Nikon D5500 sample images


The following images were taken with a Nikon D5500 fitted with a Nikkor DX 18-55mm VR II lens. The D5500 was set to its best quality Large mode, capturing 24 Megapixel images with Fine compression. I have also added some with the AF-S 50mm f1.8G to see what the sensor is capable of.

In each case I used Auto White Balance and the standard Picture Control unless otherwise stated. Image stabilisation was enabled for hand-held shots and disabled for tripod based shots.

All of the images below are JPEGs out-of-camera and are available to download in larger or their original formats for analysis. Click on the desired image to access the files at Flickr.
