What digital camera.32818507
27 February 2015

There’s an awful lot to like about the D5500, with a host of impressive features which belie its entry-level status.

  • +

    Absence of optical low pass filter results in higher detail; Good colour rendition; Fast AF performance

  • -

    Removal of GPS; Lacking in manual control buttons

Camera labs.32824899

Most notably, the D5500 remains the only DSLR in the current Nikon lineup with a fully-articulated screen which can flip and twist in any direction. The much higher-end D750 may have a tilting screen, but it can't twist to face the subject, nor can it angle out for comfortable high or low shooting...

  • +

    Low noise and potentially high resolution., Large, fully-articulated touchscreen., Fairly compact body for a traditional DSLR., Built-in Wifi, but unlike D5300, relies on phone for GPS., 1080p movies at a variety of frame rates.

  • -

    Need to upgrade kit zoom to exploit full resolution., Relatively small viewfinder image size., Basic smartphone app and network open by default., Quiet mode isn't that quiet., Continuous AF in Live View and movies can be noisy.

The Nikon D5500 D-SLR delivers images that are just as good as the D5300 it replaces, and manages to do so in a smaller body.

  • +

    Omits optical low-pass filter. Sharp vari-angle touch display. Solid detail at high ISOs. 5fps continuous shooting. 39-point AF system. Quick startup. 1080p60 video. Integrated Wi-Fi. External mic support.

  • -

    Smaller body means controls are somewhat cramped. Pentamirror viewfinder. No GPS. Will not autofocus with screw-drive lenses. Limited Wi-Fi remote control. Self-timer deactivates after use. Lacks depth of field preview.

Dp review.32823956
2 April 2015

The D5500 is a compact, lightweight, and very competent DSLR. Its image quality and continuous AF is impressive, feature set is broad, and performance is strong. It's not great for continuous Raw shooting and the lack of a second control dial may put off some enthusiasts, but overall the D5500 is...

  • +

    Excellent image quality with wide dynamic range, Compact and light yet well-built body with perfectly designed grip, 3.2" fully articulating LCD ideal for video and tripod use, Touchscreen makes menu navigation and rack focusing easy, Impressive focus tracking despite low resolution metering sensor,...

  • -

    Fine detail in JPEGs can get smudged at higher ISOs, Lacks second control dial found on most of competition, Limited buffer memory affects continuous shooting and bracketing when using Raw, No aperture control or Auto ISO in movie mode, No exposure simulation in live view, Buttons are very small,...

The D5500 not only wants to be a great still image camera, but also a miniature HD video recording studio. Moving images are captured at Full HD 1080p with full-time AF (Auto Focus) engaged.

  • +

    Auto and Program modes are accurate and provide outstanding image quality, Dedicated Video Capture Button is always ready to record, Nikon F mount allows you to use the huge selection of lenses, Excellent overall image quality at all ISO levels, 921k dot LCD provides great color and a ton of detail,...

  • -

    Only one command dial slows down your adjustments when shooting manually, but keeps the body simple, Priced slightly higher than most entry-level dSLRs, but worth the extra cost

30 March 2015

The Nikon D5500 is a good entry-level option for those looking to buy their first DSLR. It’s a minor upgrade to the D5300, so it’s nothing to jump up and down about for existing Nikon owners; outside of the touchscreen LCD and expanded native ISO range, there’s no need for owners of the older model...

The Nikon D5500 is an excellent DSLR in the budget segment. While it is an incremental upgrade over the Nikon D5300, there are different customer groups to whom the D5500 will make sense. For entry-level photographers looking for more lenses, the D5300 will make sense.

  • +

    Light, compact unit, Fast autofocus, Fluid touchscreen interface, Excellent dynamic range, Massive array of compatible lenses, Wireless connectivity

  • -

    Light body not ideal for heavy lenses, No antialiasing filter, No in-built GPS

15 April 2015

The measure of a camera is not its cost or features or even the size of its sensor. A camera is measured by the images it helps you capture and the depth, scope, and quality of these images. The Nikon D5500 let me capture some unusual moments. But is it the camera I’ve been looking for?

