Nikon D5500 Review

The Nikon D5500 is a brand new compact SLR body launched by Nikon and for photography enthusiasts, it seems to be a pretty serious contender to other recently unveiled devices. Although it’s still considered an entry-level device, it packs a lot of features under the hood and it’s a good successor of the D5300 body. Probably the most expected feature of the D5500 is the newly-introduced touchscreen display. The Vari-angle LCD screen provides increased support when it comes to visualizing the photos you are about to take or the ones you’ve already shot. Moreover, due to the touchscreen nature of the screen, many settings of the camera are just a couple of touches away. In a nutshell, the screen of the camera has been designed to provide a smartphone-like accessibility level to its users.



Speaking of smartphones, the Nikon D5500 is able to communicate with them thanks to the built-in Wi-Fi. If you are in the need of sending a couple of photos through email and there’s no other alternative, it’s quite easy to connect the two devices and transfer the desired images to the phone. Moreover, the same connection feature provides support for remote controlling the camera.



Many cameras nowadays provide dual support for multimedia content so that videos are a possibility, as well. The Nikon D5500 is not an exception from the rule, and Full HD videos are on the menu for those interested. The 60p frame rate should be more than enough to capture just about anything important for a user. There are a series of Picture Control options that make it easier to edit the movies during the post-production stage.



Going a bit more in-depth regarding the features of the camera will allow you to discover that the sensor of the D5500 has a staggering 24MP value and it can take shots of up to 6000x4000 pixels in size. ISO values are not neglected, either, so that a wide range is available, starting with 100 and going all the way to 256000. The shutter can be kept open for as much as 30 seconds and as short as 1/4000 seconds, so that nothing can get away.



The new Nikon D5500 lives up to its compact name and category, given the fact it’s one of the most compact cameras ever designed by Nikon, having a weight of just 420g and small dimensions overall, as well. The grip has been improved, compared to the D5300 model. The material is the same, but the grip has been deepened for increased hand support.



Although the D5500 comes with a list of improvements over the previous design of the series, it also has a downside. The GPS receiver has been discarded so geotagging images is not a possibility, at least not in an automatic mode. The HDMI connector was not removed. Instead, it was moved at the bottom of the camera, which is a rather peculiar position, especially when it comes to using the camera with a cable plugged in.

  • The Good :
    Compact body, Touchscreen LCD, Wi-Fi connectivity, Increased battery life
  • The Bad :
    No GPS feature, Difficult to avoid the touchscreen when using the ViewFinder
Our score:
4 / 5
