A digital camera for film junkies7/25/2008
Thought I would never retire my trusty Nikon F3-HP. I tried digital a few years back, but the month-long lag between shutter release and the actual picture was annoying beyond description, and the decent dSLRs were out of my price range. The D60 takes fast, beautiful pictures. The in-camera processing options almost negate the need for computer touch-ups; I still shoot a bit of RAW but JPEG in the fine mode is more than exceptional when printed on color photo paper by Shutterfly or Kodak. The camera's manual functions are easy to master so you have complete exposure and focus control. One caution: BY ALL MEANS, be sure that whatever lens you're getting has their VR mode; makes a huge difference, even with fairly short focal lengths. Definitely recommend the D60 to anyone, pro or amateur.
