I'm new to this and I'm not sure how to open a new post so I'm stealing yours as you seem to be in the same situation as me

I'm looking to buy a Bridge camera after doing loads of research I have come to find a Bridge will do me fine.

I am wanting to know also how the MP make a difference. I am looking at Nikon Coolpix P530 - 16MP, Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H400 - 20.1mp & Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ72 16.1MP.

At first glance I thought the Sony would be the best due to the MP but after reading many reviews it seems this doesn't matter as I wont be blowing it up to A2 too much. I want a camera that can do good portraits, outdoor shots and events.

Hope you can help - and if anyone could tell me where to write a post that would be great too

Thanks K.
