Nikon D5500 review


The new Wi-Fi compatible Nikon digital single-lens reflex camera features a touchscreen, a 24-megapixel sensor with no anti-aliasing filter and a 39-point autofocus system.
The D5500 is the direct successor of the D5200 released in 2013. The 24 megapixel resolution, which is still considered high in the amateur category, and the optical filterless structure remained. Therefore, we can expect the same excellent sharpness and detail its predecessor featured. The user interface received a slight facelift, the info button which was placed on the top of D5300 is now at the back, and the handling of the size buttons became more comfortable as well. The rear control dial built into the frame, which was a feature of almost all SLR Nikon cameras until now, is now moved to the top of the D5500.
The new device is also smaller and lighter (the body weighs 420 grams or 14.8 oz), which does not make the handling more difficult since the handle is much deeper. This model is still perfect for the average hand size, however, those who are endowed with large extremities should look one category higher, where the frames are slightly larger (e.g. D7100) and can even be equipped with optional portrait grips.
In conclusion D5500 made a significant step forward with the addition of the LCD display, which makes the whole device more user friendly, while the introduction of the Wi-Fi connection was only a question of time in our era of smart phones. The new camera is better than its predecessor, not so much in image quality but in manageability. Although it has a couple of those inevitable snags such as the lack of live histogram during LiveView mode or the relatively short 10 minute limit for Full HD videos, the Nikon D5500 is still the recommended solution for an upgrade from an older (e.g. D3000 series) model.
