Nikon D5500 Review

Nikon D5500 Review


If you are looking for an entry level DSRL the Nikon D5500 is the most worthy choice. The Nikon D5500 highlights a conventional 24.2-megapixel camera sensor. Manufactured from carbon fiber the Nikon D5500 has the DSLR body style and utilizes less volume of material to get the same quality and lighter and smaller than the Nikon 5300. The D5500 has a much more profound grasp than past Nikon cameras, giving you a more agreeable, firmer hold. On the body end of the hold there’s basically significantly more ebb and flow for your fingers to wrap around. The vibe is distinctive, however the look and format are like the D5300. You gain two manual power dials: one around D-cushion on the backplate and one on the top plate. These consolidated with the customary PASM mode dial give a decent adjust of availability and control. The “i” catch has moved from close to the screen to around the back cushion for simpler access.

Nikon D5500 YouTube Performance Review

The Nikon D5500 performance is outstanding versus many other cameras of similar quality.  It supports the typical 1080/60p recording which would normally make for a great image but now additional offers a “flat picture control” which allows for further freedom in post-production for those technically savvy video editors out there. This camera has quite a few advantages versus previous versions of this camera such as a Nikon D5300. Which include a touch screen LCD display and a nearly 30% increase in camera battery life.  It is also slightly lighter weight and more compact which makes it easier to travel with for those who intend on taking the camera on adventures. One major advantage of the Nikon D5500 is its ability to capture stunning spots on a single subject while blurring the background to really make the subject pop. This is becoming more and more common in the filming industry that has a strong focus on selective focus features. It also performs favourably in low lighting situations but like most cameras requires good lighting to really see the full effects of the cameras ability.

Overall this camera is a great choice from most individuals looking to buy a new camera. It is a great middle ground between a DSLR and Point and shot.  Offering the functionality and quality of a typical DSLR while being small and light weight enough to travel with and use on the go. We would recommend this camera specifically to those who are interested in starting making videos who don’t want to commit to just filming on the go or just filming with a stationary camera
