Thanks, Brumbull....yes, & very popular at my camera club.
Heather, I've just taken another look at the Canon PowerShot SX500 and it is in fact listed as a bridge camera. So, if you feel a compact camera fits the bill, the Panasonic DMC SZ9 could be a contender.
There are just so many to choose from.
Just to muddy the waters further, I've recently bought a compact Nikon Coolpix L27.....fits neatly into my top pocket and must say, I'm really pleased with it. - Cost £44.99 from Argos.
