3-inch Vari Angle Monitor
The Nikon D5500 Digital SLR Camera is equipped with a large 3.2-inch TFT LCD touch screen that features a vari-angle design, which allows you to tilt and swivel the monitor to better suit shooting from high or low angles. Its 1037k-dot resolution provides high definition quality for more precise monitoring and image review. The menu navigation has also been simplified from past models, providing a more intuitive system for navigating through different camera functions.
Ultimate Photographic Effects
The Nikon D5500 Digital SLR Camera has 24.2-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor and the EXPEED 4 image processor. The combination of these two technologies enables high resolution imagery with great detail and quality. The power and speed afforded by the image processor also provides high ISO performance up to an expandable range of 100-25600. Noise reduction technologies are employed during use to help render low-light photography with the utmost sharpness and clarity. A 39-point autofocus system, with nine cross-type sensors, is employed to acquire precise focus quickly and easily. The AF system is equally effective with both still and moving subjects and utilizes a unique 3D tracking system to detect and memorize the color of your subject to effectively track its movements. The Scene Recognition System paired with a 2,016-pixel RGB sensor is able to analyse color and brightness information within a scene to automatically determine precise exposure, i-TTL flash, auto white balance, and focus settings. By analysing both color and overall brightness, imagery appears more naturally-rendered and detailed compared to purely measuring brightness values. And the eye-level pentamirror single-lens reflex viewfinder benefits this shooting speed by allowing you to more instinctively pan with your moving subject, whereas shooting in live view will render the shooting nearly silent for more discreet applications. You can also capture full-resolution still images at a continuous rate of 5 fps. This speed affords you the ability to easily track moving subjects or record fast-paced events. You can also capture Full HD video up to 1920 x 1080 with multiple frame rates. The vari-angle LCD monitor is well-suited to video monitoring and provides a natural method for composing scenes and following moving subjects and the HDMI type-C output allows you to connect your camera to HD displays for movie playback. The built-in HDR helps you in capturing images with immense contrast as it extends the native dynamic range capabilities by recording multiple exposures and blending well-controlled shadow and highlight exposures into a single image.
Easy and Efficient Sharing
Its built-in Wi-Fi and Wireless Mobile Utility app provides wireless connectivity to the Nikon D5500 Digital SLR Camera. This app enables you to instantly share imagery from your camera to Android or iOS mobile devices for sharing on imaging sites or through email. The optional GP-1 GPS Unit enables you to geotag images captured with your camera, so you can record latitude, longitude, altitude and time information. The correlation between pictures and maps is supported by a combination of GPS functionality and ViewNX software.
Scene Modes and Special Effects
The Nikon D5500 Digital SLR Camera has 18 scene modes i.e., portrait, landscape, child, sports, close up, night portrait, night landscape, party/indoor, beach/snow, sunset, dusk/dawn, pet portrait, candlelight, blossom, autumn colors, food; and 10 special effects modes i.e., night vision, super vivid, pop, photo illustration, toy camera effect, miniature effect, selective color, silhouette, high key and low key. These modes allow you to further refine the look of your still imagery and the videos in camera.
