Nikon D5500

 

Finding a decent entry level DSLR is always challenging, with the sheer number of cameras on offer making it difficult for new buyers to tell which is worthiest of their attention.

Excellent updated handling ; Solid performance, great images ; Fast AF

No GPS ; Conservative upgrades

A great DSLR that's built for beginners

Detailed images ; Monocoque design ; Articulated touchscreen

Relatively cramped viewfinder

A tempting, beginner-friendly DSLR.

It's not a huge upgrade from the D5300, but at last we have a Nikon DSLR with a touchscreen

Touch sensitive screen ; Built in Wi-Fi ; High resolution sensor with no anti-aliasing filter

Expensive compared to D5300 ; Slow focusing in Live View

Nikon has two DSLR series aimed at beginners. The cheaper D3000-series cameras like the D3300 are for outright novices, while the D5000-series cameras, including this D5500, are designed for people still learning but ready for some more advanced...

Nikon D5500 review

 

Ever since I reviewed it in 2013, I've been recommending the Nikon D5300 as my top choice for a general-purpose dSLR suitable for kids-family-and-travel photography. The D5500 is a modest update over the D5300, with some design tweaks and a touchscreen...

The Nikon D5500 delivers excellent photo quality as well as a performance that can keep up with your kids and pets.

The redesigned grip may not be comfortable for people with large hands, and Nikon really needs to update its Wi-Fi app.

Lightweight and compact with everything the family photographer needs, the Nikon D5500 maintains its position as a great general-purpose dSLR.

Nikon D5500 review: A good camera, but lacks consistency

 

Superb sensor, disappointing kit lens, middling controls: the Nikon D5500 is a fine camera but it lacks consistency.

If you can find the camera in a good condition for under £400, I'd be inclined to add it to a shortlist, if not opt, for the 700D instead.

  (Rating Hidden)

The Nikon D5500 is a mid-range digital SLR, taking over from the D5300, which narrowly missed out on a Best Buy last year. Like the D5300 it has a 24Mp sensor and a flip-out vari-angle screen, and with touchscreen controls and wi-fi features it comes...

Goondu Review: Nikon D5500 March 21st, 2015 | by Wilson Wong Imaging 0

 

The colours from the camera are certainly very punchy and with the right lens, the D5500 can be very sharp as well.
