Heat for price, but add me to the list of commenters pointing out that rather than being the best of both worlds, this camera combines the bulk of a dslr with the image quality of a mid-range compact.

For less than this, you can pick up a second-hand Canon 100d off eBay which is smaller than most dslr cameras. You’d be missing the printer and the 45x zoom - depends on how important those things are to you. Personally I’d not miss them, but horses for courses etc

It's not awful but I bet most of them get left at home because they are too big to lug around and a camera which isn't with you won't take good pics! No viewfinder either - which would have helped justify its size.Think hard before splashing your cash: I'm all for encouraging people to take photography more seriously but this really isn't the right (type of) camera for most people.For just a little more money you can get something like a Panasonic TZ60 travel zoom which takes great pictures, has a big zoom and still fits in a pocket. Regularly drops below £200 as it's an older model.


Picked one of those up in the recent curry's misprice for £120.

Can confirm, great little camera.

You're spot on re the hassle of carrying around the bridge camera too, I bought the TZ60 as my DSLR was a pain to lug around for days out.

This won't be a great camera tbh. The lenses on these low end bridge cameras are pretty rubbish.

You'd be better off buying a similarly priced point and shoot with less zoom IMO. Beginner or not.

I expect it's not of much use for any serious photographers but everyone has got to start somewhere! I also think it would be useful perhaps for family pictures and the like. Most decent compacts are potentially only a bit cheaper with neither of the freebies!

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.

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

Well, the optical zoom is very good. And it's made by a very well know lens maker Leica. The Sony zoom is a T* made by Carl Zeiss. You can't get much better than those. The sensor is only 1" but 20 Mp. Ok, zoom lenses can't be as good as prime lenses. But who can afford a range of prime lenses nowadays? And it's all in a reatively compact body

I noticed this on mine when I bought it and thought I was imagining it. I Then Googled it and saw lots of comments about it. Sadly it went back.

This lense is massive compared to any dinky little phone lense, and you will see much higher quality pictures)- 4 frames a second burst is very good if you need it- 112mm wide angle is handy- 720p recordings is very good and what I usually record anywayalll for only £99.99... yeah it's hot.



​The physical size of the sensor is the important factor, not the number of pixels. The one in this camera is more than a 6x crop on a full frame sensor, so you will get very noisy results, but at least there's an optical zoom and focal length advantage over a smart phone.

He'd just gorged himself on a kill so was sleeping it off. I have a load of shots, I'll share later. There's a nice comparison where the guide used an SLR (but with a cheaper lens) versus this.
This was a good price,although personally I would recommend spend more and get a compact that slips in your jeans pocket and it will give similar results with 1080p video....

Had a Sony hx10v for nearly 4 years,not really missed the zoom being only 16x on mine,but the pictures and especially the video is great,use it a lot for motorsport events.

just my 2 pence worth.
I'll say it again, no good having an all singin all dancin DSLR with mingy lens and pouring over settings and quality when you don't actually get the photo in the first place..
I have been in the same boat as RXP91 and got shots of animals from afar with superzoom bridge cams, of which I have missed out on with a DSLR in the past..
For safari and anywhere you need to zoom in close, unless you have £10G and want to cart a lens longer than your arm around with you, these superzoom bridge cameras are just great!

Do you know what? You don't need anything half this big for full HD quality vlogging! Just look around at the little compact ones - most of them (if not all) record in full HD. The little Sony one I have for my YouTube filming even has a stereo mic. There's absolutely no need to spend this much on one for vlogging - most also even have the little tripod mounting screw at the bottom too. And almost all are wifi too - that isn't restricted to the bigger ones anymore. It sounds like a case of buying more than you need.

This isn't the bridge I would choose but the vast majority of people that want decent cameras aren't ones that wish to have full bodied SLRs, pay the price for them or lug all the crap about you need to get varied shots.



I'm not a camera snob, im fully aware that a lot of people dont want an overcomplicated camera and just want something a bit better than their phone, and that's absolutely fine. I just don't like brands shoving point & shoot internals into arbitrarily large bodies just to make them look more pro to beginners without any tangible benefits beyond ergonomics. I literally ran into this problem last month when a member of family wanted to buy his girlfriend a camera to get better quality shots for her makeup business. He ended up dropping over £300 on a bridge which was solely differentiated from a £100 P&s by its 50x zoom, but he chose it because of the way it was marketed by Canon and because it looked like my old SLR. I'm not saying people should only buy expensive cameras, I'm saying people shouldn't buy what is essentially a bog standard compact with a jacked up price tag simply because it looks like your cousin Harry's cool DSLR.

Are you replying to the wrong person maybe? I haven't mentioned travel compacts.
I'm a massive Canon fan.....but this is not one of their better efforts

For a camera which is relatively new camera....first released only 8 months ago....the fact that it is being so heavily discounted should tell you a great deal....

It really is basically a compact with a long zoom lens (and a slow one at that....f3.5 - f6.6)

It lacks most of the SLR features that Bridge camera users should be expecting.....there is no option to add an external flash to boost the poor built in one's range.....the deal breaker will any bridge camera for me would have to be the lack of a viewfinder....making using in bright light difficult & the lcd screen on this one is not articulated & at 230dpi is very low resolution...

Not offering 1080p video on a 2016 model is also truly unforgivable

their needs. For those who use cameras a lot and know about the different brands then it is limited in comparison to a semi pros camera. For most camera enthusiasts it would not be worth getting.

Black ones £99 though



Thank God. The red is awful.
If you can get CHDK on this model of camera it would be awesome -- all the manual controls you want, RAW mode, EV and focus bracketing, etc.etc.etc. Can't go wrong for this price.

Great Deal for a Canon bridge camera massive 20 mega pixel and 40 x zoom.

So I ignorantly assumed that a dedicated camera such as this might have had a sensor significantly larger then the 1/2.5" sensor in my phone



Frankly, I have a Nikon L310 bridge camera and the versatility of the zoom range is superb and when printed out 7x5" the quality is perfect. Yes I do own 2 other Nikon D-slrs but I would rather carry a £100 bridge camera around than the d-slr where each lens costs more than that. If I am unsure of what I am going to photograph then taking a bridge camera gives me the best compromise.

As long as you are not going to shoot in very dark conditions and do not want to produce printouts above 12 to 18" then this 1/2.3" sensor is adequate.
