the D60. It's small body feels really good in your hands and feels very durable. It took great photos and had a very nice user interface. Unfortunately, after only one year of use and not more than 4000 photos, the SD card reader stopped functioning. I tried it with four different cards to no avail. As if this wasn't enough, the battery completely stopped receiving a charge despite the fact that I had only tried to charge it less than 15 times or so. This camera was a real lemon and I'd have to advise you to look elsewhere. Do an internet search and you'll see that others have met the same demise. July 6, 2011
Very disappointing camera Very disappointed with my Nikon D60. Camera stopped functioning at less than 18 months (purchased 2009). It’s sitting on a shelf now, while I decide what to do with it. May 18, 2011
sad i have fought with this one. i loved taking photos with my 35 mm nikon. i saved and got the nikon d60. havent been happy thought it was just me. i have not been able to get any good photos with the d60. i am going back to my film January 5, 2011

Answer: 
I have the opportunity to purchase one for $100 but here is what I found on the D60 "Supports the Nikon Creative Lighting System when using the SB-900, SB-800, SB-600, SB-400, SB-R200 or the Wireless Close-Up Speedlight system R1C1. Offers accurate exposures via i-TTL flash"
I am new to photography and don't want to spend money on something that won't work properly. I get frustrated enough. LOL

Answer: 
Nikon offers two types of autofocus digital camera bodies: those with a built-in focus drive motor and those which require a lens to have a motor. Cameras such as the D60 do not have a focus motor in it so they require the lens to have the focusing motor – an “AF-S” lens. While these bodies can use a lens with no focus motor (an “AF” lens) you would have to manually turn the focus ring to bring the subject in to sharp focus.

Answer: 
Yes it will fit as its a F mount, however, you will lose AF and, no doubt, metering depending on which lens it is. This is of course saying that you are using a D60, later bodies like the D90, 300, 3 etc will retain metering anf AF but again depends on which lens it is.
