Nikon D5500 with 18-140mm REVIEW:

Nikon’s D5500 is an entry-level DSLR camera that is a relatively tweaked version of the D5300. With some improvements and addition of new software, here is our take on the D5500.


The Nikon D5500 has a 24.2 Megapixel APS-C format sensor; there are 39 AF points on this camera. With 5 fps continuous shooting, one can shoot magnificent stop motion pictures.  As far as the new additions go, the camera has Wi-Fi connectivity that enables image and video transfer to a smart phone using the Nikon Wireless Mobile Utility app. The camera can also be controlled through a shutter wirelessly. Nikon has however excluded the GPS option on this camera. The D5300 had GPS equipped and this might seem a bit of a turnoff from an upgrade point of view. It’s definitely safe to assume that the D5500’s Sensor is the same as the Sony imager, but without an AA filter. However, exceptional results are guaranteed. The camera features a built-in flash as expected, but unsurprisingly its flash cannot be used as a trigger for groups of off-camera flashes.

Design, Display and Handling:

The D5500 uses a new style of DSLR body. The new camera promotes its smaller and lighter design than the D5300. The design changes on this camera aren’t about making things smaller, its completely about comfort and convenience.

The camera weighs around 420 grams (Body only) and measures 124 x 92 x 70 mm. It is significantly smaller and lighter than its predecessor (D5300). The D5500 has a completely new and deep grip that enhances the comfort and gives a firm hold. On the body end of the grip, there is a lot more curvature for the users fingers to wrap around. Rather than the usual polycarbonate or magnesium alloy, Nikon has given the D5500 a carbon fiber reinforced plastic body. This reduces the volume of material and gives the same strength. The feel of this camera is different, but the layout seems similar to that of the D5300. The camera houses two manual control dials: one around D-Pad on the back-plate and one on the top plate. These are combined with the PASM mode dial and provide a great balance of assembly and control.

Another major change is the addition of a touch screen display. The D5500 houses a 3.2-inch LCD Display of 1.04M-dot resolution. The colour and sharpness is pretty accurate on par with any other cameras belonging to similar or high-end category. The camera uses a penta-mirror optical viewfinder rather than the penta-prism kind. However, it is still reasonably clear and quite large too. The touch screen on this camera enables focusing in Live View.


The D 5500 uses the EN-EL14a battery that is found on the D5300 too. The camera churns out another 220 shots per charge due to the omission of built-in GPS module.

18-140mm lens:

Albeit the availability of the basic 18-55mm lens of more common, the 18-140 mm lens makes up for great stills and landscape pictures.

Bottom Line:

The Nikon D5500 is an extended version of the D5300 with a few additional features.
