Xanny here. I'm not accustomed to asking for help, especially in this economy but I figured I would give it a shot anyway. My Nikon D60 is apparently on its last legs (or dead) and that of course means the end of Xanography and my photography hobby. The D60 is no longer manufactured as far as I'm aware, and I did find a suitable replacement: a Nikon D3100.
Any donation will be put towards the purchase price of this camera (as of this posting, 450.00 on Amazon).
