    I would recommend the EOS 550D over the D5000. It's a more expensive camera, but I found the ISO range, focussing system and HD video mode to be far superior. Here's my review if you like to have a perusal; http://whatdigitalcamera.co.uk/equip...0d-review.html

    I'd say as far as ease of use is concerned the Nikon might be slightly simpler, purely because it has a built in guide mode which explains every function. In saying that, the Canon has a visual Creative Auto mode which allows for a more visual represntation of the settings you're changing. For example, instead of having a series of numbers to alter in order to blur the background of an image, you're presented with a pair of sliders in which you can alter the focus to just the subject, or subject and background. I found the EOS 550D very easy to get on with, and used the Creative Auto mode plenty of time when I was testing it.

    The EOS 550D might be more expensive but it's the more recent camera, and more importantly, has 1080p video ... though I'm not sure if that's something that you actually need. Full review here http://www.digitalversus.com/article-362-8154-1.html
