The Nikon D60 adds a number of great new features, including some borrowed from the high-end D3 and D300 to the popular entry-level D40X digital SLR. These include a two-pronged sensor—dust-control system, Nikon’s EXPEED image-processing concept, Active D-Lighting, in-camera NEF (RAW) processing, stop-motion movie mode, white-balance bracketing and an 18-55mm VR (Vibration Reduction) zoom as the kit lens. The result is a quick-responding camera that’s compact, easy to use and capable of creative photography. Retained are the D40X’s super-compact body, 10.2-megapixel CCD image sensor with 1.5x focal-length factor, 2.5-inch 170-degree-viewable LCD monitor, 3-point autofocusing down to -1 EV via the Multi-CAM 530 AF module, 3D Color Matrix Metering II via a 420-segment RGB sensor, eight Digital Vari-Programs and a built-in i-TTL Speedlight with -3 to +1 EV flash exposure compensation.
