nikon_d5000_amNikon D5000 vs. Canon XSi

The Nikon D5000 is a 12.3 MP DX digital SLR camera. It offers a plethora of features not previously seen on its earlier offerings to the D-SLR family of digital cameras, including a 2.7 inch flexible Live View monitor – capable of moving backwards and forwards, enabling the user to view a frame from different angular perspectives. It also includes Nikon’s patented EXPEED image processing technology in order to enhance the resolution of every image. Included are features indicative of the technology found on most Nikon digital cameras: Split second shutter response, continuous shooting up to four frames per second, and (as an added feature to Nikon’s newest model of digital camera) HD D-Movie mode, allowing the user to capture moving images in high definition.

The Canon XSi is a 12.2 MP digital SLR camera. It is a direct response to the sophistication found in earlier competitors in the SLR digital camera category. It includes patented technology specific to Canon cameras, including the EOS Integrated Cleaning System, DIGIC III Image Processor, and (as an added feature to the newest permutations of Canon’s digital cameras) a CMOS sensor. The camera comes with its own 3.0 inch LCD monitor that is compatible with SD and SDHC memory cards.

The Nikon D5000 offers 11 point autofocus and 3D tracking that enables the user to focus a film with impeccable accuracy, creating higher resolutions than ever before offered in Nikon’s line of digital cameras. The camera also makes use of NIKKOR optics to ensure that even in situations when the camera tends to shake, the picture comes out clear, and an active sensor cleaning eradicates dust from the sensor as soon as it falls.

The Canon XSi includes technology that enables the user to capture images perfectly in varying shades of sunlight – enabling photos to be captured in dramatic lighting without producing the banding effect. As is indicative of most Canon digital camera offerings, the XSi makes use of Auto Optimisation to ensure that when images are underexposed they still produce an image bright enough to be recognised. Canon’s EOS Integrated Cleaning System makes use of technology that gets rid of dust on the lens as soon as it appears – the Self Cleaning Sensor Unit shakes off dust as soon as it makes contact with the sensor.
