Question about Nikon D60 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I've got spots on my ccd (Nikon D60). I've blown it off with compressed air, but this doesn't remove everything. The manual warns not to touch the cover of the ccd with anything and says if the compressed air doesn't do it, send it in for cleaning. Last time I did that through my local camera shop it was better, but still a couple spots. Any suggestions?

You're going to have to do a "wet" cleaning. If you google the words "cleaning a DSLR sensor", you will find sites explaining the procedure and where you can obtain the supplies. It may sound daunting, but once you do it, you will see how easy it really is and be able to do it whenever you need to in the future.

I've used the Quantaray PZ-1 DSZ on my Nikon N80 film camera and had no problems. I would like to use it on my digital Nikon D60.


There is no problem with the trigger voltage, which I assume is your primary concern. You may not get all of the features you would with a Nikon flash, but you should be able to use it with the D60 just as you use it with the N80.

Removing the wallpaper picture from my Nikon D60


To change the Info display format, follow the instructions in the "Info Display Format" section of the manual (page 120 in my copy). If you simply want to change the wallpaper image to one of your own, follow the instructions under "Wallpaper" (page 122 in my copy).

If you need a manual, you may download a copy from here.

I have a nikon d60... is the tamron 70-300 zoom lens compatible ?


Tamron makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. A lens with a Canon mount, for example, will not fit a Nikon. Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount then yes, it is compatible with the D60. However, the D60 lacks an autofocus motor, relying on the lens to have one. Some Tamron lenses have such a motor, some do not. Such lenses will not autofocus with the D60, but everything else still works, including manual focus.

A small brown spot is on all of the pictures I've taken starting today. Looked back at pictures from last week and didn't see it. Same place all pictures, both lens.


Hiit is simple dust particles. I can let you know by very simple tip. But unfortunately I can not describe in word everything. First thing you can try is that you can you ear know remover or squeeze blower. Set the camera at ccd cleaning mode.(not auto mode) See front inside of mirror box when mirror goes up, you can recognize the brown spot. Blow with the blower. Other method is I can not expain everything.

My son has a Nikon D60, He says he gets a lot of noise when he puts them on his laptop, what causes this!


Commonly, picture that had a lot of noise is due to some several reasons:
1.the ISO was set too high e.g 800, 1600 or Hi-1, try to take using ISO 100/200
2.the Noise Reduction option was turned off, it helps but takes a bit longer before the result shows
3.D60 is still using CMOS sensor, which produced `more` noise than the CCD type processor

hope this advice help you with your problem

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.

3 black tiny spots on picture shot with nikon d70s


You probably have some dust on the cameras sensor.

There are a couple of sample images of what this looks like here and here.

Dust spots typically have a softish edge to them and affect more than 1 pixel. (if it is just the 1 pixel affected, with a very sharp edge, this could be a defective sensor).

Follow the instructions in the manual for cleaning the sensor. Avoid touching the sensor (unless it is with a specialist sensor cleaning brush) and avoid cans of compressed air; use a hand-blower brush instead.

PICTURE WITH BLACK SPOT


CCD sensor has some dirt/dust on it . Set camera to B ( in manual mode scroll until 'bulb' is displayed in the top display ) . Take lens off and release the shutter and keep the button pressed down so that the sensor is exposed : use blower to remove dust/dirt but NB do not touch sensor surface as you will make it even dirtier. Take some shots to see if the spot has gone and repeat if it has not disapear.

A faint spot in all of my photos!!!


For me the issue was flecks of dust on the CCD. Complete fix for d40x effected as follows:

(You will need a 'rocketblower' or similar air cleaning device)

Take the lens off. Set camera to Manual setting and spin around to 'bulb' setting, press the button to shoot but hold it down. You will see the CCD exposed inside the hole where the lens usually attaches. Then taking care not to touch the CCD with the rocket blower give it a few blasts of air onto the ccd. (Possibly before you do this hold the camera at an angle to the light and you might see the dust flecks I had on the CCD.) Then replace let the button go and replace the lens. Voila.
