SUNDAY BRIDGES--the bridge camera

Bridge cameras are defined as those that bridge the gap between simpler point-and-shoots and larger SLRs.

Meet my D90's little brother (or maybe sister?), the Nikon Coolpix P510.  This camera was recommended to me by the Nikon shop in Belgrade, but over there it costs about $100 more...so I took advantage of my current trip to the US to buy one through Amazon.com, where the price was super-good.

It has some drawbacks and won't replace my D90, but it also has quite a few pluses.

Want to read more and maybe get one?  Check out this camera on AMAZON. In the meantime, check out real bridges on Louis La Vache's SUNDAY BRIDGES.

«Louis» is always delighted with your clever definitions of "bridge". Good one, Bibi, and «Louis» thanks you for contributing this to Sunday Bridges!

Another clever choice for the theme! Enjoy your nice new Nikon --

These are OK for some things but they can't match a DSLR. I shoot mainly Nikons but like the Canon point-and-shoots better and have the SX40 which would be comparable to the one you've pictured, I think. The big benefit as far as I'm concerned is that these "bridge" cameras are better than the typical p&s but easier to carry than a typical DSLR.

Let us know how this works out for you.
