[CES 2015] We did make a passing mention on the Nikon D5500 DSLR earlier today, but here are the nitty gritty of it. Basically, the Nikon D5500 holds the distinction of being the very first DSLR from the company that will feature a touch-enabled LCD display, allowing the company to finally catch up with the likes of Canon. I must say that this is a long overdue upgrade, so to speak, and what better place to reveal this “achievement” than on a stage like that of CES?
The Nikon D5500 would sport a 24.2-megapixel CMOS sensor which can also be found in its predecessor, allowing you to capture up to five frames-per-second, while it will also make use of a 39-point autofocus system. Apart from that, the D5500, in a manner that is similar to the D5300, would be able to obtain sharper detail in images.
For those who are interested in picking up the Nikon D5500, you will be able to do so from early next month onward for $899.95 a pop (body only), while those who would like to pick it up alongside Nikon’s standard DX 18-55mm kit lens would have to fork out a wee bit more at $999.95. [Press Release]
