We have decided to upgrade from our samsung wb5000 bridge camera to another model, but after reading through lots of reviews we are unsure which to go for.

The bridge cameras we are looking at are the following :

Canon SX30IS
Sony HX100V
Nikon P500

Which one does everyone think would be the best all round performer, we have looked at the Canon SX40HS but it is just slightly out of our price range or should we save a little longer to get that one, Thanks for any help
