I've been wanting to look up the main differences and specs on Nikon and Canon DSLR's for a while. I finally did with the results below:
The (ss) in the Video column means that the LCD viewing screen on the back of the camera body is on a hinge and 'Swings' out. The Nikon D5000 hinges on the bottom and the Canon bodies hinge on the left side of the screen as you look at the back.
Thanks for stopping by,
