Nikon Australia is proud to announce that the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) has honoured the Nikon D5500 with the European Consumer DSLR Camera 2015-2016 Award.

“It is a huge honour for our Nikon D5500 to be recognised as EISA’s Consumer DSLR Camera of the Year,” says James Murray, Director of Sales & Marketing, Nikon Australia. “The D5500 was designed for aspiring photographers seeking creative shooting possibilities in everyday life so it is fantastic to hear that our customers agree and recognise the abilities of the D5500 in helping them to achieve their photographic pursuits.”

Offering an effective pixel count of 24.2-megapixel, the Nikon D5500 is equipped with an EXPEED 4 image-processing engine and a Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor that is built without an optical low-pass filter. Superior image quality and rich power of expression are produced with these notable features of the DSLR. The D5500 is also equipped with a touch screen vari-angle LCD monitor that supports intuitive touch operation, as well as a built-in Wi-Fi function for easy connectivity. Further boosting the distinctiveness of the camera is the adoption of a monocoque structure to help make this slim DSLR the world’s lightest1 with preserving strength and durability.

It also supports a broad range of standard sensitivities, from ISO 100 to 25600. This camera is equipped with all of the features photo hobbyists require for capturing and sharing images, including a vari-angle LCD monitor, which supports shooting from any angle, as well as touch operation and a built-in Wi-Fi function, which enables wireless transfer of images.”
