Nikon D5500 Hong Kong – Your Trustworthy Photography Companion
Nikon has emerged as a prominent name worldwide when it comes to DSLR cameras. The DSLR cameras offered by Nikon Hong Kong is available in various price ranges to suit different budgets. One of the budget models that have become talk of the town is Nikon D5500. Despite being an entry-level model, the D5500 offers commendable features that make it a value-for-money purchase.
Design and Handling
Out of the box, the camera comes with a 24.2-megapixel 18 - 55mm CMOS sensor. For the D5500, Nikon decided to opt for a new style of DSLR body which makes it smaller and lighter than its predecessor. This makes the camera suitable to be brought along for travels, especially trips that involve a lot of walking around as its lightweight and compact size means that the camera will not be too burdensome to be brought around. The D5500 also has a much deeper grip than previous Nikon models, giving users a more comfortable and firmer hold of the camera. The body end of the grip is curvier to allow your fingers to wrap around more comfortably.
The D5500 also comes with a responsive touchscreen display which enhances the user experience. Apart from using it for focusing in Live View, the touch display can also be used as an alternative manual control surface whilst shooting with the viewfinder. The screen is attached to a vari-angle hinge for you to turn the screen to an angle that suits you best. This will come in handy while taking shots at odd angles.
The screen itself is a 3.2-inch LCD display with 1.04M-dot resolution. Amateur and newbie beginners will not have any complaints about the display as it provides accurate colours and sufficient sharpness for regular usage.
Ensuring that the D5500 has a smooth performance is an Expeed 4 processor which offers burst performance of 5fps. This provides the camera with enough speed to take action shots despite not being a sport- or action-centric DSLR, an impressive feat for an entry-level DSLR.
In terms of the AF performance, the Nikon D5500 is equipped with the Multi-CAM 4800DX module which gives 39AF points, nine cross-type. This translates to speedy and accurate focusing and impressive AF performance even in low-light conditions with the help of the AF light.
The Nikon D5500 also has Wi-Fi support which enables users to transfer images from the camera directly to your smartphone or other mobile devices via the Nikon Wireless Mobile Utility app. This also means that you can control the shutter wirelessly, providing users with more versatility when using the camera.
