    Default [ortega] Hands on the Nikon D5500



    In Nikon marketing speak - Photographic excellence made smarter and easier
    Infinite creativity is at the fingertips with Nikons new 24.2-megapixel DSLR featuring a variangle
    touch screen monitor and instant sharing capability with wireless connectivity.

    Touted as the World's smallest, lightest and slimmest DSLR

    The 24.2 MP APS-C sensor is designed without the optical low-pass filter, like the Nikon D800E for remarkably sharper images. And coupled with the Nikon EXPEED 4 image processor from the bigger brothers.
