Nikon's introduces the incredibly small and light 35mm SLR the N55!

Developed with the amateur photographers and first-time SLR users in mind, the N55 combines simple design and functionality with superior SLR image quality and performance, resulting in an easy-to-operate, feature-packed SLR camera for anyone who wants to easily take high-quality pictures. With the included Nikkor 28-80 G series autofocus zoom lens provides superior performance in a classic Nikon design.

The N55 incorporates a host of intelligent features including a razor-sharp autofocus system, a wide range of exposure modes, advanced light metering systems with 3D matrix metering, and the added convenience of an automatic built-in speedlight.

Within the N55 you'll find an array of exposure options designed for ease and creative control. Auto mode setting removes guesswork from picture taking. Five Vari-Program modes tailored to specific scenes and subjects, such as portrait, landscape, close-up, sports continuous and night portrait. The N55 features Nikon's 5-segment 3D Matrix Metering supported by Nikon's on-board database of over 30,000 stored images in all Auto Modes ensure proper exposures. A Large LCD panel with easy-to-read characters simplifies mode selection and monitoring. Automatic functions are also balanced with a complete selection of exposure modes including Auto-Multi Program, Shutter-Priority Auto, Aperture-Priority Auto and Manual settings deliver precise exposure control, expanding creative potential.

The Nikon N55 delivers a superb selection of some of Nikon's best known and most popular features, all in a compact, intuitively designed camera that offers point-and-shoot simplicity and produces stunning, SLR quality images.

Intelligent Design For Easy Operation
The N55's design enables amateur photographers and first time SLR users to effortlessly produce sophisticated photographic effects. The AUTO mode gives users point-and-shoot simplicity while producing SLR quality images. The camera features Vari-Program modes that fine-tune the camera's performance for specific scenes and subjects, and a large LCD panel with easy-to-read characters simplifies mode selection and monitoring. The built-in speedlight pops up automatically when shooting in low light conditions or photographing backlit subjects, ensuring a consistent and accurate exposure.

Three-Area Autofocus System
Equipped with a balance of accuracy, speed and control, the N55's new Three-Area Autofocus system provides versatile control of focusing in various situations. The camera automatically detects whether a subject is stationary or moving, based on directional information, and activates Focus Tracking with Nikon's advanced Lock-On(TM) technology to keep a fast-moving subject in continuous focus. Its three autofocus area sensors give users wide, horizontal coverage and allow for quick and accurate focusing of fast-moving subjects, as well as off-center compositions and wide scenic landscapes.

3D Matrix Metering
The N55 inherits Nikon's sophisticated 3D Matrix metering system and ensures accurate exposures under diverse situations. To accurately determine the ideal exposure, the N55 uses three types of data -- scene brightness, scene contrast and subject distance. After analyzing this data, the camera chooses the precise combination of shutter speed and aperture to achieve a balanced exposure. Additionally, the camera also offers Five-Segment Matrix Metering and Center Partial Metering for greater manual control in specific situations.

Matrix Balanced Fill-Flash
The N55 features a compact, powerful built-in speedlight that works seamlessly with the camera's exposure control and metering system. It delivers precise amounts of light, based on the subject's distance from the camera and the overall scene brightness and contrast, to attain an accurate exposure. The built-in speedlight pops up automatically when shooting in low light conditions and is especially useful when photographing backlit subjects. The flash is automatically blended with the scene's natural light creating vivid, balanced exposures. The Nikon N55's F Lens Mount makes it compatible with more than 40 superior AF Nikkor lenses, opening the door for up-and-coming photographers and first-time SLR users to an abundance of creative options and possibilities.

Comments about Nikon N55 SLR Camera - w/ Nikkor 28-80mm G Zoom Lens:

I bought this camera for a photography class i was taking at school and so far it has produced so incredible pictures. You just need to make sure it is focused and you aren't shaking otherwise you get a lot of blur. For someone who is starting out with 35mm, it's a great buy, not to mention once you get more advanced you'll be able to use more of it's features.

Comments about Nikon N55 SLR Camera - w/ Nikkor 28-80mm G Zoom Lens:

I have had great performance out of this camera! I do alot of black and white, and this model makes the best i have ever seen. I also use mine for snap shots of the kids. My now 3 year old would always run from a camera and I have made the most beautiful pic of him w/ this camera. It's really fast enough to get the shot. I like that the settings stay set until you reset them or change them. There's no having to "get it ready". It has so many uses!

Comments about Nikon N55 SLR Camera - w/ Nikkor 28-80mm G Zoom Lens:

As a follow-up to my initial, one star rating of this item - Nikon customer has stepped up to the plate and came through on this. After having my N55 sent back 4 times for repair, they have replaced it with a brand new one. You can't get any better customer support than that. Nikon will keep me as a customer. Five stars for Nikon standing by their product!

Trouble - Do not Buy.
By flyer6Verified Reviewer from West Monroe, Louisiana on 12/12/2006
Pros:
Comfortable Design, Fast Film Loading, Fingertip Controls
Cons:
Auto focus advisory
Best Uses:
Great black whites, Home, Travel

Comments about Nikon N55 SLR Camera - w/ Nikkor 28-80mm G Zoom Lens:

Proceed with caution.

Nikon has a service advisory (recall) on the auto focus of this camera. My camera is back at the Nikon service center for the 4th time for repair under this advisory.

I hated to give it such a poor review because this camera was purchased for our family by a very kind and generous gentleman but buyers need to be aware of the service advisory.

Other than that, it takes the best black and white photos that I've ever seen.
