A nose for the facts
I read with interest your review of the Nikon D5500. In fact, I was so impressed I bought one! I would like to point out one thing regarding the touchscreen. The reviewer correctly pointed out that it’s possible to alter settings via the touchscreen while using the viewfinder.
I think this is a really good feature. I set it to aperturepriority mode, so I can alter the aperture on screen or using the dial. The point I would like to make is the reviewer was wrong in saying it is possible to alter settings with your nose. This can’t happen because only the right-hand side of the screen is usable at this time. Your nose will touch the disabled left half. Eric McAlpine, via email Eric, thanks for the email. The review in issue 44 does make reference to changing settings with your nose, and you’re right that some settings are far enough away not to be an issue. The only element that may be a problem is the AF point selector, which can be locked easily to prevent being altered. In this instance we perhaps needed to be more specific in the review.
