I'd like to buy a camera, and I'm a beginner, but would like to learn more with manual settings. I hesitates between entry level dslrs and bridge cameras, and realised bridges are more affordable for me (without the need of buying proper objectives as well)
I went through many-many reviews, but I still can't decide.
So i would like to ask your opinion on wchich one's the best! smile.gif

My requirements for the camera:
Price should be among 300-470$ (though prices here in Hungary are more than in the USA)
Manual settings (mainly interested in manual focus, preferably with ring on the lens barrel)
Sharp and nice colorful images with as low noise as possible
min. 12 MP
good (full)HD video

I was considering Sony Cybershot DSC-HX100V (456.32$ here), Fujifilm FinePix HS30EXR (481.15$ here), Canon PowerShot SX40 HS (466.43$), and other Nikon bridge cameras (like Nikon Coolpix P510 (452.63$), which has manual focus, but without ring, and others that don't have manual focusing at all..)

Thank you very much for your help!! smile.gif

I would suggest you to go for Canon Powershot SX40 HS. It is areliable camera you can trust upon as a beginner. Eairlier my friend was using this one and I was really amazed to see the photographs he clicked from that camera.
