    What kind of advice do you want / expect?
    What reviews / descriptions have you read so far?
    Your question is a bit too generic. Some people here use flash of both brands. You might want to search and read their postings.

    Oh, I have the same question.
    Would you recommend a beginner to purchase a YN560 (cause it's cheaper) despite it being a manual flash, or would it be very difficult to use it in casual situations as compared to a more expensive iTTL like Nissin Di622/SB600?

    Short answer: No. Beginner + Casual situations = TTL flash (iTTL for Nikon, ETTL for Canon).
    Use manual flashes if you are familar with the topic / have the time to adjust / want to achieve special (=non-standard) effects.
    Please read what iTTL is about and you will understand which job goes to you when you use manual flashes. Then you can estimate how quickly you could do the job in your casual situations. The camera requires a fraction of a second.
