Best general-purpose bridge camera
The perfect mix if you want dSLR-like controls and better than point-and-shoot performance with the convenience of a single fixed lens.
Best bridge camera for enthusiasts
The Panasonic Lumix FZ300 might not be a huge update from its predecessor, the FZ200, but it's still one of the best in its class and a fantastic option for a single camera for photos and video -- even in the rain.
Best bridge camera value
This bridge camera is a great middle ground between a point-and-shoot and digital SLR. Though it's old, it still stands up to the newer models, at a better price.
Best with a really big zoom
One of the top bridge cameras in its class thanks to improved design, useful features, excellent photos and video and -- of course -- its really wide and really long lens.
