The image will not display in the viewfinder when taking the picture. Picture does show after it is taken but can not see it when trying to take it.


You mean the LCD screen and not the viewfinder, right? That's the way the D60 works. Like other SLR cameras for over half a century, it offers a viewfinder (that's the little window at the back of the "hump") for framing and composition. The LCD screen is for review (looking at the picture AFTER you take it) and for menus. More recent DSLRs offer a LiveView capability where you use the screen for framing and composition. Nikon introduced this feater with the D3 and D300, released a year or so after the D60.
Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

I have just purchased a Nikon D60 and the viewfinder eyepiece always appear blurry prior to taking a photograph. Yet, when I take the picture it is clear and sharp so the picture is in focus, but prior to...


There's a diopter adjustment control near the right edge of the viewfinder. Look through the viewfinder at a blank wall and adjust this until the focus marks appear sharp.

I have a Nikon D60 camera. Switched it on today and there is no image in the LED display when I try to take a picture, the screen is black.


That's normal for the D60. It works the same way SLRs have worked for half a century: you view and compose through the optical viewfinder, then snap the picture. The D60 lacks the Live View feature of more recent dSLRs; the LCD (not LED) display on the back is for menus, settings, and reviewing pictures after you've taken them. It is not for composing and framing your pictures.

My Nikon D60 freezes or more accurately 'thinks - as the yellow light lights up' for more than 3 seconds after a photo is taken. I was just wondering is this anything to do with my shutter? and are there...


Hello,

This is probably not the shutter as the light shows it is writing to the card so it must have already taken the photograph.

The active D-lighting feature slows the camera down, also writing RAW files and noise reduction.

When you have saved the photos you want format the card a few times in case this has an error.

Hope this helps.

My nikon D60 is taking dark photos.


The only reason the camera will be taking dark photos is when it is under exposing the image taken. This can be due to the exposure compensation set to under expose the metered exposure. Make sure the expsosure compensation is set to '0' or increase it to compensate for the dark photos.

Also inaccurately metering a scene (such as a high contrast scene) can easily fool the meter into under exposing, especially outdoors.

Where can I find a download for D60 raw files? I have taken photographs using the RAW format and now wish to use the raw controls to edit them. How do I find the appropriate download


Nikon have their own free viewer which allows you to convert the files to jpg etc.

If you want a program that can edit D60 Raw files then you could try AbelRawer.

Photoscape has general converter (to Tiff / jpg etc) as well as an editor but I am unsure if it can edit raw files.

All the programs above are freeware.

Adobe photoshop has all the necessary editing power, but is expensive.

Hope that is of help to you.

How do I stop my Nikon D60 from highlighting white spots?


When you are in the playback mode, press the up or down arrow on the back dial until the screen scrolls through the various overlays until you get to the screen you want...usually the screen with the frame numbers on it. If this helps, please rate accordingly, thanks.

Nikon D60 and a box on the screen


i am assuming that you are not talking about the "shooting info display on page 9 of the manual.
if it is the Photo info (sounds most likely) you can change that display by scrolling you can change your display by using the multi selector. From that screen i believe you hit the left tab by the okay key twice. Play around. when you get the display you want. just leave it alone and they will all display that way. That happened to me during a soccer game.. very frustrating.. see no way to lock it.

Nikon D60 newbie : colour distortion / large smudge in photos


D-SLR cameras are designed to be used with interchangeable lenses and foreign matter may enter the camera when lenses are changed. Once inside the camera, this foreign matter may adhere to the sensor, where it may appear in photographs taken under certain conditions. To prevent foreign matter from entering the camera
  • do not change lenses in dusty environments
  • point the camera down when changing lenses.
  • e738ca2.jpg
To protect the camera when no lens is in place be sure to thread on the body cap provided with the camera, being careful to first remove all dust and other foreign matter that may be adhering to the body cap.
Remove foreign matter from low-pass filter
  1. Clean the low-pass filter covering the sensor as instructed in the camera manual or continue reading below.
  2. Have the low-pass filter cleaned by authorized Nikon Authorized Service Center
  3. The Nikon D300 and D60 has the ability to clean the sensor* using the "Clean Image Sensor" feature. Please see page 371 in your D300 User's Manual, and page160 in your D60 User's Manual for more information. *Clean Image Sensor may not remove all sensor contamination and additional manual cleaning may be necessary. See page 374 in the D300 manual, and page 162 in the D60 manual for more information.
  4. Fix images with black spots
    Photographs with dust or foreign matter on the low-pass filter can be retouched using the 'Image Dust Off' function available in Nikon Capture 4 or later (available separately) if the image was taken in the NEF format, for more information visit the article on 'How does Image Dust off' work.
