Nikon India, the 100% subsidiary of Nikon Corporation Tokyo, leader in imaging technology, is proud to introduce the Nikon D5500, a 24.2-megapixel DX-format camera designed for aspiring photographers seeking to challenge convention by creating images in new and exciting ways. As the world’s smallest, lightest*1and slimmest D-SLR, the D5500 with wireless connectivity delivers intuitive operations to complement the inspiration of a great shot, be it still images or videos. With the combination of a vari-angle LCD monitor with touch screen control, intelligent eye-sensor, and optimized image review, the D-SLR fits comfortably as a trusty companion for capturing those ‘eureka’ moments of photography.
Photographers will be excited with the results achieved by the D5500’s image sensor that is designed without an optical low-pass filter (OLPF), and Nikon’s EXPEED 4 image-processing engine that provides a compelling advantage to capturing remarkably sharp and vivid details. Delivering photographic freedom, the DX-format camera supports a wide range of ISO and includes an enhanced Picture Control system, 39-point autofocus (AF), and support for Full HD video recording in 60p format. In addition, as a first in Nikon D-SLR cameras, the eye-sensor automatically turns off the monitor screen display when using the viewfinder and a ‘Touch Fn’ allows for easy adjustments of operational settings.
