tough decision

I was looking at this for a few days but the £30 code wasn't working 'til now.

great price for this bridge camera but it sits in the middle and under performs both compact and dslr kind of the worst of both worlds slow at wide angle and zoom

I think there are better options for your money even at £200

It's been many years since I owned a bridge but I will offer my advice, especially if you're viewing as a beginner camera.

I bought a bridge after enjoying my compact cam and wanting to get into photography a bit more. Thought a bridge would be ideal. They look like an SLR and have similar layout and control dials. After I bought it, I found myself very disappointed. The pictures were actually poorer than my previous Panasonic compact. Low light stuff was dreadful, noisy and nasty. That wasn't the worst though, I realised there was nothing my bridge could do the compact couldn't, apart from the mental optical zoom. But it didn't matter, it just didn't take the photos I wanted. I then bought a cheap entry level Sony SLR, after selling the bridge. I was in a different world and wished I'd just gone to SLR first.

I don't know much about this camera, perhaps it's very good for what it is. However, save a bit more and about £130 later you've a decent entry level DSLR.

If your Budget can stretch to it this kit would be far superior as an entry to DSLR
