Digital SLR Camera - Nikon D5500

"The D5500 is the world's smallest, lightest, and slimmest digital SLR camera, and the first Nikon digital SLR camera to be equipped with a touch screen vari-angle LCD monitor that supports intuitive touch operation as well as a built-in Wi-FiŽ function.

The D5500 offers superior image quality and rich reproduction capabilities for excellent detail with an effective pixel count of 24.2-million pixels, a Nikon DX-format CMOS sensor, and the EXPEED 4 image-processing engine."

The touch screen functionality.. is pretty amazing.

And I quote (from Nikon's page);

"Touch and shoot from many angles

High resolution touchscreen Vari-angle LCD

A first for Nikon DSLRs, the D5500 features a touchscreen Vari-angle LCD for exciting new shooting possibilities and easier handling. Flip out the large 3.2-inch display for an interesting new angle, then simply touch where you want to focus and shoot."

Here's a little excerpt from Nikon fanboi, Ken Rockwell, and what he had to say about the camera's touch screen;

"I love my Nikon D5500 because it weighs almost nothing, produces the same big-camera results I get with my full-frame DSLRs like my D810 - even at high ISOs (sorry, Nikon) - and is super fast and easy to use with its new touch screen.

This is the first and only touch screen ever in a Nikon DSLR, and it's a significant step forward in speed and usability. I can set many things with a single tap that used to take several button pushes clicking-around a screen with a touch controller.

Not only does one tap select among numerous options or zoom and scroll playback, I can flick up and down in menus to see all the options. It's a real touch screen like an iPhone; it looks great and works great with the softest touch and instant response.

With its touch screen, my D5500 suddenly makes all my older DSLRs like my D810 feel like 1970s PCs before the mouse was invented. No longer do I need to click up/down/left/right a zillion times to get someplace on the screen; with my D5500, one tap and I'm done."

Well spotted. Myself, I'm not sure I'm converted from what I was looking at -- actually I'm not, as I already got bits for it.. :-)
