Nikon D5500 with 18-55mm and 55-200mm REVIEW:

The D5500 is an entry-level DSLR from Nikon. Claimed to be an upgraded version of the former D5300, this camera might open a new portal into the current trend.


Built with a 24.2 Megapixel APS-C format sensor; the camera has 39 AF points. There is also 5fps continuous shooting available on this camera. Additionally, Nikon has added 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.

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.

18-55 and 55-200mm lens:

The 18-55 mm lens is a standard add-on lens that comes with the camera. However, should you choose to experiment with telephoto and speedy photography, the 55-200 mm lens kit makes a great start. It gives the photographer the ability to get a hold of the essentials of telephoto and various other styles of photography.

Bottom Line:

The D5500 is a good entry-level DSLR from Nikon. It makes a great upgrade from a relatively old DSLR, but not a sensible upgrade from the D5300.
