Hi, I think that you will find using a bridge camera not much different from a DSLR and many offer the same functions. I have both types of camera, and what you can be reassured by is that most cameras have an 'AUTO' function which means that all you need to do is to point the camera, compose your subject and press the shutter release. The AUTO function will select the appropriate settings for the conditions and the rest is up to you. The camera's AUTOFOCUS system will focus it for you so really it's quite simple. Any instruction booklet that comes with a camera will show how to use it in all its modes, no worries. All the best.
