Both the Canon EOS Rebel T1i and the Nikon D5000 are the latest digital SLRs to be released this year by the two popular camera brands. While the Nikon D5000 is cheaper and does offer a fancy articulating display which always attracts that bit more attention, the T1i does offer more megapixels (15.1) and boasts full HD video capture.

I don’t know about you but from my untrained eyes, this case looks to be well done, you can take photos from your iPhone too without needing to take it apart. While it may look abit bulky, the creater – greenhousefx has done a terrific job of perfecting this wooden case and has even done a nice Apple logo at the back.
