My dad would like a new camera for Christmas. His wishlist is a digital camera with 15x zoom plus an eye viewer (as he struggles to hold the camera still when looking at the screen on his current camera - he feels the eye viewer helps him hold the camera in a more stable position).

We are probably looking to spend up to 150 but could go a little higher.

If anyone has any advice, I'd really appreciate it.

Thank you

Hi Jackie,

Probably you best bet is to take a look at Fujifilm's S-line for Bridge cameras, specifically the FinePix S4200 and S4500. Both feature optical viewfinders (though a little on the small side), as well as large handgrips and large zoom ranges. The S4200 features a 24x optical zoom running from 24-576mm and can be picked up for around 120, while the S4500 goes that bit further, with the 30x optical zoom ranging from 24-720mm and is only a little more at around 135.

Hi Phil.

:DThank you so much for your reply. The spooky thing is I've been to Argos this morning to buy the Fujifilm bridge camera you suggested, so it's great you've given me extra confidence in my purchase.

Thanks again

Jackie
