Nikon D5500 Digital SLR Camera
Finding a decent entry level DSLR is always challenging, with the sheer number of cameras on offer making it difficult for new buyers to tell which is worthiest of their attention. But, those on the hunt for one would do well to check out the Nikon D550. The D5500 features a decent 24.2-megapixel camera sensor, above average handling and solid noise reduction capabilities.
The only serious drawback to the D5500… is that it lacks of a truly killer upgrade to differentiate it from its predecessor, the Nikon D5300. The Nikon D5500 uses a new style of DSLR body for Nikon. It’s smaller and lighter than the D5300, but the design changes aren’t really about miniaturising this camera. At 420g (body only) it’s a significant 60g lighter than the D5300 and at 124 x 97 x 70mm it is slightly smaller too.
However, it’s actually aiming for an all-round different feel. Like the Nikon D750, the D5500 has a much deeper grip than previous Nikon cameras, giving you a more comfortable, firmer hold. On the body end of the grip there’s simply a lot more curvature for your fingers to wrap around. Part of what makes this possible is a new construction style.

The top-tier D7500 features the same 20.9 MP DX-format image sensor and EXPEED 5 image processing as the D500, but the body is similar to the D7200.

A follow-up to the brilliant D3300, Nikon has managed to shave a little of the D3300’s weight off the body for this new iteration, but it’s also boosted its battery life and improved a number of features to make it an even mightier proposition for the novice user.
It’s also launched the camera alongside a redesigned kit lens, one that sports a retractable inner barrel and a more streamlined design that eschews the focusing and Vibration Reduction switches we’re used to seeing.
