The Nikon D5500 is an upper-entry-level DLSR for photographers who want to expand the scope of their creative palette. Slimmer, lighter and packed full of enhancements, the Nikon D5500 is the first DX-format DSLR to come with a vari-angle touchscreen and offers a large 24.2-megapixel sensor and a wide ISO range of 100-25600 to ensure stills are full of detail and Full HD videos are smooth.
Full 24.2-megapixel power
Enjoy a level of image detail that never fails to impress. Specifically designed without an optical low-pass filter (OLPF), the D5500’s image sensor makes the most of its 24.2-megapixel resolution to sharply capture even the finest textures, and render images with incredibly crisp detail.
5 fps continuous shooting
Capture fleeting gestures or facial expressions at exactly the right moment. Capable of shooting action at a swift five frames-per-second, the D5500 captures every move.
Enjoy high-speed operation and crystal-clear images with true-to-life colour in any light. Nikon’s fast and powerful image processor boasts advanced noise reduction capabilities and enables smooth movie recording.
The exceptionally portable D5500 will be your camera of choice more often than you’d expect. Boasting a lightweight yet robust monocoque structure, this slim D-SLR is the perfect photography partner on any occasion.
Large, high-resolution monitor
See every detail of your photos and movies as you shoot from exciting perspectives. The large 8.1-cm (3.2-in.) Vari-angle LCD monitor boasts a wide-viewing angle and high 1,037k-dot resolution. Compose or review shots and apply special effects with clarity whether you’re shooting indoors or out.
Feel completely in tune with what you’re doing. The responsive touchscreen makes the D5500 as intuitive to shoot with as any smart device. Simply tap the screen to focus and shoot, or adjust settings such as aperture, ISO and shutter speed. Swipe to scroll though images, or pinch-to-zoom during playback.
Quickly adjust key settings with a finger swipe when shooting through the viewfinder. You can assign up to eight settings to the Touch Fn function, including focus points, AF area modes, aperture and ISO sensitivity.
Create distinctive photos and movies using a range of special effects. Try Pop to brighten colours; fit the whole view in with Easy Panorama; or use Toy Camera to create a retro effect. You can preview your chosen effect and adjust its intensity as you shoot.
Picture control 2.0
Perfectly reflect your creative vision. Picture Control makes it easy to take complete control over sharpening, contrast, brightness, hue, and saturation when shooting stills and video. Choose between seven modes: Standard, Neutral, Vivid, Monochrome, Portrait, Landscape and Flat, which retains all the details and preserves rich tonal information, making it the ideal choice if you plan to retouch images after shooting.
See what the camera sees and shoot with absolute clarity. Put your eye to the viewfinder and you can follow your subjects in real time, without delay or distraction. To make the shooting process even smoother, the D5500 automatically displays the image you’ve just shot on the LCD monitor the moment you take your eye away from the viewfinder.
