Fujifilm 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.
