The Nikon D5500
An excellent and compact rangefinder camera for professional and amateur users alike, the Nikon D5500 has several advanced features that make it an attractive option to get on a black Friday deal. With the ability to take high resolution, digital photos, the D5500 is a valuable tool to have in almost any professional photographer’s kit. However, what features are there on the camera which may appeal to you?
The main camera lens is an APS-C lens, which means it is designed to be used with the latest, highest quality lenses. A smaller, lighter, and slimmer than the D5300’s D-mount lens. With the D5500, the camera’s lens also offers a maximum aperture of f/4 and continuous shooting up to nine frames per second. This is useful for many professionals, who need a high-quality lens but are not willing to spend a fortune on it. Also, as with other interchangeable lens cameras, the D5500 can use lenses designed specifically for it.
The camera’s LCD screen is one of the most advanced, with a large, easy to view an image that is easy to read even in bright light. The controls on the camera are all touching sensitive and comfortable to operate; and the camera comes with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery which gives it long battery life, so it can be carried around for long periods. If there are any concerns about the level of grip available on the camera, the D5500 is also equipped with thumb and index finger-grip controls. This is far better than the standard grip and more ergonomic than the old style, which meant the camera was often hard to hold and used for several hours.
This flash is also very versatile, with the ability to adjust the amount of light by varying the settings on the flash head and by switching it between different modes. The ability to preview your photos before printing them has also led to increased image quality. Instead of printing your photos on paper, you can print directly onto a computer monitor, which has been made possible by the inclusion of the optional memory card storage card.
