The Nikon D60 is a 10.2 megapixel digital single-lens reflex camera announced in January 2008. The D60 succeeds the entry-level Nikon D40x. The D60 features the Nikon EXPEED image processor introduced in the higher-end Nikon D3 and D300.
The list price of the D60 was announced as 749€ in Germany.
Compared to the D40, new features of the Nikon D60 include:
- Stop-movie Creation
- Nikon EXPEED Processor
- Self-cleaning sensor unit
- Air-flow Control System
- LCD Screen Orientation Rotation
- Active D-Lighting (1 level)

The Nikon D60 body is very similar to the Nikon D40
, with the placement of several key buttons the most notable difference. Like the D40, the Nikon D60 has no secondary display on top of the body (common in higher-end DSLRs), but instead displays shutter speed
, and other information on the main LCD screen.
