So, money not necessarily being an object, what would you folks recommend? I canít help her myself since Iíve had zero experience with bridge cameras.
No need to sacrifice focal length just dont use it fully zoomed, you still have the extra length if you want it that way.
It would be interesting to see what they are dissatisfied with to give a better idea of recommendations.
Yes bridge cameras have their limitations but they also have their strong points.
Would your friend be happy with this.
