Both the D5300 and the D5500 are 24MP DX sensors capable of taking crystal-clear still photos and full HD video. They both feature built-in Wi-fi and GPS and can shoot continuously up to 5 frames per second. While they share many similar features, the newer, lighter D5500 includes some exciting new features. The D5500 is Nikon's first DSLR to offer a 3.2-inch Vari-angle touch operation LCD display, the user to choose their focus point via Touch AF, pinch in to check focus and even activate the shutter with the touch of a fingertip. D5500 users can also take advantage of an expanded wide-ranging ISO spanning 100-25,600, which makes it easy to capture great images, even when available light is scarce. Super Vivid, POP and Photo illustration have been added as Effects Modes, and Picture Controls have been enhanced by adding a “Flat” option. Both cameras are ideal entry-level DSLR for the creative photographer ready to take their storytelling to a new level.
