Need a realtively cheap bridge camera quite soon (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
I was thinking of buying a cheap-ish bridge camera for a friend. They don't have a camera and it would help them a lot. I was thinking of Nikon L320 but some say it is too old technology wise.

What other options are there? I want to spend less than £120 for sure.

Any recommended online sellers selling secon hand?
I think MPB has a good reputation in the UK.
I used an FZ150, which is 12 years old, and still got enjoyable results. You can have a look at my gallery if you wish (after September 2023 I am using a micro 4/3 camera). I think FZ150, FZ200, FZ300, FZ80, FZ82 may be good choices if you can find it within your budget.
Have a look at LCE, they often have a good range and competitively priced too. The other option may be to check facebook marketplace for anything local - if you can try before you buy then you may get a bargain - e.g. someone near me is selling a Canon SX50 for £80...
