First Bridge Camera:- so far so good My wife bought the Canon SX50 last Christmas and I too wanted to upgrade from a compact to bridge camera. I am delighted with the Nikon Coolpix P530. It is smaller, lighter than the Canon but the results are equally impressive. I have taken pictures at a recent wedding and over 200 at a 60th birthday party and the quality even on normal resolution is superb. At 42 times zoom it should cover most situations but there is slight shake. Feel that the Canon image stabalisation system is better than the Nikon, but at over £100 less it id still satisfactory. The macro feature is incredible and you can captures pictures at around 1 cm from the subject. Camera has a wide range of scene features but I have found the auto setting superb and not needed to use anything else. The only downside I have found is that it takes about 4 hours to charge!!!. There have been some comments about it being "plasticy" but it is a solid construction and feels robust. All in all a great camera which I would recommend to anyone looking to enter the bridge camera market. 12 August 2014
Canon Coolpix P530 So easy to use, as an amateur I am loving the quality photographs it produces, and pleased that even showing them to the family on the TV for once I am getting really good comments from them. It's really great to be able to swop from the back screen to the viewfinder especially on sunny days, wish I had bought it earlier, a nice mid range quality camera perfect for multiple use. 29 July 2014
