This is by far the cheapest deal yet for this new Nikon entry level camera. This is not much more expensive than the old Canon 400D and it has the excellent Vibration Reduction lens that normally costs £180 on it's own. Nikon are known for producing better budget lenses than Canon and this is no exception. See here for reviews:

Hi, I bought the Canon EOS 400D for £289 (if quidco validates) I was undecided but bit the bullet.... Now you have shown me this offer I might change my mind! is the Nikon D60 a better choice? I am after a good beginners DSLR, I have access to Nikon lenses everyday because I work in a Media College so this camera would be a strong contender based on the lenses alone! Please help me decide :-(

Probably not much between the 2 body wise however Canon lenses are generally poorer at the budget end. The 400D kit lens is not a patch on this camera's VR kit lens. With your access to Nikon lenses this would certainly seem a better option for you

I would argue that body wise there are several advatages for the Nikon D60 compared to the Canon which is a year older.

- Nikon's have the best reputation in digital SLR's for noise control. The is crucial for those looking to take photos indoors and in low light without a flash in order to keep a natural look to the photo. It's certainly the only budget SLR (along with the D40) that is capable of taking images at 1600 ISO that still look relatively noise free.
- The Sensor Cleaning System is more advanced and works in two ways to keep dust away
- The Expeed processor that they've put in the D60 is the one used the on the professional Nikons which and has a number of benefits including in-camera Lateral Chromatic Aberration Correction and Active D-Lighting. It also improves tonality and colour rendition
- Active D-Lighting is a software process that brings detail out of shadows. The version in the D60 is a newer version not found in any older models
- The Nikon bodies has always had industry wide recognition that they are the most comfortable to hold and use. This is no different with the D60.

Add to this a lens that is 10 times better than the widely recognised rubbish Canon 400d stock lens and it's a no brainer to me.

I can't understand why anyone would choose a year old Canon model that is no where near as good a package as the Nikon D60 when it's only £40 less.


Thanks for your advice guys, I chose the Canon mainly because of my budget, but as the D60 is now in my price range I do agree with both of your comments (I must admit I am a real novice when it comes to taking photo's! but have good knowledge of editing within Photoshop as I work and teach graphic design....
P.s. The delivery man has just dropped the 400d at my door and must admit I am tempted to open it, ARGHH

Resist - I was trying to be impartial but as a Nikon man & reading carleasts reply the D60 with that far superior lens in a NO BRAINER

I can't believe this is so cold when an older camera with a worthless lens is selling for only £40 cheaper and people vote it hot in their droves. Shows how much people know about cameras here!

A I right in thinking that this camera has not got the live view screen???

Original Poster

No live view. But neither does the Canon 400D. Either way it's maybe a handy function but to be honest the natural position to keep a camera steady is close to the body/face. If you use live view you'll be increasing camera shake which not what you want if you're trying to take high quality pictures.

Carleast, I have sent the 400D back this morning (free of charge) just a bit gutted that I did not order the D60 on Saturday as the 10% off has finished now!
