The Nikon D5500 is a compact DSLR capable of inspiring a new level of creativity. From the moment you flip the touchscreen Vari-angle display and capture an ultra-sharp 24.2-megapixel photo, you'll begin to see your photography in a new light. At the flick of a switch, the D5500 transforms into a versatile Full HD video camera. Record 1080 video at a high speed frame rate of 60p. Break free of the ordinary with star trail images, interval-timer sequences and HDR photography. Add artistic filters and effects and even retouch your shots right in the camera, and then share your creations instantly with built-in Wi-Fi.
From fast movement to challenging low-light situations, and from big prints to movies, the D5500 is perfect for creative individuals looking to take their photography to the next level. The camera's large 24.2 megapixel DX-format image sensor and an ISO range of 100-25,600 ensure you'll capture crisp, clean, images even in low light conditions. Combined with the power of a compatible NIKKOR lens, you get images that explode with clarity. Even when printed large or shown on a big screen, your photos and movies will be crystal-clear reflections of the way you see the world.Significantly lighter and much slimmer than its predecessor, the D5500 boasts a monocoque structure, weighting in at just 420g (without battery and memory card) and a deep grip for improved handling.
Leave image-blur behind and enjoy the freedom to create vibrant, richly detailed images that command attention. When it comes to getting the shot you want, the D5500's advanced performance ensures results that never fail to impress. Specifically designed without an optical low-pass filter (OLPF), the camera's image sensor makes the most of its 24.2-megapixel resolution to render images with incredibly crisp detail. An ISO range of 100-25,600 allows you to shoot brilliant photos and movies even when the light is scarce. Nikon's 39-point autofocus system with nine cross-type sensors in the centre is always on target no matter where your subject is in the frame; and continuous shooting speeds of up to 5 frames-per-second mean fleeting gestures or facial expressions can be snapped at exactly the right moment, even when the action is fast. With Nikon's EXPEED 4 image processor enabling high-speed operation, advanced noise reduction, and smooth movie recording, you're free to capture memorable moments with confidence.
Touchscreen control, vari-angle artistry, and built Wi-Fi: the D5500 makes it easy to get creative with your photography. Simply flip, tilt, or rotate the large vari-angle monitor to compose shots that reflect your view on the world, then tap the responsive touchscreen to focus and shoot, or adjust settings such as aperture, ISO and shutter speed. Swipe to scroll through images, or pinch-to-zoom in or out during playback. Find the shots you love, then share them using the built-in Wi-Fi function. You can even take advantage of the camera's touch control options when shooting through the viewfinder, thanks to the "Touch Fn" function that lets you quickly adjust key setting with a finger swipe. Up to eight settings can be assigned to the "Touch Fn" function, including focus points, AF area modes, aperture, and ISO sensitivity. The Wi-Fi function also makes it possible to control the camera remotely using the connected smart device: considering the vari-angle monitor and the quality of the images, your selfies will be stunning self-portraits.
When the occasion calls for video, the D-Movie function records smooth, finely detailed Full HD video clips at frame rates up to 50p/60p.
