We have a few videos for you to watch. The first is our review of Nikons D5500 DSLR Body ...
... and the second video is of the entry level Nikon 18-55mm Version II ....
... and lastly there is our Video Review of the Nikon 55-200mm lens.
Like an artist, a photographer’s vision shouldn’t be limited by his tools. Which is why Nikon created a DX-format DSLR that’s more intuitive than ever.
The D5500 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.
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.
First-time D-SLR users will feel right at home with the D5500. The camera’s touch-screen interface makes a range of operations incredibly intuitive to use. During live view with the vari-angle monitor, simply touch anywhere on the screen to focus, then release your finger to shoot.
You can also tap the screen to focus during movie recording, and use it to adjust settings like aperture and shutter speed whether in live view or viewfinder photography. Browsing through menus only takes a flick of a finger, and you can swipe left and right to move between pictures in playback, and pinch in and out to zoom.
If you’re worried about mistakes happening while shooting, there’s an option to activate the touch screen during playback only. And of course, buttons are also available for conventional operation.
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.
Designed to be taken anywhere
Pick up the D5500, and you might be surprised by how small and light it is, while still offering a deep grip that’s stable and comfortable in anyone’s hand.
The body incorporates a carbon-fiber composite material that’s strong and durable, but also remarkably lightweight.
This provides the basis for an innovative monocoque structure, where the exterior covers support the interior, doing away with the bulky, skeletal framework that’s used in most D-SLRs.
The layout of the internal unit has also been redesigned to achieve a slim body with an easy-to-hold grip.
It’s a stylish camera too, with a well-integrated surface, buttons and dials, and high-quality finish. Meanwhile, the supplied EN-EL14a Rechargeable Li-ion Battery gets you approx. 820 still shots per charge in single-frame release mode.
Combined with the new AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-200mm f/4-5.6G ED VR II with retractable lens barrel, the D5500 makes for an amazingly portable camera system, which you’ll want to take out everywhere.
During viewfinder shooting, you can confirm your settings visually by pressing the information button. The D5500’s touch-operated information display comes in two designs (classic and graphic) and three colors (black, blue and white). In the graphic interface, aperture changes are displayed in pictorial form, making it particularly intuitive to use
The i button makes handling even smoother by giving you direct access to your most frequently used settings, without having to use a menu. Options include Picture Control and HDR. During image playback, you can use the i button to jump to the retouch menu or select the images you want to send to your smart devices.
NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II Lens
This Nikon 18-55mm VR II DX is a newer and lighter version of the original18-55mm VR DX of 2007s. Optimized for Nikon's new high-resolution DX-format image sensors, it borrows the ultra-compact retractable lens barrel design from the Nikon 1 system.
Nikon's remarkable Vibration Reduction technology provides crisp, clear images even if your hands are a bit unsteady and shoot at slower shutter speeds in low-light situations. No matter where you are headed, grab the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II and you can be sure you will capture fantastic shots.
Nikon AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm Lens
Nikons legendary prime lens the 55-200. Also consider the 55-300mm lens by Nikon. The Nikon AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED Lens is a neat and very affordable telephoto zoom lens in Nikon's range. The Nikon AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 55-200mm f/4-5.6G IF-ED Lens is commonly found alongside DSLR + Lens kit combinations on the market and if purchased separately can produce some pleasing results for its price range.
