    depends on your need. if you just need a flash stronger than a pop up, but less features than a SB600/800/900, then go for it.

    if you have more budget to splurge on, can get a 2nd hand SB800, can do off camera wireless CLS, etc... but not for newbies.

    for Nikon D60, SB-600 will be a good combo. personally, i like SB-800 over SB-600 only for its built-in bounce card.
    would not like to recommend SB-400. you may end up with selling it out and change to SB-600 or SB-800 soon
    to your better flash photos

    but the built-in bounce card is pretty small imo. if u don hv the budget or wont use so much, get a SB600 and make ur own. i tink more worth it...

    I tink SB400 not worth it coz u cant swivel. u will be limited in terms of lighting creativity...

    no to SB-400 unless you are not serious about lighting go for at least SB-600 and above.
    Do note that when you buy equipment for DSLR, especially true for flash, it is sunken cost
    as the item will wear out.
