Nikon D60 DSLR is stunning
If you really want to make taking photographs a fun event rather than a chore with baggage like: is the shot alright, or I hope the pic is not screwed; then you need to consider the Nikon D60 DSLR. It shares a form factor similar to the D40. It boasts of 10.2-megapixel image processor, intuitive LCD information display, EXPEED image processing concept, new dual dust reduction countermeasures, AutoFocus, in-camera editing tools and exciting creative options. The D60 has a 0.18-second start-up time and split-second shutter response. It can shoot continuously at up to three pictures-per-second. The specs include VR (Vibration Reduction) image stabilization technology, 3-D Color Matrix Metering II, Active D-lighting function, In-camera Retouch Menu, Stop-Motion Movie mode, Red-eye correction, Image Trim, auto-orienting screen (horizontal or vertical) plus the ability to create stop-animation movie clips from a series of as many as 100 consecutive JPEG picture files. It also features a new power conserving Eye Sensor that turns the big 2.5-inch color LCD monitor on and off automatically when you alternate between taking pictures and reviewing camera settings.
Nikon D60 DSLR features Eye-Fi memory cards functionality, allowing the convenient wireless transfer of images from the D60 to a computer. Additionally, photos can be stored on SD cards, high-capacity SDHC cards and Eye-Fi memory cards. Compared to Canon’s latest EOS Rebel there are a couple of things lacking. EOS 450D XSi boasts of live view which is absent on the D60. The XSi also has a bigger screen, packs in more megapixels and shoots faster in continuous shooting. The D60 will be out early next month. Pricing information will be available approximately 30 days prior to sales availability.
