Nikon D60 Review

Nikon changed direction with the introduction of the D40 in 2006 and the D40x in 2007. The digital SLR camera was allowed to become compact and one should be able to carry it around just as easily as a compact camera. Of course there are limits from a technical point of view as to how compact a DSLR can get, but it's definitely a great achievement to develop a compact digital SLR camera and keep it easy to handle at the same time. Nikon is continuing the concept of the D40/D40x with the introduction of the Nikon D60.

The resolution of the Nikon D60 remained the same; with 10.2 Megapixels the camera sticks to the 'standard' resolution for entry-level digital SLR camera models. The D60 uses the technology that has also been applied in the warmly welcomed D300. The EXPEED image processor inside the Nikon D60 ensures achieving the highest possible image quality as an end result. The auto focus unit is Nikon's Multi-CAM 530 AF sensor module with TTL phase detection and a 3 point AF system.

Nikon Digital SLR
The wind has been with Nikon over the last few years. The developments on the field of DSLR are fast but Nikon keep pace with great ease. Products with important and great innovations appear in nearly every segment. I can't say otherwise; Nikon impress me hugely with what they have achieved lately. An innovator like Nikon is enrichment for photography and adds greatly to the enthusiasm of amateur and professional photographers who are using their tools in a creative way.

Nikon D60 Review
I have had the possibility to test the new Nikon D60 in practice together with a Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 G VR lens. Beforehand I qualified the D60 as a successor to the Nikon D40x but officially there is no mentioning of it being a successor. We therefore will not say goodbye to the D40x but welcome a new Nikon family member; the Nikon D60. My findings can be read in the following Nikon D60 review.

The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
