Nikon D5500 Review

The Nikon D5000 series has for quite some time been a decent decision for picture takers who needed an exceptionally capable compact DSLR that offer a larger amount of aficionado components than the D3000 arrangement that sits underneath it. Nikon's most recent model - the D5500 - proceeds with that pattern, however the contrasts amongst it and the D5300 that preceded it aren't tremendous. The D5300, presented in the fall of 2013, awed us with its picture quality, flip-out LCD, and list of capabilities. We were less enthused about its menu system and live view execution. 

So what's changed? In short, the D5500 has a smaller and lighter body with an enhanced grasp, a faster processor, touch-enabled LCD, "level" picture control, and implicit Wi-Fi. We'll see later if the company addressed a portion of the issues that we encountered with the D5300. 

To say the D5500 sits in a swarmed field is putting it mildly. On the DSLR side it contends with the Canon EOS Rebel T6i (750D) and Pentax K-S2, and additionally the Fujifilm X-T1, Olympus E-M10, Panasonic DMC-G6, and Sony a6000 mirrorless cameras. 

Nikon D5500 key elements 

24.2MP CMOS sensor with no optical low-pass channel 

Ultra-minimal and lightweight body 

Multi-CAM 4800DX 39-point self-adjust framework

1/4000 sec most extreme screen speed 

3.2", 1.2M spot completely articulating touchscreen LCD show 

1080/60p video with clean yield over HDMI and Flat Picture Control 

Worked in Wi-Fi 

The D5500 seems to utilize the same 24.2MP CMOS sensor as the D5300, however it is fascinating to note that its top ISO setting of 25,600 is no more an 'expansion', similar to the case already. There's keeps on being no optical low-pass filter in front of the sensor, which boosts determination, however moirĂ© might be an undesirable side effect. The D5500 likewise components Nikon's most recent Expeed 4 picture handling motor. 

The outline of the D5500 has improved. It utilizes what is known as a monocoque design which permits the body to be a solitary unit that likewise 'expands solidness without measuring it down', as per Nikon. Surely, the camera is light and minimal - significantly more than the D3300. The grasp is likewise much more profound than on the D5300, making it a mess simpler to clutch. Nikon has additionally added touch usefulness to the officially pleasant 3.2" completely articulating LCD, making menu navigation a bit less dreary. 

In the video division, the D5500 keeps on supporting 1080/60p recording yet now offers a "Level" Picture Control, which takes into account less demanding shading evaluating in after generation. 

Something has disappeared though, and that is the implicit GPS that was included on the D5300. It's probably a sure thing that Nikon is accepting that individuals will utilize their cell phone application to handle geotagging on the D5500. 

Beginning on the left side, we have the receiver, trailed by the hot shoe and stereo mics. The mode dial has the standard manual introduction controls and in addition scene and enhancements modes. A switch for entering live view sits underneath. Right beside the mode dial is what was at one time the back dial. Since the D5500 just has one dial, you'll need to press the introduction comp catch when you need to switch between changing the shade rate and opening. 

Alternate things of note are the force switch/screen discharge combo, committed motion picture recording and introduction pay catches, with the last likewise used to conform the opening when in "M" mode. 

The D5500 has a 3.2" completely articulating LCD with 1.04 million spots. The presentation can pivot a sum of 270 degrees, so it can do selfies (moan) or let you shoot with the camera on a tripod without straining your neck. 

Nikon has added touch usefulness to this LCD, which is one of the real contrasts between the D5500 and its antecedent. What you can do with these touch capacities is entirely standard: center, take a photograph, conform menu settings, and swipe and squeeze your way through photographs in payback mode. 


Overall, the video highlights on the D5500 are fundamentally the same as those of its antecedent. That implies that you can record 60p video at both 1920 x 1080 and 1280 x 720, with time breaking points of 10 and 20 minutes, individually. For a more artistic look, a 1080/24p mode is additionally accessible. While you can set the ISO and shutter speed in motion picture mode (by turning on 'manual movie settings' in the motion picture settings), the gap can't be balanced and the ISO is bolted when recording begins. 

Likewise with the D5300 before it, the D5500 can yield clean 8-bit 4:2:2 video yield over HDMI. 

The new video highlight added to the D5500 is a "Level" Picture Control (profile), which catches a scene with low complexity and high element range. This mode is perfect when you need to conform introduction or shading in after creation (it works for stills, too). We've seen this mode in all Nikon DSLRs discharged following the D810 (and the picture beneath, appeared for delineation, was shot with a D750).
