I’ve always been a keen Photographer even as a child when I broke my dad’s Kodak Brownie because I used it too much. Instead of sweets like other kids, I was always asking for more film. One thing I haven’t changed since childhood and that’s always owning a camera and now I have a Nikon D60.
I did own a digital Kodak 290 plus which was cool. That Kodak which I’ve had for a while now is old. Anything you photograph has got to be less than 10 feet in front of the lens or its not recognisable.
I’ve recently bought a Digital SLR which comes with a comfortable grip and only weighs in at around 495g so the Nikon D60 is a definite improvement on all the other camera’s I’ve owned.
Maximum image quality and optimum performance are only two of this great little camera’s ability to capture photos with its 10.2 megapixel lens. With the DX Format, photographs can be enlarged without the loss of any image detail.
Looking through any lens you get spots of dirt on it, but the Nikon D60 has a new weapon against dirt spots and that’s what is known as the Image Sensor Cleaning Airflow system. No more dirt in the view finder to worry about.
With all this technology in the camera it can take pictures by itself. But as I have found out this doesn’t work as it should because travelling on a train and photographing a subject through the window can end up taking your own photo instead.
This auto focus and auto mode are fine as long as you remember what’s switched on when you take the picture. When you go to take a shot and the auto focus is on you could accidentally take your own picture because your reflection in the train window is nearest to the camera.
The Nikon was made to be slipped in and out of your pocket because its small and light and easy to handle. The reason the Nikon takes such extraordinary photos is down to the lenses it uses, which are the world famous AF-I and AF-S.
Getting stunning photos from the camera will only happen with Active D Lighting which retains those details in high lights and shadows. With the retouch menu there are 10 amazing graphic affects for you to choose from including ‘Stop Motion’ and ‘NEF’ (Raw).
One great little function on the Nikon D60 is that it shuts the display off just before you take a photograph thereby giving you less of a distraction as you look through the view finder. The Nikon D60 is the most advanced camera I’ve ever used, but I’m gradually getting used to all the gadget wizardry.
