Nikon D5500 DSLR Camera Body Only Details


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

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.

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. ** Wireless transfer of videos is only available on the Android OS ** 

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

The Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO Lens for Nikon is a wide-angle to telephoto zoom lens for Nikon F-mount APS-C cameras that features a versatile 35mm equivalent focal length of 24-450mm. This provides users with an extremely wide-angle and super telephoto lens in one convenient package. Also, it has an aperture range from f/3.5-6.3 to f/22-40 across the zoom range. 

The 16-300mm is also capable of decent macro capabilities with a reproduction ratio of 1:2.9 when zoomed in to 300mm. This is due to a minimum focus distance of 15.3". Also, for excellent image quality, numerous special glass elements are used in the lens design. There are one Hybrid Aspherical element, three Molded-Glass elements, two Low Dispersion elements, one Extra Refractive Index element, and one Ultra-Extra Refractive Index element. 

For general use, there is a Piezo Drive autofocus system which is powered by a fast and quiet standing-wave ultrasonic motor. This allows you to quickly achieve focus for sharp images. There is also Vibration Compensation which provides optical image stabilization that reduces camera shake at slow shutter speeds and longer focal lengths. And, included with the lens are a flower-shaped lens hood as well as front and rear lens caps.
