What Are Advantage Of A Bridge Camera Over A Superzoom Compact?
Posted 06 February 2012 - 02:20 PM
The lens specs and overall camera specs are very similar, so why do people go for the bridge cameras?
Any comments are appreciated.

A big plus for me buying a bridge (FZ200) vs. a compact superzoom was the viewfinder. In many lighting conditions, a screen becomes very difficult to see/use. Other advantages are the (arguably) greater number of modes (Aperture/Shutter priority, manual, bracketing etc.) available to me. Add in the ability to screw a filter onto the lens.

I have had a few bridge cameras, Canon, Nikon, and loved the ability to crop within the frame. Like the previous member, I think the long zoom opens all kinds of possibilities.
The last one I had was 50X and I was looking at the new ones with 60X but I finally decided on the Nikon D5300 with the 18-140 lens and will get a longer telephoto for that type of work. I wanted clearer photos, so larger sensor and more resolution. I also wanted faster focusing, and better Frames per second which you don't get with the bridge cameras.
