The F55 (N55 in the U.S.) is a 35mm film SLR autofocus camera introduced by Nikon in 2002. It was targeted at a new and lower price-point than the F65 (previously Nikon’s cheapest autofocus SLR). It is unique among recent Nikon autofocus SLRs in that it does not support autofocus on Nikon lenses with “AF-S” silent wave motor focusing, or the “VR” optical stabilization features found on some lenses. It features several different operating modes, including seven program modes that are subject-specific, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, and Manual. It will only offer full capabilities autofocus and metering with G type lenses without the aperture ring.
