Product Overview

Nikon D5500 is an affordable DSLR camera in the Nikon F-mount system. Introduced by Nikon in 2015, it comes with an APS-C sensor with 24 MP (6000 x 4000) resolution.
The camera has an excellent battery life, and you may just get away without a second battery. The Nikon D5500's 5.0 fps burst rate limits its use for certain types of photography, but it is hardly something that most photographers should worry about.
The Nikon D5500 comes with a fully articulated touch display and 39 autofocus points.
