Nikon 5000D vs Canon EOS500D for a beginner
Jul 8, 2009

I am new to photography but want to get into it; I'm looking to buy a good DSLR that is simple enough to figure out the basics relatively quickly, but still will leave me room to "grow into" as I get more experience.

Based on my research, I have pretty much narrowed it down to the Nikon 5000D or the Canon EOS500D (though I'm more than open to additional suggestions).

I mainly will be looking to use it to take landscape pictures (mountains and whatnot), along with wildlife shots. I would like to be able to take pictures and get them blown up so I can hang them on the wall and whatnot.

I also need it to be simple enough that my technology-challenged wife can at least take some simple photos.

If anyone has any advice for me, I would be most appreciative. Thanks!

Chris
