Nikon D5500 overview

  • 1Description

A first for Nikon DSLR cameras, the black D5500 incorporates a touchscreen LCD monitor, giving you greater camera control. It features a 24.2 megapixel sensor and an EXPEED 4 image processor that provide high-resolution images and Full HD 1080p video with notable low-light sensitivity up to ISO 25600 and up to 5 fps. The optical low-pass filter is omitted from the sensor, allowing for additional sharpness in both photos and videos. The D5500 has a 39-point autofocus system with nine cross-type sensors and a 2,016-pixel RGB sensor for precise exposure metering in a wide variety of lighting conditions. Full HD videos can be shot at multiple frame rates up to 60 fps, with full-time continuous auto focusing capabilities. The D5500 also has selectable  audio frequency ranges - Wide and Voice. It also has a built-in intervalometer to record up to 9,999 consecutive exposures at variable intervals.

The redesigned camera body is slightly smaller and lighter than its predecessor, and incorporates both an optical pentamirror optical viewfinder along with a large 3.2" 1,037k-dot vari-angle touchscreen LCD monitor, which features a 180° swivel design to better support working from high and low angles. A variety of touchscreen functions allow you to pinch to zoom, navigate menus, choose settings, and choose your focus point. An eye sensor turns the LCD monitor on and off, enables a Touch function, and starts the playback funtion when your eye moves away from the viewfinder.

Built-in Wi-Fi enables advanced image sharing capabilities, and when paired with an Android or iOS mobile device, remote viewing and control over the shutter release is possible from a distance.

A wide range of Picture Control modes, Scene Modes, and Special Effects modes are available as well as in-camera image editing capabilities for adjusting settings prior to sharing. Built-in HDR and Active D-Lighting modes can also be used to optimize exposure results by preserving highlight and shadow details for an extended range of apparent tones.

Included with the D5500 is the DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II lens, a general-purpose zoom lens featuring a retractable barrel for a compact, lightweight design. The lens has a 35mm equivalent zoom range of 27-82.5mm, making it useful in a wide variety of shooting conditions.

24.2MP DX-Format Sensor and EXPEED 4 Processor
The 24.2 megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 4 processor work together to produce overall high image quality with notable detail, dynamic range, color accuracy, and low-light sensitivity to a native ISO 12800, which is further expandable to ISO 25600. Additionally, the sensor's design omits an optical low-pass filter in order to acquire the greatest amount sharpness and detail from subjects. The EXPEED 4 processor also enables a wealth of speed throughout the camera system, including support for full HD 1080p movie recording and a full-resolution continuous shooting rate of 5 fps.
Multi-CAM 4800DX Autofocus Sensor
Benefitting the high image quality is an apt AF system that employs 39 distinct AF points, including nine cross-type sensors, to quickly acquire focus in a range of lighting conditions, from -1 to +19 EV. A unique 3D-tracking mode utilizes the 2,016-pixel RGB sensor, typically reserved for exposure metering, in order to maintain sharp focus on moving subjects. To better suit specific subject matter when working in AF-A or AF-C focus modes, Dynamic-area AF mode allows you to choose from 9, 21, or 39-point arrays for enhanced subject tracking and recognition, even if the subject briefly leaves the frame. Single-point AF, 3D-tracking, and Auto-area AF modes are also available.

