Nikon D5500 DSLR Camera Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Nikon D5500 comes with a 24.2MP APS-C sized CMOS sensor but no anti-aliasing filter, which enables the camera to capture sharp images. This DSLR can be fully manually controlled and also can be put under automatic control. There are scene modes that help in aiding beginners to catch great images. There are some special effects in the camera that once applied post the capture of images, would enhance the quality of the images. Night vision mode and ISO settings allow for better low light shooting even in dark conditions.

At the back, there is a touch-sensitive screen that can be used to easily tap-focus the subject on the screen in live-view. And with an in-built Wi-Fi, you can transfer photos and videos from this device to a compatible smartphone or a tablet. Photos and videos too can be uploaded onto the social websites. Video recording is done at Full HD resolution at frame rates of 24p, 25p, 50p and 60p. For recording audio, there are built-in stereo mics as well as mic socket for the users that want enhanced audio quality. Overall, Nikon D5500 comes as a great camera belonging to the modern-age.

Design and Build Quality

Compared to Nikon D5300, Nikon D5500 is lighter and thinner and so, provides better grip of the device and the attached lens. The design type is of monocoque type, which gives a well-built and solid feel to the camera. The command dial and mode dial have been given a stylish finish. Above the optical viewfinder, there is an eye-detection sensor that activates the viewfinder as soon as you take your eyes closer to it. This way, you don't abruptly adjust the settings of the camera. To change the settings quickly, you can press the I button that allows for changing the settings that are mostly revisited, all without needing to go into the menus all over again. You cannot assign functions to the 4 way pad. The physical controls are all very small because of the large screen and small body. The info button has been placed at the back whereas in Nikon D5300, it is placed on the roof of the camera. The drive mode button is a bit flushed with the body, so it may be difficult to find it while shooting in darker situations.

Focus and Face Detection

Nikon D5500 offers autofocus, manual, spot, autofocus tracking, and multi-touch autofocus as the focusing modes. Face detection is also present as a feature. The device uses a 39-point autofocus system with a 9 cross-type sensor and the focus area is depicted cleanly inside the optical viewfinder by red sections. It is easier and quicker to use the camera with the optical viewfinder rather than with live-view.

Lens and Image Stabilization

Nikon D5500 comes with a VR II 18mm-55mm kit lens that performs well with a bit of barrel distortion at the wide-angle position of the lens and a bit of pincushion distortion at the telephoto position of the lens. When correction option within the camera is turned on, all distortion defects are taken care of. Other defects such as vignetting, chromatic aberration and purple fringing do not come into much notice until hunted for, that too at the corners, edges or in areas of high-contrast. At times you may notice a drop in sharpness but for most of the part, you would be able to adjust apt sharpness via adjusting the camera settings or processing the RAW images. In fact, macro performance for the closest focus is good but manual focus is always recommended. Image stabilization is also available.

Screen and Menus

The menu system has been neatly carved out on the display panel and each segment has been color coded. Moreover, for anything if you need help, simply press the '?' button. The Retouch menus have a number of options including; Image overlay, RAW processing, Filter effects, Monochrome Red-eye correction, Color balance, Quick retouch, D-Lighting, Distortion control, Color outline, Perspective control, Selective colour, Colour sketch, Miniature effect, Fisheye, Straighten, Resize, Trim and video editing. Coming to the screen, a 3.2-inch wide tilt-screen that can be tilted to almost any odd angle has been incorporated from Nikon D5300. The resolution of the screen is 1037k dots and it is quite bright with impressive viewing angles.


Nikon D5500 comes rated with an impressive shot count of 820 shots as per CIPA/Nikon testing results delivered by EN-EL14a battery with 1230 mAh capacity.

Video Mode

Nikon D5500 sports video recording options with frame rates of 24p, 25p, 50p and 60p. For audio, there are stereo mics and a mic socket. Other audio options are mic settings (manual/auto), wind noise reduction and manual controls on video capture. Focusing can be slow when you use the autofocus and at times the camera can catch focusing noise too.


Nikon D5500 offers a 24.2MP CMOS APS-C sized sensor with pixels width of 6000 units and pixels height of 4000 units. The aspect ratio being 3:2. Coming to the ISO performance, as always images are pretty good between ISO 400 and ISO 100. The quality drops down when you hit ISO 800 and further down at ISO 1600, loss of detail starts becoming noticeable at ISO 3200. At ISO 6400, detail drops down even more but color reproduction can't be complained about. At ISO 25600, noise becomes more noticeable with color shift. Overall though, when compared to its predecessor Nikon D5300, the noise performance is better.
