5.0 out of 5 stars Going From Compact to DSLR?...look no further, 5 Aug 2009
This review is from: Nikon D60 Digital SLR Camera - Black (AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55 mm f/3.5-5.6G VR) (Electronics)
I've had mine for over a year now I won't bother going over all the technical details which have been covered extensively but will say that A D60 with the 18-55 lens and 55-200 lens, plus an SB 400 or 800 flash, will be all that most people will EVER need for GOOD amateur photography.

If you're thinking of upgrading your compact then DON'T, keep it and buy the D60, add the big lens when you can and the flash when you are flush.

As well as the D60 I have a new 12mp all-weather compact and believe me there is NO comparison between image quality, a good DSLR will always deliver the best image.

What I really like about the D60 is the fact that it can be used in full auto mode and still deliver excellent photos but can then be switched to manual and you can try some of those pro technical shots you read about in the magazines.

My only gripe is that the D60 doesnt have a flash commander built in but if you don't know what that is you won't ever need one anyway :)

For me Nikon have always (and I studied photography at college 25 years ago) been the Mercedes of the camera world, and I think they always will be.
