The Nikon D5500 is an F-mount DSLR announced by Nikon on January 5, 2015.[1][2] The successor of the D5300 (there having been no D5400)[3] it is the first Nikon DSLR to feature a touchscreen.[3]

The Nikon D5500 features other improvements over its predecessor Nikon D5300. With a newer carbon-fiber composite body, the Nikon D5500 weighs 60 grams less with a significantly smaller size, has a touchscreen, Wi-Fi but lacks NFC (near field communication) connectivity and GPS functionality.[4]

A review lists the bigger buffer for raw files and the longer battery life.[5][6]

The D5500 was superseded by the D5600 in late 2016.
