I went from a OM-10 to the F(N)60 about 6 months ago and hvenotlooked back. For someone that i nota professial but has been using a SLR for 20 years this was the best value for me. has all the features i need but might be lacking 1 or 2 that would put m in the F5 or F6 pe range ($4000.00).

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

Written on: 09/11/2002 by kdp. (1 review written)

This is a good camera for the novice. It is easy to use, feels great to hold and is sturdy and durable. However, it's not appropriate for someone who has used SLR's before, except as a backup. If you are upgrading from a manual SLR, it will pay to go for an intermediate camera, and maybe add extra lenses over time. I found the metering to be poor in anything but ideal conditions. The autofocus is slow, particularly with long lenses. Before you buy, ask yourself what sort of photographer you… Read Full Review

I have always used the manual function of the SLR camera. My first camera was a Nikon FM10 and then I switched to a F60 thinking that I would get better shots. I was wrong..it is user friendly alright but I find the functions very limited and redundant. Now I'm going back to a fully manual camera!… Read Full Review

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

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

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… Read Full Review

What a completely useless 'review'. What is it exactly that you don't like? Webmaster: this 'review' (I use the term very loosely) should be deleted as it is taking up far too many bytes of webspace on your server :-(

Buddy,
<br> I think you absolutely don't know what a camera is used for. You're supposed to look into the veiw finder not the lens. I have the camera and I'm in love with it. It has everything I need and more. I have been into photography since I was a kid. Apparently you have no use for a camera whatsoever.

Written on: 07/07/2003

Useless review, no constructive critisism, the main question is... Why on earth did the guy buy it if it is so bad? Mine has been faultless! OK so the body isn't in the same league as the F4 - but it is supposed to be an entry into the Nikon system of lenses & accessories! In that respect it does exactly what it says on the tin! My only regret that it got me into the 'system' and I ended up buying a D1x as film does not do justice to the lenses!!

Written on: 16/04/2003

This "review" should be removed. Such nonsense distorts the results achieved legitimately from those who have taken the trouble to review it properly. I have an F60 and it's well made and will take images up to the quality of the lens. It's limitations lie in the competence (or incompetence in this case) of the photographer. It's missing a couple of features for professionals (like DoF preview and cable release) but it's not aimed at them. In terms of a nice to handle step into serious photography - it does the job as well as any rivals and better than most.

What an idiot. I am a professional photographer and own an F5, F90x, F801 and 801s and an F60. The F60 is a fine entry to the Nikon range. It has more features than my old 801 and even though it is plastic it has maintained some of the weighty feel that Nikon users love.
It is far more solid than many other SLR's on the market and takes first class photo's.
Get a brain, you obviously no nothing about photography whatsoever.

Please state why you don't like it - its all very well saying that you do or do not like a thing, but please back up your claims. I use one along side my F2a and F3, and find it to be very good.

Written on: 26/08/2002

Surely this review was a plant meant to solicite a deluge of juxta-positional responses. Da!!!! What might this guy like for cameras...disposable or maybe Brownie?? I really liked all the illustrations he used to back his opinion like complexity of operation, malfunctions, unreliability, uglyness of design and awkwardness of handling, or could it have been lack of accessories???
<br>I'm proud of my F60 (a 60X's improvement on the F) and the pics I can produce with it, or for that matter, my child. Read the manual guy!!!
<br>I use a Nikkormat 80 - 300 mm vari-tele a lot of the time. With a pod, it's the ticket...
<br>
<br>Cheers

I own one of these Nikon F60 SLR 35mm cameras and I am very pleased. I have a Nikon F100 and I would say that they compare equal. I do believe that this lad with the bad camera maybe got the only piece of pooh out there.. I am very happy with my camera. thank you nikon.

Apart from the opinion given about not liking the camera, there is no comment to qualify his opinion. It doesn't say what was wrong with the camera, whether it was bad service, what he didn't like about the camera, etc. I haven't found any problems with mine, and it is a beaut, gives me great results, and is a perfect backup to my F80. I agree with the other comments about this reviewer - it is a useless review, and "cokeizme" has passed an opinion with no substance to back it up.

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
