If you take your photography seriously and want a decent camera that fits your budget then a bridge camera is the ideal and affordable solution. Bridge cameras fill the gap between expensive professional level DSLRs and cheap and cheerful point-and-shoot cameras.
It’s not always practical to take lots of photographic equipment and a bulky DSLR camera when you’re out and about, but if you want to capture some incredible scenery or wildlife photos, compact cameras simply won’t do the job. In this type of situation, bridge cameras are ideal as they won’t take up too much room, they’re compact and portable and they are capable of taking great pictures even when you can’t get close to your subject.
A bridge camera has enhanced zoom functionality that you simply can’t get when using a Smartphone or a point-and-shoot camera. They are ideal for taking pictures at sporting events or for taking close up photos of wildlife from a distance. Nikon bridge cameras come in a range of styles and sizes to suit all budgets and have lots of useful functions to help you capture perfect photographs.
Whether you’re looking for another camera to compliment your current equipment or you want to take go beyond what your Smartphone is capable of, a bridge camera is ideal.
Love taking quality photos, but don’t want any faff? Bridge the gap (sorry not sorry) between DSLR refinement and point-and-shoot convenience with a bridge camera. It’s the smart choice to capture all your favourite moments, from Instagram-worthy food snaps to family holidays, without having to lug a load of extra equipment with you.
At Currys, bridge camera options stretch from entry-level bargains to top of the range gadgets that even the pros rate. As you’d expect, the more you pay, the higher the megapixel count, but even cheaper models can have an impressive 16.1 megapixel sensor for crisp images. Choose one that takes Full HD videos too, and grab stills from moving subjects to show all the finer details — perfect for budding wildlife photographers and sports reporters. Vibration reduction will keep your videos clear and stable, so your YouTube uploads look even better — no blurring allowed.
If landscapes are your thing, a bridge camera with a wide angle lens gives you greater scope to pan out for the perfect panorama. Wildlife more your style? Then a high optical zoom should be high on your list of must-haves, allowing you to get closer without disturbing shy subjects. As for portraits, with target finding autofocus your device does the hard work for you, so all eyes are on your subject.
Looking for a bridge camera with viewfinder? We’ve got you covered at Currys, with gadgets from the likes of Panasonic that not only offer a traditional viewfinder but also a vari-angle touchscreen that gives you control over your framing and your focus. Go for a model with built-in WiFi or Bluetooth and your photos can automatically appear on your smartphone via an app, making it super simple to share on social media.
