Restoring the Factory Settings of the Nikon D60 Digital SLR

Nikon D60 digital camera is the successor to the previous Nikon D40x. Some things that were developed since the Nikon D40x is automatic image sensor cleaning, and some other things. This camera has a resolution of 10 megapixels, which can capture continuous images (without a stop at the moment the shutter button is pressed) as much as 3 frames per second. Equipped with a fairly wide LCD, which is 2.5 in, makes us increasingly easier to see the images that we capture.

Nikon D60 Digital Camera on its body is not equipped with auto focus motors. This makes the Nikon D60 camera if you want to use the autofocus feature, must be combined with the AF-S type lens and AF-I lens which is already equipped with autofocus motors. However NIKKOR lenses other types can still be used as usual on this camera, but because the lens in addition to AF-S and AF-I do not have autofocus motors, the autofocus feature can not be used on the Nikon D60.

On the inside of the lens mount Nikon D60, equipped with the latest anti-dust system. Nikon uses two kinds of ways to clean the dust on the sensor, the first by using ultrasonic waves low-pass-filter to provide vibration so that the dust falling from the sensor, and the second technique is with Airflow Control System, which is the presence of small internal holes reflection mirror viewfinder, so that when the glass is moving, it will generate a breeze due to the movement of the glass which will result in dust falling in the hole. Nikon D60 is equipped with EXPEED image processor, which works to produce the maximum and better speed, noise reduction is more perfect that the use of the camera on the circumstances that require a high ISO can still produce relatively good image and its noise is acceptable.

At the top of the Nikon D60, there is a pop-up flash that move electronically, so its movement is controlled by the motor. Nikon D60 camera’s internal flash has a guide number 12 at ISO 100, it is equal to the internal flash found on the Nikon D40x. In addition to the internal flash, the Nikon D60 is also equipped with a hot shoe for adding an external flash. The hot shoe on the camera support iTTL flash metering for the type of flash SB-400, SB-600 and SB-800 Speedlight. The right side of this camera, there is a AF assist lamp, the light that helps to focus on the target object if the lighting conditions are dark. In addition to help focus, AF-assist lamp on a Nikon D60 camera also serves to provide a count, by the time counter for the self-timer. Other functions again from the AF-assist light cameras is to help reduce the red-eye effect. So if we use the Red-Eye features in the dim light conditions, the AF-assist lamp will light up in advance to make our eyes become a little glare, after the main flash will work simultaneously shooting.

Nikon D60 uses the EN-EL9 lithium battery, this type is also used on the Nikon D40 and D40x. For D60 camera power management, battery use a little more extravagant when compared to its predecessor the Nikon D40x. For D60 camera, is mentioned for normal use, the battery can be used to capture photos up to 500x. But this is very influential with how much use the LCD and also the internal flash. Because the more often we use the LCD to review or camera setting, the more extravagant the purposes of its battery consumption. Suggested to have a backup battery to avoid unwanted conditions.
