What is the best bridge camera with a large LCD screen?

Bridge cameras with a large LCD screen:

Sony HX1Sony DSC-HX1

It's not often that a camera comes to the market with new technologies that excite camera enthusiasts, but the HX1 does just that. Not only does it offer something new with its panorama sweep and handheld twilight modes, but it also offers a specification as good as that of any other superzoom camera currently on the market.

Good image quality and performance follow, meaning that the HX1 is pretty much the complete package. The price is currently a bit of a stumbling block, but with that bound to fall in the near future, the HX1 looks like a good buy indeed.

HS10Fujifilm HS10

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.
