Creative bridge cameras:
If you are after a bridge camera, the HS10 should be on your shortlist. The viewfinder is its only real failure and no camera in this class has perfected it. If this was solved, and the sensor enlarged to APS-C size, buying a budget DSLR would seem wasteful, but the HS10 is an affordable alternative.

The Panasonic Lumix FZ38 is a top-performing superzoom compact at an affordable price point. In fact, for the money, you'd be stretched to find any better. The lens is great, as are the controls, and the overall feature set - including a wide-ranging 27-486mm zoom - successfully caters for the beginner right through to more advanced photographer.
