Reasons For

Nikon D5500 Nikon D90
19 Reasons For
11.3MP Higher Megapixels
The Nikon D5500 has a megapixels of 24.2MP, but the Nikon D90 is only a 12.9MP digital camera (11.3MP lower).

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Read more Read less | Edit
19,200 Higher Maximum ISO Sensitivity
The Nikon D5500 is a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera, whereas the Nikon D90 is only a 6,400 maximum ISO speed digital camera (19,200 lower).

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Read more Read less | Edit
Moderately Larger Display Diagonal
Nikon D5500 is 3.2" screen, but the Nikon D90 is only a 3" screen digital camera (0.2" smaller).

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

Read more Read less | Edit
Vari-Angle LCD Display
The Nikon D5500 has a vari-angle LCD display, but the Nikon D90 does not.

A 'vari-angle display' on a digital camera means that the display can be adjusted so it can be viewed effectively from many different angles.

This is a helpful addition because it means you won't have to hold the camera directly in front of your face in order to view the display successfully - helpful if you're shooting from unusual angles.

Read more Read less | Edit
Touchscreen
The Nikon D5500 has a touchscreen, whereas the Nikon D90 does not have a touchscreen.

On a camera, this means that the digital display on the back of the camera is touch-sensitive, rather than relying on buttons.

Touchscreens are easier and more intuitive to control.

Read more Read less | Edit
12% Higher Display Resolution
The Nikon D5500 has a display resolution of 1,038,800 pixels, however the Nikon D90 is only a 920,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (118,800 pixels lower).

The display resolution on a display camera denotes how high detail the display is.

High resolutions on the display of your camera means that the photos you take will be shown in higher detail, allowing you to see them more clearly.

Read more Read less | Edit
GPS (satellite)
The Nikon D5500 has a GPS (satellite), but the Nikon D90 does not have a GPS (satellite).

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

Read more Read less | Edit
48% Lighter
The Nikon D5500 is a 420g digital camera. That's 200g lighter than the Nikon D90 (620g).

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Better for Portrait Photography
The Nikon D5500 is better for portrait photography than the Nikon D90.
When ranking cameras for their skill in taking portrait photos, we’ve concentrated on several key attributes. The most important of these are image resolution, sensor size and image stabilisation. A larger image resolution means the portrait will be more detailed, while the sensor and stabiliser means that the portrait won’t be blurry at all. On top of that, a pre-flash can help reduce the chance of red eye, and smile detection can help find that perfect moment Finally, extras like a handheld remote control or a self timer can help with taking self-portraits and group shots.

Better for Landscape Photography
The Nikon D5500 is better for landscape photography than the Nikon D90.
When ranking cameras for their ability to photograph landscapes, we’ve concentrated on a number of key attributes. The most important of these is optical zoom capability, since it allows you to take detailed photos of particular parts of the landscape from a long way away and still have them come out in good detail. Weight and battery life are also very important, since you may be carrying your camera with your for a long time while walking around - you want it to be light enough to not be a hassle, and with a good strong battery, so it doesn’t run out of juice mid-way through the trip! Finally we have taken into account several important factors, such as environmental protection (especially water and dust resistance) and whether the camera comes with GPS, in order to pin-point exactly where you took the photo for later reference.
Read more Read less
Better for Everyday Photography
The Nikon D5500 is better for everyday photography than the Nikon D90.
When ranking cameras for everyday use, we’ve concentrated on size and battery life, since you don’t want your camera weighing you down as you wander, and you definitely don’t want it running out of juice! Good optical sensor size and an image stabiliser are also important, since many of your photos will be taken with very short notice, and these will help reduce any instances of blurring in the photo. Finally, a moving display allows you to tilt the display up and down, in order to raise or lower the camera to find interesting angles, while still being able to see the display to frame the shot.
Read more Read less
14 Reasons For
Bigger Eye Relief
Nikon D90 is 19.5mm Eye relief, but the Nikon D5500 is only a 17mm Eye relief digital camera (2.5mm smaller).

Eye relief (also known as eye point) refers to how far away from the eye piece your eye can be and you can still see the full frame of the image that will be taken.

A larger eye relief distance is useful for people who wear glasses, meaning that they can't put their eye directly on the eye piece.

Read more Read less | Edit
850 Battery Life
The Nikon D90 is a digital camera that takes 850 battery life, whereas the Nikon D5500 only takes 820 battery life.

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Better for Sports Photography
The Nikon D90 is better for sports photography than the Nikon D5500.
One of the most important attributes of a good sports photography camera is speed. The players at a game will normally be moving very fast, so you need a camera that will keep up with them and produce clean, unblurry photos. Therefore a fast shutter speed and an image stabiliser will allow you to react fast to sudden events without the end result turning into a blurry mess. Connected to this, a multi burst (or ‘motor drive’) functionality will allow you to take a larger number of photos in a very short space of time - therefore meaning you’ll have a large number of shots to choose from when selecting the perfect photo afterwards. Because you may be taking an awful lot of photos, a good battery life is very important too. Finally, weatherproofing is always a good idea - rain doesn’t always stop play, and you definitely don’t want it to stop your camera!

Better for Wildlife Photography
The Nikon D90 is better for wildlife photography than the Nikon D5500.
When ranking cameras for their ability to photograph wildlife, we've concentrated on a number of key attributes. Optical zoom is important to allow you to take clear, detailed photos of animals without having to get physically close to them. A high ISO sensitivity will help take cleaner photos in low-light conditions. Finally, since animals tend to move (and sometimes quite fast), we consider a trio of the camera's shutter speed, auto focus power and whether it has an image stabilisation system or not. All three of these will help you take crisper, cleaner photos of fast moving objects.

Key Features

Megapixels

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Maximum ISO Sensitivity

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Display Diagonal

The display diagonal is the size the size of the screen integrated in to the back of the camera. A larger display diagonal makes it easier to see if a shot has turned out as intended. Pocket cameras have smaller display diagonals as full size digital SLRs.

A larger display diagonal makes it easier to take photos and to see if a shot has turned out as intended.

GPS (satellite)

GPS allows the camera to know where it is in the world and to automatically tag each of your photos with the location it was taken at.

If your photos have been tagged with a GPS location you can see where they were taken, automatically let your favourite photo software or website retrieve the address for that location or display them on a map.

No

Weight

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.
