    Hi everyone, just signed up here as I am looking to get into photography.

    My names Brett, I'm from the UK and I'm looking for some advice.
    I have been offered a brand new Nikon D60 pretty cheap and before I buy it I would like some opinions please.

    Is it any good?
    Good for beginner?
    Personal thoughts if you own one.

    I am passionate about photo's even though I only have a Samsung Digimax A4 at the moment (don't get me wrong I love it to pieces but now I want something a bit more... professional.)

    I have taken well over 1,000 pics with the A4 and I can't knock its image quality. I just want something better.

    :D

    Welcome to TPF Bret. If it is a Nikon and it's in good condition and the price is right, you wont go far wrong.... try comparing the price to those on ebay

    Thanks for the welcomes.

    It is brand new and only been turned on once. He got it as a gift but he already has a DSLR so he is selling it to me for £250 if I take it.

    is that the kit? or just the camera? I think I paid between £300 and £400 for a brand new one, incl the kit
    I'd say it was a good beginner camera :)

    Welcome btw :thumbup:
