Tarquin.'s review of Nikon F60

★★★★☆

“I use this Nikon F60 35mm SLR camera as back-up to two...”

Written on: 28/02/2002 by Tarquin. (1 review written)

Good Points
Easy to use controls. Generally reliable matrix metering. TTL flash works well. Handles well. Very easy for a beginner to get good results. Solid build.

Bad Points
Metering mode not manually selectable (AE lock automatically engages centre-weighted metering). Viewfinder on the dim side. WILL NOT METER MANUAL FOCUS LENSES!! No cable release socket.

General Comments
I use this Nikon F60 35mm SLR camera as back-up to two F70 bodies. My kids also use it when on holiday. There is enough here to enable someone to produce good photographs even if they have minimal operational skills. I see the main problem as being the lack of long term potential for an enthusiast - s/he will want to upgrade in order to get some of the more useful features such as spot metering, cable release socket, auto-bracketing, more exact exposure setting & the ability to meter with manual focus lenses. The F70 has all these things for very little more money on the used market.

However, to get you started, it's a good choice.
