Like an artist, a photographer’s vision shouldn’t be limited by his tools. Which is why we’ve created a DX-format DSLR that’s more intuitive than ever. The D5500 is thoughtfully designed with an intelligent eye sensor, vast improvements in image review, and a versatile touch screen vari-angle monitor to make it even easier for you to chase your creative pursuits. Its 24.2-megapixel image sensor without an optical low-pass filter (OLPF), is complemented with a powerful EXPEED 4 image-processing engine, all packed in a compact, lightweight body that offers a stronger, more secure grip. Built-in Wi-Fi® allows you to upload your impressive images seamlessly, so you can share your passion for photography with other like-minded enthusiasts.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