When working in live view, for either still or movie shooting, a contrast-based AF system is employed to acquire focus precisely and can function in continuous, full-time servo mode to better suit working with moving subjects. Additionally, four AF-area modes are available when working in live view: Face-priority AF, Wide-area AF, Normal-area AF, and Subject-tracking AF.
AF-S NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II DX Lens
The 18-55mm lens has a Silent Wave Motor for quiet, quick autofocusing and also features Vibration Reduction to reduce the appearance of camera shake. The elements of the lens feature a Super Integrated Coating that nearly eliminates ghosting and reduces flaring, maintaining a crisp image throughout the frame. For general shooting, this lens features a minimum focusing distance of 9.8" in manual focus mode. A 52mm thread allows for attaching your filters or other accessories.
Touchscreen LCD Monitor
A 3.2" 1030k-dot vari-angle touchscreen LCD monitor features a 180° swivel design to better suit working from high, low, and front-facing angles.
Touchscreen functions include:
  • Menu Navigation
  • Playback: Pinch Zoom and Swipe
  • Live View AF Point and Shoot
  • Revert to Previous Layer
  • Touch Operation Permission
  • Touch for Playback Only
  • AF Point Selection
  • AF Area Mode
  • ISO Sensitivity
  • HDR
  • Active D-Lighting
  • Auto Bracketing
  • Viewfinder Grid Display
  • Aperture
  • Wi-Fi Connectivity
    Supporting a wealth of sharing and tagging possibilities, the D5500 features built-in Wi-Fi enable seamless transferring of imagery. Once the Nikon Wireless Mobile Utility app has been installed on an Android or iOS mobile device, you can use that device to browse the contents of the memory card, select images, and seamlessly transfer files between devices for immediate sharing online. Additionally, the mobile device can remotely trigger the shutter and display a live view image from the camera to enable working from a distance.
    Body Design
    Even while maintaining an overall compact form-factor, the D5500 integrates a large 3.2" 1,037k-dot vari-angle touchscreen LCD monitor. Alternatively, a bright pentamirror optical viewfinder is also integrated into the design for precise eye-level viewing and real-time monitoring of subjects.

    A built-in pop-up flash is also available for additional illumination when working in low-light conditions and supports Nikon's i-TTL flash metering system. A hot shoe can be used for connection and optional external flash for even greater lighting control.
    Scene Recognition System and Exposure Metering
    The intelligent Scene Recognition System with 3D Color Matrix Metering II utilizes a 2016-pixel RGB sensor to evaluate and analyze all aspects within a scene, including brightness, contrast, subject distance, and the scene colors, to quickly determine an accurate exposure and white balance setting to best render the scene at hand. The information gathered is also checked against onboard reference images to ensure consistency from image to image in regard to exposure, white balance, i-TTL flash settings, and subject-tracking AF performance.
    Full HD Movie Recording
    Full HD 1920 x 1080p movie recording is supported in 60, 30, 25, and 24 fps frame rates, as well as HD 720p and SD 480p in multiple frame rates, in the MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 format. During recording, full-time autofocus can be employed, with face-detection and subject-tracking capabilities, for ensured sharpness with a wide variety of subject types.

    A built-in stereo microphone can be used to record high-quality sound or, alternatively, a microphone input is integrated into the body design to support the use of an external microphone for enhanced control over audio recordings.

