I currently use a combination of Mamiya RB67 and Nikon D1H at work for Crime Scene recording. I find the D60 more versatile and easier to use than the D1 and the quality far surpassing the Nikon. Given the choice I would use my own camera for scene recording but the conditions we work under allows for blown over tripods, excessive wind and rain and I value it too much for accidental damage.
I made the choice to purchase the battery grip and have the addional functionality in portrait mode and extra battery life. I am also using the IBM 1Gb microdrive without problem.
Auto white balance for the main provides good balanced averages for point and shoot photography but I particularly like having the control to easily select manual white balance as required and encourage people to use this as often as they can.
I mentioned briefly in the Negative points ( and this is not a slight on Canon) what you see is not always what you get on the LCD. Use the histogram as Digital photography often attracts noise and lost pixels.
