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.