    Nikon D5500 reviews

    D5500 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 52.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Entry-level DSLR After years of using a bridge camera, I decided it was time to move up to DSLR & after careful research, I decided on the D5500 with the 18-55mm lens. So far it's been pretty easy to learn; the articulating touch screen is terrific & I have used it exclusively to change my settings. Admittedly I'm on the lower leg of the learning curve, but I've found that I've been able to capture some great landscape/boat/bridge shots & a few geese. Stopping at the Nikon kiosk at B&H was a smart move on my part because I received a lot of helpful information. And you just cannot beat B&H customer service. All in all I'm very happy with my new Nikon D5500.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from D5500 DSLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens (Black) by Nikon I love this Digital Nikon camera! It was a gift from my incredibly wonderful and generous boyfriend, who is also a professional photographer. This camera is lightweight and the size is perfect for a woman's hands. I am using the camera mainly to take outdoor photographs of landscapes, wildlife, and stills of flora and fauna. Learning all the features of this camera will take some time, but the manual does an excellent job of providing examples and walking me through each step. My boyfriend is helping me with the learning curve as well. I love the touch screen options as it allows for quick adjustments of the ISO, F-stop, and aperture. I would recommend this camera to anyone!!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great multi-purpose camera I work a lot with both photo and video, so this camera is a good fit for me. The image quality is excellent, it is full of useful features, and the compact size makes it easy to carry in a smaller bag. The touch screen is nice, but the swivel action feels fragile, so I plan to keep the screen locked facing out once I get a screen protector. I considered going with the D3300, but chose the D5500 primarily because it records in 1080p. Overall, I am quite happy with the purchase with a few minor exceptions: The shutter action is a bit loud. AF noise is picked up from the onboard mic for video recording, and there is no connection for external mic. The video clip limit can be frustrating.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from All around winner I worked in advertising companies and dealt with graphics intensively, for print and for web. I had a Nikon N90 film camera since 1994. Now my kids are grown. I bought them a Cannon Rebel to start their interests. Couple of years later, they want to be a pro. So I bought this Nikon D5500. It's an all around winner. The focusing is very intelligent, built a lot of photographers' experience into the chip. Video is so stable with the optical stabilizer, no one wants to use traditional video camera any more. Zoom is quick and precise.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sold my Nikon D7000 gear to buy a point and shoot! My situation may be a little different than some others on this forum. My first DSLR was a Nikon D90 and then I moved to a D7000. I had assorted Nikon lenses and equipment and having reached age 70, I decided to gear down and sell all of my Nikon equipment and buy a good point and shoot. After looking into everything that was available in the point n shoot world, I realized that nothing would take the place of of my D7000; that is until the D5500 was introduced. Between its amazingly light weight, articulating touch screen LCD, uniformly positive reviews, light weight collapsing 18-55 vr2 and 55-200vr lenses, as well as an under $ price point, I decided that this could be the answer for my purposes as a perfect all around consumer camera. Bottom line, I love this camera and as it has turned out being everything that I had hoped for and more. Beautiful pictures, simple to use, and easy to haul around; there just isn't any downside to owning this camera. Hope this has helped make someones decision a little easier - you just can't go wrong with B&H or the D5500.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive and easy to use I was an avid outdoor nature and railroad photog back in film days with a couple Minolta bodies and several lenses. It took me a while to switch to digital and I started with a simple Canon point and shoot 12 years ago. Then 5 years ago I stepped up to an Olympus superzoom that I liked but it wasn't flexible enough. This summer I finally took the plunge and bought the Nikon D5500 with both the 18-55 and 55-300 lenses. I've been impressed. It is easy to learn but has enough features that I'm always learning something new about how to use it. It is quite easy to just pick up and start shooting on auto. I also really appreciate the non-flash auto button. Most of my auto photos have come out quite good. I love the articulated touchscreen. Very handy. You'll use it more than you think you will. The camera size is another plus. It is lightweight but solid, and large enough to comfortably hold, but not too big that it weighs you down. Buttons and menus are reasonably intuitive, once you play with it a little, and this is my first Nikon digital experience. I do wish some of the buttons on the rear were slightly larger but that's the price you pay. Battery life has been quite good with 300-400 shots average. It all depends of course on how much you use the screen. The only negative is that it takes a little while to focus if you are using the live view. Not good for fast action. Viewfinder auto focus has been fine. All in all, I'm happy with the camera and very pleased with B&H sales and customer service. I expect the D5500 will give me years of photographic enjoyment.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Had a terrible time with the kit lens and camera image color Has all the bells and whistles, bought this early in its life, kudos to B&H for bearing with me, the kit lens had major problems and I thought the camera white balance was off too. I returned this and went with the D3300 also from B&H and that kit lens stopped working withing 60 days of use. Nikon fixed it and it handles completely diifferent from the other kit lens's (tried 3), its more solid, so what I thought was a camera malfunction turned out to be a kit lens issue. I miss the ability to move the screen, it stays put on the D3300, but for my purposes I didn't really need all the extras this camera comes with.
    Date published: 2015-12-15
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dynamite comes in small packages This camera is absolutely perfect for an entry level camera, with a great easy to use lcd touch screen interface, making either point or shoot or more intermediate setting changes very easy and comfortable. Shooting on the VRII lens that comes with the camera is fast and a pleasure to use. It's compact and sturdy and has a great aperture. Photo quality of both portraits and buildings etc is awesome. The only comment that could be negative, is that if you have very large hands, then handling the camera could be a problem.