The Nikon D5500 raises the bar in Nikon's mid-level DSLR line-up, blending a smaller form factor with improved image quality, excellent dynamic range and improved performance in many areas.

  • +

    Amazingly lightweight and compact for a DSLR, Great image quality for its class, Excellent dynamic range, Excellent high ISO performance for its class, Very good battery life, 39-point AF system with 9 cross-type sensors, Fast start-up and shot-to-shot speeds, Decent 5 fps burst speed (when shooting...

  • -

    Auto and Incandescent white balance settings too warm in tungsten lighting, Shallow buffers when shooting RAW, Burst mode slows down with 14-bit RAW files, Built-in HDR mode only uses 2 exposures and has difficulty with in-camera stitching, No AA filter means it's susceptible to aliasing artifacts,...

Nikon has been introducing DSLRs at a fairly steady pace, releasing the D810, then the D750 and now the D5500. The D5500 is the mid-range model in the lineup and is different from the lot, simply because the camera comes with a fully articulating touchscreen, which also necessitates having a button...

  • +

    Amazingly small; very well designed grip; touchscreen features are welcome; feature-packed.

  • -

    Viewfinder image could be larger; battery life is good but not great.

The one thing I wish was available are much clearer instructions, especially or the flash I received with this bundle. I'm lost and there is nothing online that can help me figure this out.

  • +

    Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD

    Noisy At High ISO

11 November 2015

it has an excellent price and is more flexible with a great touch screen. It takes really smooth professionals photos and makes a big difference compared to other normal cameras... Highly recommended.

  • +

    Very good quality camera, touch screen, wifi photo transfer, great price!

  • -

    Like any other SLR camera, for different scenarios, you need other lenses...but this is normal for a pro.

19 December 2015

I am a beginner in DSLR and I feel this is the best choice I made to start my photography passion. This camera looks very good in red color. Its LCD touch, wifi capability to transfer and click photos through smartphone is an awesome feature.

24 August 2015

Auto point and shoot mode works well. Changing to aperture or shutter speed mode takes practice. Have 18-140 zoom, very versatile. Picture formats JPEG or raw for added definition.

  • +

    Very light, easy to handle. Using thru lens viewfinder or digital display are great and serve different purposes. Lots of options including special effects.

  • -

    Need to download software to decode the Nikon raw format. Nikon provides URL, plus several 3rd party suppliers.

I have been a Nikon camera person for almost 40 years and I absolutely love these cameras. However, going from a D800 to a D5500 is like going so far backwards that I am really struggling to master the "baby" camera.

  • +

    I love the 18-140mm lens that came with the D5500 Black DSLR camera. I also love the 55-300mm zoom lens that came with the bundle.

  • -

    The actual camera body is very light weight. I am having a slightly hard time getting used to it.

22 April 2015

When I first got the camera and put the battery on for its initial charge I didn't get much life out of it the first time. I was worried I had a bad battery out of the box but after the second charge it is lasting significantly longer. The first charge lasted around 175 shots.

  • +

    I was looking for a camera body to invest in as an initial foray into photography. I had used point and shoots before but was never satisfied with the noise they often had. The Nikon D5500 was as pricey as I was looking to go for something to learn on and I have to say that I'm not disappointed I...

  • -

    I haven't found any real cons just yet, I've only logged 20 hours on it in the month or so I've had it. My only real dislike thus far is the button placement. On this body the function button is on the left side near the flash button.

27 July 2015

Love this camera. Many features, user friendly. Touch screen is very convenient. Light enough to carry for hours. Over the years, I owned many Nikons, film and digital. This camera has it all at an affordable price. Feels good in my hand.

25 January 2016

Kit is as listed. The only comment I have is my preference would be to include a spare battery and larger SD card but then the price would have to be higher.

16 March 2015

It was small and work great. I love it
