Nikon D5500

Overall rating 8.5/10

The Nikon D5500 is the second camera to feature the monocoque design, and features a flip-out touch LCD and Wi-Fi support.

Amazingly small and light for a DX format camera
Good image quality
Deeper handgrip really does improve handling
Touch Fn is extremely customizable
Not very much better than the previous model
Buffer for continuous shooting seems small
