a 5 frame bracket is a series of 5 shots with a middle exposure, and 2 shots on the +EV side of it at different EV and 2 shot on -EV of it at different EV. Only panasonic offers a 5 shot bracket. All others only offer a 3 shot bracket. After you shoot the bracket, you take all 5 shots, and stack them in a HDR program to get the final results.

I am getting ready to head back to Germany, I am thrown my internal clock back to Central Europe time. But I only need 5 hours of sleep a day.

if you do get into HDR, people and moving objects are not good hdr subjects so you know.

Well, my brother went to our local camera shop today and liked both the D5000 and the 500D. He is undecided which to go for. I told him the Canon 500D is awesome but he said he will go back again tomorrow for a 2nd look.

What do you think people?

For "family and landscapes", my preference would be the Nikon. It has a slightly wider angle of view.

The 500D is a better tool then the D5000, it gives him more lens options, and great AF system for tracking action.
