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.

Excellent choice, Heather. The Canon PowerShot SX500 is available for £139.99 from Argos.....that's an £100.00 reduction.

Hello, pleased to hear you are enjoying this thread.

I suppose to answer your question; we would need to know your OH's level of skill or willingness to go further into it.

There three basic types of camera, each will do what you require with varying degrees of accuracy.

1) Compact


3) Bridge

Compact cameras are mainly point 'n shoot cameras, although many of those at the higher end are capable of taking stunning pics.

DSLR cameras are those chosen by keen amateurs and professionals....these have interchangeable lenses and are the most expensive & complicated.

Bridge cameras are a kindda midway house between compact & DSLR.

My choice would probably be:

Compact Canon PowerShot SX500

DSLR Nikon D3200

Bridge Canon PowerShot SX50HS

There are of course very good camera phones, which I know absolutely nothing about.

It's a starting point, but I'm sure others will have good suggestions.

PS. IMHO Canon & Nikon make the best cameras.
