    D5500 (Black) : Electronically-controlled vertical-travel focal-plane shutter
    D5500 (Red) : Electronically-controlled vertical-travel focal-plane shutter
    Camera shutter is just like a curtain in front of the Camera sensor that remains close till the camera fires. Camera's shutter controls how long the sensor is exposed to light. It uses a pair of 'curtains' or blinds. The button that fires the camera is known as shutter or shutter button, because it triggers the shutter to open and close.

    D5500 (Red) : 1/4000–, 30s, in steps of 1/3 or 1/2 EV; Bulb; Time

    Shutter speed also referred as exposure time is the time when the camera shutter is opened to expose sensor to the light. There are some times when you require fast speeds like sports or action photography, but there are other times that you can slow things down a little and get some very nice results indeed.

    Shutter speed is generally measured in fractions of a second. Eg: 1/250 means one two-hundred-and-fiftieth of a second or four milliseconds. Most modern DSLRs cameras have shutter speeds of up to 1/4000th of a second, while some high end cameras can handle much higher speeds of 1/8000th of a second and even faster than that. The longest shutter speed on most DSLRs is typically 30 seconds i.e. without using external remote triggers.

  • Probably the most common settings for a DSLR used outside are 125th/sec at F8 or 250th/sec at F8.
  • 30 seconds or more: Good for night shots
  • 1 second: If you are at a party or a capture a dance
  • Range (line of sight)
    D5500 (Black) : Approximately 30 m/98 ft (assumes no interference; range may vary with signal strength and presence or absence of obstacles)

    D5500 (Red) :  Image sensor cleaning, Image Dust Off reference data (Capture NX-D software required)
    Dust Delete Data is a piece of data that is appended to the photos that are to be used for dust detection and deletion using Canon’s Digital Photo Professional application (DPP) provided on the disk that comes with your Canon 70D. It maps the spots where dust is detected and writes the size and location to the appended data file for DPP to use.
    D5500 (Black) : DX
    D5500 (Red) : DX
    The image sensor format of a digital camera determines the angle of view of a particular lens when used with a particular camera. In particular, image sensors in digital SLR cameras tend to be smaller than the 24 mm × 36 mm image area of full-frame 35 mm cameras, and therefore lead to a narrower angle of view.

    Camera User Interface
    D5500 (Black) : Viewfinder
    D5500 (Red) : Viewfinder
    A device on a camera showing the field of view of the lens, used in framing and focusing the picture.This is the view of the world through the camera, the small rectangle with black edges that shows you what part of the world the lens is looking at and whether it is in focus or not.
    Viewfinder: The viewfinder is the only important user interface on any camera.

    Autofocus
    Autofocus Type
    D5500 (Black) : Contrast-detect AF anywhere in frame (camera selects focus point automatically when face-priority AF or subject-tracking AF is selected)
    D5500 (Red) : Contrast-detect AF anywhere in frame (camera selects focus point automatically when face-priority AF or subject-tracking AF is selected)

    D5500 (Red) : Face-priority AF, Wide-area AF, Normal-area AF, Subject-tracking AF
    Auto Area AF uses color information and special face recognition algorithms to automatically focus on an individual’s face, which is extremely helpful when there’s simply no time to select a focus point.
    D5500 (Black) : Focus can be locked by pressing shutter-release button halfway (single-servo AF) or by pressing AE-L/AF-L button
    D5500 (Red) : Focus can be locked by pressing shutter-release button halfway (single-servo AF) or by pressing AE-L/AF-L button
    It allows you to focus on the most important part of your scene you want to capture and then hold that focus while you recompose the shot, ensuring your final image has the correct parts in focus.

    Exposure Control
    D5500 (Black) : Exposure Compensation
    D5500 (Red) : Exposure Compensation
    Exposure compensation is used to alter exposure from the value selected by the camera, making photographs brighter or darker.
