Well it will be time to do my homework. I was looking at some videos on the Rebel T1i and saying its rebel was the Niko D5000. In your opinions which one is the better camera? Or if there is 1 slightly better im open for recommendations.

they are both capable cameras.

the t1i has the advantages of better video, better AF, and compatibility with all Canon EF/EFS lenses, while the Nikon lacks a focus motor, so certain prime lenses/macro lenses won't focus on it.

I think I am going to be adjusting some financial situations and I may have one by this weekend I will keep you guys posted. If the fuji is going to be 600, for an extra 150 it seems like i would be getting a much more better camera, Plus i got some bestbuy gift cards i need to get rid of

Not sure what you mean. Do you mean shutter speed as in 1/60, 1/125, 1/250 etc.? Or do you mean shutter lag - the time between when you press the button and the picture is taken?

sotorious-

If you are inquiring about shutter speed range, they are just about equal. Lens aperture will be the only issue holding back the shutter speed fro goint to any particular point within the shutter speed range.

I was referring to holding down the shoot button and it taking multiple pictures with in a few seconds.

Also a lot of people are complaining about the auto focus on the camera. I dont know if its people being nit picky or what, i also read a few reviews being noisy at any iso. Is it settings problem with those 2 cons?

the t1i's autofocus is better than the d5000, and is probably the best of the entry-levels.
