So...I've decided that my 'after' Christmas present to myself with all my gift cards will be a new camera....I've spent DAYS looking up all types of cameras. Right now I have a very basic point and shoot but really want to upgrade to a nicer camera that will be able to take pictures from farther away, take HD video and have a tiltable LCD screen... I've gone back and forth with the idea of getting a DSLR, another type of point and shoot, and now I just discovered the 'bridge' cameras or Superzooms as they are sometimes called. I'm thinking this may be the right type of camera for me....so as high techie as a full DSLR with extra lenses and such, but better than a basic point and shoot. So I was curious if anyone HAD one of these cameras....I've done lots of research and was just about ready to buy a Panasonic Lumix70 until I realized it didn't have the tiltable LCD screen. I know Nikons get high reviews but area also notoriously slow, which isn't really for me as my current point and shoot feels 'slow' which frustrates me. So after research I'm leaning towards a Canon SX-50 (older model but apparently has better reviews than the newer model). I also looked at a Fujifilm S1. Any thoughts? Anyone have one of these types of cameras? Anyone have a different camera you'd recommend more....point and shoot, dslr...? I was hoping to stay under the 500 range (preferably in the 300-400 range, but I think we could swing 500 if it was REALLY worth it). So I'd love to hear your thoughts!!!
