My Nikon D60 DSLR
This blog is a remembrance and a tribute to my Nikon D60 DSLR. It should be the last camera with a CCD sensor before Nikon introduces the CMOS sensor to their newer DSLR models. Although the low light high ISO performance of this Nikon model wasn't superb and as an entry level DSLR, the functions of the body is still worthy and good enough for the average amateur photographer. User access and control menus are easy to use. The color of the photos taken from this cam was superb with natural and vibrant intensity. It beats the Nikon D5000 and D90 anytime. In good light and paired with a good lens, shooting on the streets with it was a bliss! It is small and feels lightweight in my hands. I regret not taking good care of it and had used it in a shower once. I guess the water which seeped through might have caused some permanent damage to it's circuitry and a faulty aperture control cannot be fixed even after replacing it once. Bought the cam in year 2008 and fixed the aperture control in 2009. Just a couple of months ago i had to dump it and send it to the eWaste recycling bin in my neighbourhood. If i could turn back time i will cherish and love it like my dearest. Now i take care of my lenses and camera bodies more than ever! I hope you will also cherish your cams too!
