The 550D is the better of the 2 camera. Can shoot a ev bracket, and canon had the better HD performance, and shoot at a bit faster burst rate. The AF is better on the canon as well. The 550D and 600D are cameras that compete with the d5100. The d3100 is a lower end camera compare to the 550D. The canon lets you use all eos lenses, while the nikon will on AF with nikon AF-s series lenses and 3rd party lens with built in motors.
