Re: Best bridge camera?

Agree with Stephen re the superzoom. There is a Panasonic that will go to 560mm! I'd be looking for a focal length starting at around 18mm to give 35mm equivalent of 24mm. Many don't go as wide as this. Top end is less important as long as there is a reasonable length.

FWIW I've just bought my Son a Panasonic GF6. Not a bridge camera, but it gets blinding press and punches well above its weight. 299 in John Lewis. The LCD is not fully articulated, but it can pivot out from the top or bottom. Lens is equivalent to 24-86mm IIRC. There is a 45-150 (70-300) available for 200.
