You're asking a bunch of people who suffer Nikon Acquisition Syndrome whether this excuse is good enough to justify buying a new camera? You can try resetting factory settings, re-installing the software (download from Nikon and follow the bouncing ball) or simply buy a newer and better camera. Which path you go down is pretty much a personal choice.
Firstly I would say do what DPR suggests reinstall the latest firmware and reset everything to factory default. If it is a software failure then the software can be changed.
Next I suggest you take your 18-55 lens and a SD card into your local camera reseller and get them to let let you take some shots with a demo D3200 or D5100 (or D5200) body. See what those shots look like on your PC compared to your D60 ones (take the D60 along as well and take shots with the same settings if you want).
Have you looked at these funny coloured images on anything other than you PC at home? Are you sure that there is no problem with your computer monitor?
The last thing I would suggest is to open a free Flickr account if you do not already have one and put some of the funny coloured images there then post them here. Preferably leave the Exif data with the photos.
Look on the bright side, people pay good money for filters that cause that pink color cast.
Thanks again for very useful advice, K1W1 I'll try and get to a camera shop this weekend and test what's out there against what I already have.
I know it's not my PC monitor as the green strip still appears on my iPad when I transfer them across.
I've found this thread extremely useful, so just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has offered advice.
Oh and TheWengler, if people pay good money for filters that cause that pink colour cast... Wanna buy a D60 that'll do it all for you? ;-)
As a final note: have you changed out the memory card? I have had some problems with color banding related to this problem. Even on my D7000 using a class 10 SD card I see occasional (sometimes serious) banding (in NEF images). When I switched cards the problem went away. Happened with a CF card on my D70 as well.
Have you tried testing the memory card on any of the speed software to check its legit?
Ive had some that seem to be the real thing, and some times they are, but run subpar.
Make sure you use and external reader, to eliminate the camera which might be the issue.
I had a similar problem and tried everything could think of (reseting, local camera repair shop, tutorials online) then eventually just had enough. Was out of warranty so was looking for a new camera, but Mrs sent it away to this repair site i think.
But did that stop me looking at an upgrade...
Got a 64gb class10 UHS1 though off amazon blackfriday :)
