Few pics using my new DSLR

After my cannon SD950 Digital camera broken, i wanted to buy new camera this time i thought of going for DSLR, Did some small (re)search in internet and short listed two DSLRs which was in my budget and entry level DSLRs. 1) Nikon D5000 with kit lens (Rs. 34.5K) 2) Cannon 550D with kit lens (Rs. 45K)

After going though many reviews and considering my requirements I've decided to go for nikon D5000 DSLR

Things i considered while choosing Nikon D5000
  • Both has HD video recording and HDMI built-in port, Nikon 720p with 24 fps and Canon 1080p with 30fps, right now i've a 22" LCD HD monitor both 720p and 1080p looks almost same in that monitor
  • Nikon has better Continuous Shooting Speed 4fps when compare to 550D 3.4fps
  • Auto Focus 11 focus points compare to 9 in 550D
  • Vari-angle monitor, very useful when taking low angle, high angle or any odd angle photos, Canon has fixed lcd display tho it has 3" high resolution LCD
  • In-camera retouching, Active D-Lighting, RAW Development, Interval shooting, Stop motion movies
  • Last but not least is obviously 10K factor

There are three dealers in Bangalore for nikon D5000

Nikon Site quoted price Rs. 38K
Whizz - Rs. 38K
GK-Value - Rs. 38K if you want to buy i can get you a good deal ( obviously i wanted to buy,  don't when showrooms become road side shops )
Croma - Rs. 34.5K + 1K for addition 2yrs warranty cash back if the model is outdated that time ( optional )

Yes, i've chosen Croma
