Like an artist, a photographer’s vision shouldn’t be limited by his tools. Which is why Nikon have created a DX-format DSLR that’s more intuitive than ever. The Nikon D5500 DSLR Camera is thoughtfully designed with an intelligent eye sensor, vast improvements in image review, and a versatile touch screen vari-angle monitor to make it even easier for you to chase your creative pursuits. Its 24.2-megapixel image sensor without an optical low-pass filter (OLPF), is complemented with a powerful EXPEED 4 image-processing engine, all packed in a compact, lightweight body that offers a stronger, more secure grip. Built-in Wi-Fi® allows you to upload your impressive images seamlessly, so you can share your passion for photography with other like-minded enthusiasts.

Lightweight and compact, the included all-new retractable Nikon AF-P DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR Lens is the perfect companion to your Nikon D3300. An improved optical performance, Vibration Reduction (VR) function and a minimum focus distance of 0.25 m/0.8 ft make this lens the sidekick you can’t do without.

The included Nikon AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II Lens features a retracting design that's small and lightweight - ideal for travel and everyday use. Its versatile zoom range goes from 55mm, which is great for portraits and group shots, up to 200mm telephoto for catching close-ups on the sports field, school events and more. Forget about blurry photos and shaky videos; Vibration Reduction (VR) helps keep your photos sharp and your videos steady. On its own, the AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II is a great multipurpose lens.


Stunning, sharp, detailed photos & videos
To create amazing photos and videos, a digital SLR needs a great lens, a great image sensor and great image processing. The D5500 has all three. It's high-resolution sensor has no optical low-pass filter, freeing it to capture the outstanding details provided by NIKKOR lenses. Enlarge or crop your shots without losing detail or sharpness. EXPEED 4 image processing handles all of that data with ease for clean, sharply defined images in low light up to 25,600 ISO, 1080/60p videos and an extremely wide dynamic range.

High resolution touchscreen Vari-angle LCD
A first for Nikon DSLRs, the D5500 features a touchscreen Vari-angle LCD for exciting new shooting possibilities and 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. A new Fn button gives you one-touch access to important settings like aperture, ISO sensitivity, AF mode and more. During playback, pinch to zoom in and check the details. Easily navigate menu items, set video settings and more, all as familiar as operating a smartphone.

Built-in Wi-Fi and smartphone compatibility

The D5500 quickly transfers your creations to a compatible smartphone or tablet for easy sharing by email, texting or posting online, wherever you are - no hot spot needed. Your smartphone or tablet can even act as an external monitor and remote control for the D5500 - imagine the possibilities!

Small and durable enough to grab and go
There's an old saying: the best camera is the one that's with you. The D5500 is designed to always be with you. It's small and lightweight, so you won't mind taking it along. Its strong and durable (thanks to a monocoque structure featuring long-fibre reinforced thermoplastics), so you won't worry when conditions get rough. Its ergonomic design and deep grip is comfortable and stable in anyone's hand; and easy-to-use controls will have you shooting the pictures you've always wanted in no time.

Focus on the moment
The D5500 delivers outstanding speed and accuracy to help you catch all the moments that matter - smiles, tears, big plays and big hugs. Its 39-point AF system includes nine highly accurate cross-type sensors for enhanced AF accuracy. Freeze moments by shooting up to 5 frames per second, or extend moments with unlimited continuous shooting at shutter speeds between 4 and 30 seconds for stunning star trail images.

Make it cinematic
Cinematic storytelling is at your fingertips with the D5500. Capture Full HD video at a frame rate of 60p with tack-sharp details, vibrant colours and high-fidelity stereo sound. An improved full-time autofocus keeps moving subjects sharp, and advanced Picture Controls like Flat and Clarity make it easier to perfect your movies in post-production.

Enjoy the view
When you’re capturing fast-moving action, especially outdoors, you need a clear view of what’s happening. That’s when the D5500's high-quality optical viewfinder really comes in handy. Put the camera to your eye and enjoy a beautiful, glare-free view through the lens. Take your shot, and the moment you pull the camera away from your eye, the D5500 automatically displays it on the LCD for you.

Let the camera do the work
The D5500 is a highly intelligent camera that makes it easy to take great photos and videos. Nikon's innovative Scene Recognition System uses information from the camera’s 2,016-pixel RGB sensor and image sensor to analyse the brightness and colour of a scene. It then compares your shots to a database of thousands of similar shots, and then optimises the camera settings - white balance, focus tracking, flash information and more - to ensure you get optimal results.

Show off your creativity
Take a series of photos at fixed intervals for up to 9,999 frames that can be combined into jaw-dropping time lapse sequences*. Make a scene look like a miniature model, highlight one colour within a B&W photo, and more. Combine photos of different exposures into one HDR shot. Brighten shadowy areas with Nikon's innovative Active D-Lighting, including a new Subject-based Active D-Lighting that works with moving subjects.

Retouch images
Retouch Menu makes it easy to improve the look of your photos. Soften skin tones, highlight a subject, soften a background, crop, create a colour outline and more - all right at your fingertips!

Make a scene
Select from one of the D5500's 16 Scene Modes - like Nightscape, Portrait, Close-up, Beach and more - and get optimal results in tough situations. Or, get creative and use Scene Modes to add artistic flare to your shots.

Express more
Personalise the mood of your photos and videos with the D5500's seven improved Picture Controls. Add vibrance and colour depth, soften skin tones, explore black & white and more. You can even create and save a custom Picture Control for a characteristic that's all your own.
