Nikon D5500 Review & Specs
The Nikon D5500 is the company's most monstrous, remarkable and convincing Compact SLR camera with an APS-C sensor. Most notably, I was surprised at how great the image quality was from such a budget-priced camera. Remarkable camera was presented on 2015-01-06. But it's still state-of-the-art, evolving and up-to-date. It fits very nicely in a jacket pocket and can be pulled out in a moments notice for any spur of the moment shots. The popular camera has 84 DxO score, which is a very high and valuable rating. All thanks to remarkable features, good ISO range, wide dynamic range and top-grade 24 megapixels sensor and ISO 25,600.
. Noise only starts to become visible beyond ISO 800 when examining images close-up, and detail is still maintained very well at ISO 3200. At its core is a 24 megapixels APS-C CMOS sensor, which forgoes an optical low-pass filter to deliver the maximum possible detail. Nikon have 286 lenses and to make the most of its capabilities; it's essential that you invest in high-quality lenses. Sony also sells an adapter (Sony LA-EA4) which lets A mount lenses to be used with functionality including AF with E mount cameras. Before buying a Compact SLR camera, check to see if it has the AEB functionality. For example, this camera had the AEB functionality, but some more expensive models do not. White Balance bracketing is particularly useful when there are multiple light sources, and the White Balance reading becomes a compromise between the two or more sources. This is a noteworthy upgrade to the Nikon D5500 easy to use 5.0 fps continuous shooting via the use of Speed Priority Continuous mode, which is very useful for landscapes.
. The new display is a bit dimmer than its predecessor's, so it can be tricky to use in sunlight, even at maximum brightness. While not a big deal for people who are purely photographers, flip screens can make a huge difference for folks who also want to take video. With no viewfinder, no touchscreen control and no LCD tilt facilities, it feels basic. With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. With 39 AF points and 5.0 fps frames-per-second, you won’t be missing any shots of fast-moving action.
. The camera has a 4K video (with 1920 x 1080 resolution and MPEG-4, H.264 video formats), which is a very great choice for video shooters. Microphone input is a must have nowadays and this camera is no exception. The Nikon D5500 has wireless connectivity, so you can instantly transfer detailed photos you have captured to your smartphone. Playback allows for clean HDMI output, which is nice for showing off your images.
The camera is very comfortable and handy, weighing only 420g which is very useful for photographers who travel a lot. Features like being fully weatherproof make this DSLR camera stand out from the competition. The Nikon utilizes contemporary SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards. Small, elementary and you can buy in increasingly large quantity.
. It works great and results in consistently sharp, in-focus photos. From low light indoor environments to the top-grade outdoors in broad daylight, the high-grade Nikon D5500 captures every top-tier, fantastic picture in the best possible light. Almost every important shooting function can be changed using easy-to-access external controls this also extends to the in-camera menu, which is now much simpler to navigate. Simple to use, stunning and modern design makes device operation a thing of beauty.
The is a high-grade choice if you want to shoot eye-popping portraits, family and stunning traveling photos. Overall, we consider this an excellent camera for both newcomers and Compact SLR camera enthusiasts alike. Furthermore, like any product, it has a few faults, but the versatile Nikon D5500 does everything very well and blows away all other cameras on the market.
