  • While video pros may pass on the D5500 due to its lack of aperture control and Auto ISO, the D5500 still outputs pleasant-looking video that's low in noise and free of artifacts. It supports Full HD at both 24p and 60p, and now has the same 'Flat' Picture Control as other recently announced Nikon cameras that allows for easier color gradation in post. If you want to output video to an external recorder, the D5500 can do so over HDMI.

  • I cant find any information about the video bitrate of the d5500. Is this available somewhere?

  • Good Lord, this thing is clean at high ISO. This 25600 iso clip looks insanely clean. Granted its moderately bright in the scene, but still. Come a long way.

    The Nikon D5500 raises the bar in Nikon's mid-level DSLR line-up, blending a smaller form factor with improved image quality, excellent dynamic range and improved performance in many areas. It ranks among the elite cameras for low light and high ISO performance in this class and price range, making it an intriguing option for shooters wanting to take their game to the next level, and also for a higher-end Nikon shooter wanting a capable back-up in their bag that they can depend on

  • Hi guys, would like to ask also here about the crop factor in video mode.

    On 7200's OP i can read: Very bad video options - up to 1080p30 only, 1080p60 is available in 1.3x crop mode only (m43 sensor size)

    Is it the same for D5500? Is there a crop factor for video higher than simple "1,5x"? Thanks a lot

  • There's no crop in in any 1080p mode in D5500.

  • Shooting video with the D5500 is as easy the press of a button, as long as you are already in Live View mode. Just pressing the dedicated video recording button will start the recording, no matter what shooting mode the camera is currently in. All of the video settings are located in the record menu under the video tab, letting you setup the video settings ahead of time, so they are always ready. Our sample video plays smoothly on all medias, showing us great video quality, even in less than perfect lighting conditions. Audio with the built-in microphone leaves plenty to be desired, capturing all of the sounds closest to the camera. Fortunately, the camera has an audio input that works with an external microphone. This should greatly increase the overall audio quality. If you plan on shooting a lot of video with the D5500, this would be an excellent accessory to consider.

  • Interesting with the flat profile.

  • Nikon D5500 Firmware update v1.01

    • AF-P DX NIKKOR 18–55mm f/3.5–5.6G VR and AF-P DX NIKKOR 18–55mm f/3.5–5.6G lenses are now supported. Vibration reduction can be enabled or disabled using the new Optical VR option in the photo SHOOTING MENU, which is displayed when an AF-P DX NIKKOR 18–55mm f/3.5–5.6G VR lens is attached. The CUSTOM SETTING MENU now contains an a5 Manual focus ring in AF mode option that can be enabled or disabled when an AF-P DX NIKKOR 18–55mm f/3.5–5.6G VR or AF-P DX NIKKOR 18–55mm f/3.5–5.6G is attached.
    • The following issues have been addressed:
      • Noise would occur at four-second intervals in audio output to external recorders connected via HDMI in movie live view.
      • Choosing negative values for Exposure compensation in the RETOUCH MENU > NEF (RAW) processing display did not have the desired effect.
      • Selecting ON for Exposure smoothing during interval timer photography would result in all shots after the first being overexposed.

  • New v1.02 firmware

    • The camera would stop responding if the multi selector was pressed right with Add items > CUSTOM SETTING MENU > c Timers/AE lock selected in MY MENU.
    • The shutter would sometimes not be released in response to live view touch shutter controls if autofocus was used with an SB-800 flash unit attached.
    • Optimal exposure would sometimes not be achieved in photographs taken during live view with lenses that support both autofocus and electronic aperture control (type E lenses).
    • If image review was enabled during viewfinder photography, the camera would sometimes display shooting information in place of the most recent picture when the user removed their eye from the viewfinder after shooting.
    • The camera would sometimes fail to store the option selected for a Autofocus > a3 Built-in AF-assist illuminator in the CUSTOM SETTING MENU after the mode dial was rotated to another setting.
