Assuming you are in the United States, Wolf Camera has locations across the country and offers group classes at reasonable rates but will be more than happy to offer private fee based lessons on digital photography and specifically on operating your D60 and any other camera they sell in scenario based lessons of portrait, action / sport, nature, etc.

If you pay for private lessons you can write your own curriculum and at your pace since prices will be hourly. If your objectives are beyond their expertise, they'll refer you to local photographers who they feel are qualified to provide the level of instruction and expertise you seek.

We took the classroom training then was referred to a local photographer who wasn't a Wolf employee and for three private lessons to learn how to use our Nikon D80 and it was some of the best money spent.

D60 connected to my computer but win dows is not recognizing it


I can't give you specific step-by-step instructions without knowing what version of Windows you have, but it sounds like either Windows Plug-N-Play either does not know that your camera is connected or the correct driver program for your camera is not installed in Windows. Go to Nikon's website and download and install the latest drivers for the D60 and then go to the Windows Control Panel and using the Installation program to install the drivers. There should be instructions on the Nikon website.

How slove the problem


Introduction

Specifications Recommendations

The Nikon D60 is an inexpensive 10 MP DSLR that comes with an excellent 18-55mm VR lens for about $650 as of June 2008. It was a announced in January, 2008, and sold for about $750 with lens in February 2008.

The Nikon D60 is a replacement for the almost identical D40x.

Personally I prefer Nikon's least expensive D40 over the D60 or D40x. The D60, D40x and D40 are actually exactly the same cameras, differering only slightly in their internal electronics, but differing greatly in their prices.

The D60 is actually a D40 body with a few more card-clogging pixels, a VR lens and adaptive dynamic range, but a slower maximum shutter speed with flash.

The D60 is less sensitive to light then the D40 (its default ISO is only ISO 100 compared to the D40's default ISO of 200). Its less sensitive to light because the pixels have to be made smaller to cram more of them into the same-sized sensor. Smaller pixels collect fewer photons than larger pixels. Since the D60 is half as light sensitive, the D60 has to use twice as long a shutter speed or a larger aperture, which makes it more likely to make a blurry picture than the D40. OOPS!

Save your money and get the D40 instead. The D40's faster sync speed is invaluable for use with flash outdoors, and the extra light sensitivity in normal use will help make sharper pictures. These three cameras (D40, D40x, D60) otherwise, for most users, are identical. Compare them in person and you'll see. Megapixels don't matter.

(I detail the few fine points which are new in the D60 further below.)

I had my hands on a D60 back in January 2008. The D60 is an excellent camera, but for most of the people who will buy it, it's the same thing as the $300 less expensive D40. I'd suggest getting a D40 and putting the $300 towards more lenses and/or a bouncable flash.

In fact, the faster flash sync speed (the fastest shutter speed with flash) is more than twice as fast in the D40 (1/500 vs. 1/200), and along with the faster base ISO, the D40 is more likely to make sharper photos for most people, for hundreds of dollars less!

The only significant feature in the D60 over the D40x and D40 is adaptive dynamic range. The D60 does not have any of the other next-generation functionality of the D3 and D300.

The D60 is just a D40 with more pixels, but slower shutter speeds with flash outdoors and less basic light sensitivity due to the smaller pixels needed to jam more of them onto the same-sized sensor.

I make excellent 12 x 18" (30 x 50 cm) prints from my 6 MP D40; do you plan to print bigger? Really? The resolution makes no difference unless I'm printing at 20 x 30" (60 x 80 cm) or more.

Since the D60 costs $300 more than the D40, I'd much rather have a D40, 1/500 flash sync for better daylight fill-flash range, a minimum ISO of 200 and $300 left over to buy lenses and an external flash that I can bounce for better lighting. For instance, the D40, 55-200mm VR and SB-400 is a far better way to spend the same $750.

Do D60 has vedio recording system and which is the best profesional camera in range of 25000-31or 32000


The D60 does not record video.

As for the best professional camera in any price range, it depends on the type of photography.The best camera for sports photography is not necessarily the best camera for studio photography or for landscape photography. As for a specific price range, that depends on the currency. Most professional cameras cost more than 32000 Japanese yen and less than 25000 US dollars.

Would like to purchase a dvd tutorial for the nikon d60 on how to use this camera.


First, there's a free online video from Nikon at
http://www.nikondigitutor.com/eng/d60/index.shtml

Nikon also has a DVD for dSLRs in general, normally available at http://www.nikonmall.com/ I'm afraid I can't give you a specific link since they're down for maintenance until tomorrow.

Blue Crane Digital has a nice DVD:

Lark Books has a nice multimedia guide (book&DVD):

Why my nikon d60 wont display any image when i take photos with it


The D60 operates as SLRs have operated for half a century, showing the image through an optical viewfinder. Only more recent dSLRs have the LiveView capability allowing you to use the LCD monitor for this. Currently the D5000 is the lowest-priced Nikon with this capability.

I have a Nikon D60 and my autofocus has stopped working. It is not because of the lense because i have tried other lenses and the auto focus won't work with them either so it must be an issue with the...


You should check custom menu setting 2, and make sure it's set to one of the auto modes. Make sure the lenses you are using are AF-S and not regular AF lenses. The D60 has no autofocus motor, so autofocus only works with AF-S lenses.

I always suggest folks take a look at Ken Rockwell's website also, here's a link to a specific page on autofocus on the D60.

Post a comment here if none of this works and I'll see what else we can do.
