Multi-CAM 4800DX Autofocus Sensor
Benefitting the high image quality is an apt AF system that employs 39 distinct AF points, including nine cross-type sensors, to quickly acquire focus in a range of lighting conditions, from -1 to +19 EV. A unique 3D-tracking mode utilizes the 2,016-pixel RGB sensor, typically reserved for exposure metering, in order to maintain sharp focus on moving subjects. To better suit specific subject matter when working in AF-A or AF-C focus modes, Dynamic-area AF mode allows you to choose from 9, 21, or 39-point arrays for enhanced subject tracking and recognition, even if the subject briefly leaves the frame. Single-point AF, 3D-tracking, and Auto-area AF modes are also available.
When working in live view, for either still or movie shooting, a contrast-based AF system is employed to acquire focus precisely and can function in continuous, full-time servo mode to better suit working with moving subjects. Additionally, four AF-area modes are available when working in live view: Face-priority AF, Wide-area AF, Normal-area AF, and Subject-tracking AF.

Scene Recognition System and Exposure Metering
The intelligent Scene Recognition System with 3D Color Matrix Metering II utilizes a 2016-pixel RGB sensor to evaluate and analyze all aspects within a scene, including brightness, contrast, subject distance, and the scene colors, to quickly determine an accurate exposure and white balance setting to best render the scene at hand. The information gathered is also checked against onboard reference images to ensure consistency from image to image in regard to exposure, white balance, i-TTL flash settings, and subject-tracking AF performance.

- Love my new D5500- September 21, 2017
Although some would say, the size and weight are why the camera is at this price point. For me, that's a double win. I LOVE that it's lighter in weight for wearing while I go hiking. The display on the back of the camera is fabulous, it's intuitive to operate. Though I have used Nikons in the past, but not digital. The telephoto lens is terrific, the standard lens is a little too standard, but I'm working with it until I have the money to replace it with a better lens. Additionally, I purchased a 50mm lens to go with my kit which is what I needed for most of the shots I take for my work. Be sure to purchase a high-quality filter to protect your lenses right away.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent entry-level camera at a great price- August 5, 2017
Got this on sale for a great price. Writing a short review after using it on an overseas trip. Purchased an 18-200 mm lens as I wanted to have a single lens that cover wide angle to telephone range for the trip instead of carrying the two kit lenses. The camera has pretty good low-light capability and has enough modes to meet most shooting situations. Touch screen control works great. Only downside is the Wi-Fi setup on this camera is rather limited. Nonetheless, it is possible to transfer photos to your iPhone using Wi-Fi. The newer 5600 has the newer Nikon bridge link using BT that allows a more seamless transfer. Not sure the extra cost for the newer camera is worth it as the rest of the camera is virtually identical.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Beginner DSLR- June 1, 2017
This is a great camera for starting out with photography beyond a point and shoot. It includes a wide angle zoom and a telephoto zoom to give you a wide range of focal lengths to shoot at right out of the box. The lenses aren't the best but will definitely get you going to figure out what you use and which direction you need to go. At the current price of $600 this is a hard package to pass on. It's much better than the step down,the D3xxx series. I like the moveable screen to be able to flip around and close it facing in to protect it when I throw it in my bag.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
