  • I bought books and downloaded PDF e- books on the said subject
  • I applied everything I learned making use of my Nikon Coolpix Point and Shoot camera
  • I like the fact that the battery charges for just 90 minutes and it last days of photo shoot
  • So if you are a hobbyist or just starting up with digital photography and you are looking for a digital SLR that's easy to use, get a Nikon D60.I checked out its price, it ranges from $400-$600 but it is definitely worth it

      I have been using a a Nikon point and shoot camera for quite some time now. A couple of months ago, I came across a free online class on digital photography offered by Hewlett Packard. I took one class, after all, it’s free. Before I knew it, I was taking another class and then another. I became hooked to digital photography. I bought books and downloaded PDF e- books on the said subject. I applied everything I learned making use of my Nikon Coolpix Point and Shoot camera. I did okay but there seem to be something missing. For one, I cannot control the depth of field. I cannot control the aperture, the ISO, the shutter speed. It is because these controls are limited in a typical

      point and shoot camera. I long for a digital single lens reflex camera. But I know it is not that affordable. Most digital SLRs cost over 500 bucks. So I just researched, read reviews, continue learning about digital photography until I can afford one.

      Lucky me, my 5th wedding anniversary came. My loving husband got me a new Nikon D60. It came with an 18-55 mm lens, battery pack and a charger, a camera neck strap, a USB connector and an instruction manual. And oh, my husband got me a nice Nikon camera bag and a DVD tutorial.

      I just love my Nikon D60. As my first digital SLR camera, I was a bit intimidated by it initially. With all the buttons and the settings and the fact ...


      • that you need to into the diopter to see the subject, unlike in the point and shoot camera, you can always see everything in your screen. But after taking a few shots and recalling all that I have learned in my classes, I get used to it and loved it totally. This Nikon D60 is so easy to use. It is lightweight weighing only 17.5 oz. It has a resolution of 10.2 mega pixel. ISO settings are 100, 200, 400,800, 1600, 3200 and auto. It has shooting programs for Landscape, portrait mode, close-up, night portrait, children and sports mode. Added features include direct printing, USB 2.0 compatibility, date/time stamp, display brightness control, digital image rotation, camera orientation detection, in camera processing and more. The rest of
        the features, I am still trying to discover. But for the whole month that I spent with my Nikon D60, I am fully satisfied. I made outputs that I am proud of whether it’s a portrait, sceneries or macro shots. I like the fact that the battery charges for just 90 minutes and it last days of photo shoot.

        So if you are a hobbyist or just starting up with digital photography and you are looking for a digital SLR that’s easy to use, get a Nikon D60.I checked out its price, it ranges from $400-$600 but it is definitely worth it.

        It has simple operation but enough capability to get creative with your shots. Good for professionals, amateurs and hobbyist. I highly recommend it to others.
