The Nikon D60:

Nikon D60

Announced in January 2008, the Nikon D60 replaced the entry level Nikon D40x. It utilizes the same 10.2 megapixel sensor found in the Nikon D200 and Nikon D80, and adds Nikons EXPEED processor, first introduced in the Nikon D3 and D300 a few months prior, as well as a self cleaning sensor unit.

At virtually the same size as the Nikon D40, the very compact Nikon D60 is the smallest Nikon DSLR ever made. Designed to be small and very simple to use, the Nikon D60 produces outstanding results, and is consistently one of the best selling and most popular DSLRs.
