“The Nikon F60 is a very consitent and sturdy...”

Written on: 16/07/2003 by Clint. (1 review written)

The Nikon F60 is a very consitent and sturdy camera.(It can take pretty hard hits without being damaged as I have already found out.)
The multiple exposure mode would be a nice thing to have but what does a real photographer want with that option? He would seldom use it. If at all.
In short, it is a awesome camera. I love it… Read Full Review

“Nikon's reputation as a producer of fine photographic...”

Written on: 03/08/2002 by Humanhoover. (1 review written)

Nikon's reputation as a producer of fine photographic gear is evident in this piece of engineering. The camera body is solid, well made, ergonomically comforting, aesthetically svelte, and is a breeze to use. This was meant as a bottom end auto-focus SLR replacing the F50 in the Nikon range, and as a bottom end price point item, I'm willing to forego certain items like depth of field preview. Basically it does what it should, it takes great pictures! The trend has been to make SLRs smaller and… Read Full Review

Reply to Duc Quang:-
Choice between F60 and F65:- I would recommend going to F65 since it has more features than F60. Although F60 is a fine camera and well made (Made in Japan), the disadvantage is that it doesn't have multiple exposure capability, depth of field preview, manual ISO over-ride, and it has no adapter to take AA batteries. It is also discontinued in production, having been superseded by both the F55 and F65. The F65 has multi-point focusing, depth of field preview, multiple exposure capability, AA power pack adapter, auto-exposure bracketing, and can take Nikon's vibration reduction VR lenses. However, the F65's flash-synchro shutter speed is 1/90 sec, whereas the F60 is 1/125 sec, and the F65 isn't made in Japan.
The lense makers Sigma, Tamron and Tokina all make lenses compatible for Nikon, just ensure that it is AF-D compatible for Nikon. The "D" means that it has a CPU in the lens which takes the distance to the subject into consideration.

Written on: 06/07/2002 by John. (1 review written)

The Nikon F60 is a brilliant intermediate 35mm SLR camera and not as bad as the other reviews are depicting it. I also have an F100 and think that for what you pay for this SLR, you are getting very good value for money. My F100 cost about £950 without a lens. It has more than enough features on it to keep even the most adventurist photographer happy. I like it. You can't go far wrong with it… Read Full Review

“This Nikon F60 was the first 35mm SLR camera I...”

Written on: 29/05/2002 by Maska45. (1 review written)

This Nikon F60 was the first 35mm SLR camera I grabbed. I bought it in Paris two years ago, in a combo with two zooms: a 28-80 AF-D and a 75-240 AF-D. An excellent setup for newbies.

Since then, I've been using it a lot, shooting different subjects (landscapes, portraits, sports, etc.) and under different conditions (everything except heavy rain) with excellent results. Just two words to qualify it: SOLID and CONSISTENT. If you get to know it well, it will never let you down.

For example… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/09/2001 by Guru. (1 review written)

Overall, a very good camera, especially at £200 with the 28-80mm Nikkor D lens. The F60 does almost everything you could wish for (apart from multiple exposure). The F60 can utilise the NAIS manual focus lenses (but with no exposure control, except with TTL flash). Very simple to use, but can be as complicated as you wish. LCD viewfinder readout of shutter and f-stop is a bonus, as is the built-in TTL flash… Read Full Review
