Nikon D60 Leak

Nikon's replacement for the D40 and D50 entry-level digital SLRs has been slipped out today, courtesy of a press release leaked through a forum post. The historically reliable source echos past rumors that the D60 will jump from 6 to the 10.2 megapixels of the D40x and D80 but will use the newer EXPEED imaging processor of higher-end cameras, such as the D300 and D3. This should improve color metering as well as boost the camera's speed: it will capture JPEG photos at an uninterrupted three frames per second for up to 100 shots, the release suggests.

The D60 now also includes a dust removal system, which actively shakes dust from the image sensor, in addition to an on-camera retouching system to make some corrections without resorting to a computer. Costs would be kept low by using the same three-point autofocus system as the D40 and depending on the lens rather than the camera body for an autofocus motor.

Neither a price nor a release date are part of the escaped release. However, the D40 initially sold for $599 with an 18-55mm kit lens and sets a likely price target. Additionally, the PMA photography expo begins on Thursday and serves as the most likely event for the D60's introduction.
