Having looked at Roy's Goldfinch image, I was wondering what the current superzoom compact and bridge camera market is like... I would like something that costs no more than a few hindered pounds and yet which I could use for distant or small subjects when I am in the car or otherwise without my normal equipment. Image quality, noise suppression and image stabilisation are key to me and I am not wedded to any particular brand. What do you all suggest? Do you know of any high-quality review material in this area?

I only use Superzooms, John, so I'm always checking what the latest improvements are to sensors etc. at the moment (and In my humble opinion) the two best Superzooms are the Canon SX40HS and the Panasonic FZ150; both would be more than adequate for your needs. Links to reviews here: http://www.photograp...sx40_hs_review/ http://www.photograp...c_fz150_review/ Look at the Sample Gallery for each, to see the full ISO range of images You might want to wait a few weeks, as Panasonic usually announce a few new cameras later this month.

This might interest you, John; it's not released yet, but will be later in the year. Probably the most useful upgrades are the constant f2.8 aperture and the higher resolution EVF.http://www.dpreview.com/previews/panasonic-lumix-dmc-fz200/
