The Information display on your Nikon D5500 provides a control strip that gives you quick access to some of the most critical of those settings. Here’s how it works for viewfinder photography (that is, when you’re not shooting in Live View mode):

  1. Display the Information screen by pressing the Info button or pressing the shutter button halfway and releasing it.

  2. Press the i button or tap the i symbol on the screen.

    The top part of the display dims, and the two rows of settings at the bottom of the screen become accessible. The currently selected setting appears highlighted, and its name is displayed above the control strip. For example, the Image Quality option is selected.

    Press the <b><i>i</i></b> 000button or tap the <b><i>i</i></b> icon (left) to activate the control
    Press the i 000button or tap the i icon (left) to activate the control strip (right).
  3. Select the setting you want to change.

    Either tap the setting or use the Multi Selector to highlight it and then press OK. Either way, the next screen displays the available settings for the option.

  4. Adjust the setting as desired.

    Again, you can tap the setting or highlight it and then press OK. Either way, the camera returns you to the control strip screen. You can then adjust another setting, if needed.

  5. To exit the control strip, press the i button or tap the exit symbol.

    You also can just give the shutter button a quick half‐press and release it to exit the control strip.
