Product Features in Detail
Follow your creative instincts with a new world of intuitive features
A first for Nikon DSLRs, the D5500 features a touch screen vari-angle LCD monitor for limitless fun and creative shooting possibilities with easier handling. Flip out the large 3.2-inch display for an interesting new angle, then simply touch where you want to focus and shoot. The intuitive eye sensor switches off the information display when you bring the viewfinder to your eye and a new Touch Function gives you one-touch easy access to autofocus-area and aperture settings. With 6 information display designs to choose from, you can finally customise the ideal look on your monitor.
Let your creativity shine through higher image quality
At 24.2 megapixels without an optical low-pass filter (OLPF), the D5500 captures remarkably beautiful images. Its extensive dynamic range (ISO 100 to 25600) and low noise even at high ISO delivers rich gradation and sharp colour rendering, shot after shot. This is perfectly accompanied by higher quality, resolution, and speed from an EXPEED 4 image-processing engine to capture more of what you see in full glory.
Capture your imagination, now with pin-point precision
Tracking your subject and keeping it at the centre of attention is now a breeze with a superior 39-point autofocus (AF) system. The speed of contrast-detect AF has also been vastly improved to achieve quicker focusing. Capturing your subject at great speeds is also easily achieved by shooting at an impressive 5 frames per second*1.
Power in the camera, comfort in your hands
As the world’s smallest and lightest Nikon DX-format camera*2, the D5500 measures just 124mm (width) x 97mm (height) x 70mm (depth) and weighs only 420g. It’s strengthened with a carbon fiber composite material*3 that’s as strong as metal. The revolutionary monocoque structure lightens the body of the camera, without adding unnecessary weight to the device. What makes it even easier to use is an ergonomic design that allows for better grip, giving you greater comfort in your hands. Sturdy yet stylish, the D5500 is available in classic black and chic red.
Bring your artistic vision to life
A first for DX-format cameras, the D5500 provides Vignette Control that efficiently compensates peripheral light fall-off for well-balanced brightness. Let your imagination lead the way with Special Effects, an exclusive mode that enables you to intensify the beauty of your image through colour, lighting and artistic styles. You can also adjust details such as White Balance and Picture Control during live view, right from your monitor.
Share more, faster
Upload images to your social networks seamlessly by connecting the D5500’s built-in Wi-Fi® to your smart device. Simply download the free Wireless Mobile Utility app on your iOS or Android device*4 to transfer your images. You can also pre-select your images that get transferred automatically once you connect to Wi-Fi®. While you’re connected, you can continue to shoot, view, and playback. These connectivity capabilities also offer remote shooting functions that perfectly complement the vari-angle monitor to shoot self-portraits or scenic views while travelling.
A moving moment in every frame
Record high quality videos with smoother motion and richer colours with the D5500, which shoots in Full HD 60p format. The high performance image-processing engine minimises jaggies and moiré for sharper, crisper videos. With the D5500, memorable moments can now be relived in truly immersive, extraordinarily high definition films.
Enhance your camera and expand your creative opportunities
Complement your D5500 experience with an expanding line-up of compatible lenses such as the AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II telephoto zoom lens and a wide range of accessories to take your vision to the next level.
First-time D-SLR users will feel right at home with the D5500. The camera’s touch-screen interface makes a range of operations incredibly intuitive to use. During live view with the vari-angle monitor, simply touch anywhere on the screen to focus, then release your finger to shoot*. You can also tap the screen to focus during movie recording, and use it to adjust settings like aperture and shutter speed whether in live view or viewfinder photography. Browsing through menus only takes a flick of a finger, and you can swipe left and right to move between pictures in playback, and pinch in and out to zoom.
If you’re worried about mistakes happening while shooting, there’s an option to activate the touch screen during playback only. And of course, buttons are also available for conventional operation.
Share and shoot via built-in Wi-Fi/Wireless Mobile Utility/NIKON IMAGE SPACE
Why keep amazing, D-SLR-quality pictures to yourself? Using built-in Wi-Fi, it’s easy to transfer images from the D5500 to smart devices installed with Wireless Mobile Utility*. You can then share them on social media or online services like NIKON IMAGE SPACE, which gives Nikon camera owners 20 GB of storage for free.
It’s also possible to shoot remotely with your smart device, allowing you to release the shutter after checking the image on the device’s screen – perfect for self-portraits.
Slim, lightweight, carbon-fiber monocoque body with deep grip/Sophisticated exterior
Pick up the D5500, and you might be surprised by how small and light it is, while still offering a deep grip that’s stable and comfortable in anyone’s hand.
The body incorporates a carbon-fiber composite material that’s strong and durable, but also remarkably lightweight. This provides the basis for an innovative monocoque structure, where the exterior covers support the interior, doing away with the bulky, skeletal framework that’s used in most D-SLRs. The layout of the internal unit has also been redesigned to achieve a slim body with an easy-to-hold grip.
It’s a stylish camera too, with a well-integrated surface, buttons and dials, and high-quality finish. Meanwhile, the supplied EN-EL14a Rechargeable Li-ion Battery gets you approx. 820 still shots per charge* in single-frame release mode. Combined with the new AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II with retractable lens barrel, the D5500 makes for an amazingly portable camera system, which you’ll want to take out everywhere.
GP-1/GP-1A GPS Unit (optional)
Add location data to your pictures to keep a more detailed record of your activities. Attaching the optional GP-1/GP-1A GPS Unit to the D5500 enables information such as latitude, longitude, altitude and UTC (Universal Coordinated Time) to be stored as Exif data in the pictures. These can then be pinpointed on the map incorporated in ViewNX 2* and the NIKON IMAGE SPACE image-sharing service, or with other digital mapping software or online services.
During viewfinder shooting, you can confirm your settings visually by pressing the information button. The D5500’s touch-operated information display comes in two designs (classic and graphic) and three colors (black, blue and white). In the graphic interface, aperture changes are displayed in pictorial form, making it particularly intuitive to use.
The i button makes handling even smoother by giving you direct access to your most frequently used settings, without having to use a menu. Options include Picture Control and HDR. During image playback, you can use the i button to jump to the retouch menu or select the images you want to send to your smart devices.
