Nikon D5500: Product Video

Your shots never looked this good
Leave image-blur behind and enjoy the freedom to create vibrant, richly detailed images that command attention. When it comes to getting the shot you want, the D5500’s advanced performance ensures results that never fail to impress. Specifically designed without an optical low-pass filter (OLPF), the camera’s image sensor makes the most of its 24.2-megapixel resolution to render images with incredibly crisp detail - especially when captured with a NIKKOR lens. An ISO range of 100-25,600 allows you to shoot brilliant photos and movies even when the light is scarce, so you no longer need to be constrained by time or place. Nikon’s 39-point autofocus system with nine cross-type sensors in the centre is always on target no matter where your subject is in the frame; and continuous shooting speeds of up to 5 frames-per-second mean fleeting gestures or facial expressions can be snapped at exactly the right moment, even when the action is fast. With Nikon’s EXPEED 4 image processor enabling high-speed operation, advanced noise reduction, and smooth movie recording, you’re free to capture memorable moments with confidence - and then do more with the results.

Follow your intuition
Touchscreen control, vari-angle artistry, and built in Wi-Fi: the D5500 makes it easy to get creative with your photography. Simply flip, tilt, or rotate the large vari-angle monitor to compose shots that reflect your view on the world, then tap the responsive touchscreen to focus and shoot, or adjust settings such as aperture, ISO, and shutter speed. Swipe to scroll through images, or pinch-to-zoom in or out during playback. Find the shots you love, then share them using the built-in Wi-Fi1 function: the impressive quality of your photos will make a lasting impression. You can even take advantage of the camera’s touch control options when shooting through the viewfinder, thanks to the "Touch Fn" function that lets you quickly adjust key settings with a finger swipe. Up to eight settings can be assigned to the "Touch Fn" function, including focus points, AF area modes, aperture, and ISO sensitivity. It’s also worth remembering that the Wi-Fi function makes it possible to control the camera remotely using the connected smart device: considering the vari-angle monitor and the quality of the images, your selfies will be stunning self-portraits that are sure to turn heads.

Creative flexibility
The D5500 is a powerful tool that allows you to make the most of your creative ideas. When the occasion calls for video, the D-Movie function records smooth, finely detailed Full HD video clips at frame rates up to 50p/60p. Offering the kind of superior performance and sharp focus that’s critical for movies, the camera begins recording with a simple press of its dedicated video record button. For the ultimate precision when shooting photos, put your eye to the viewfinder, and you can follow your subjects in real time, without delay or distraction. To make the shooting process even smoother, the D5500 automatically displays the image you’ve just shot on the LCD monitor the moment you take your eye away from the viewfinder. When you want to fine-tune the look of what you’re shooting, Nikon’s second-generation Picture Control makes it easy to take complete control over sharpness, contrast, brightness, hue, and saturation when shooting stills and video. You can choose between seven modes, including the new Flat setting that retains all the details and preserves rich tonal information in both highlights and shadows, making it ideal if you plan to retouch after shooting.

NIKKOR, Speedlight, and system compatibility
The quality of NIKKOR lenses is one of the main advantages of a Nikon D-SLR over every other type of camera, and the D5500 is compatible with the full range of DX-format lenses. From compact zooms that are perfect for general use or travel, to fast prime lenses that enable beautiful bokeh (background blur), and remarkably portable telephoto lenses, there is a lens for every situation. Whichever you choose, you get the precision and flexibility to make the most of the camera's 24.2-megapixel resolution: enjoy capturing photos with vivid colour and striking contrast, or experiment with cinematic effects when shooting movies. In addition to lenses, Nikon Speedlights like the SB-300 open up opportunities to get creative with light, and the SB-500 boasts an onboard high-intensity LED light that’s ideal for movie recording. When the sound of a movie matters as much as the visuals, Nikon’s ME-1 external stereo microphone allows you to record footage with crisp, clear audio.

The Buy Now Pay Later option comprises a 36 month loan following a six month deferral period.

During the six-month deferral period, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is partially repaid within six months, the remaining interest will be adjusted to reflect the new balance. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, however, a £29 early settlement fee is payable in respect of repayments within these six months.

Following the six-month deferral period, Novuna Personal Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 18.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Novuna Personal Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six-month deferral period is due to elapse.
