Time For a New Camera?

Having decided to buy a new camera, now comes the hard part… which one?

Should I buy a newer model Canon DSLR, or go for one of the new bridge (superzoom) cameras? Having spent quite a bit of time considering the options, I decided to go with a bridge camera. But that takes me back to my original question – which one?!

The main contenders for me are the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V, the Nikon Coolpix P510, the Panasonic DMC-FZ150K, the Fuji HS30 EXR and the Canon PowerShot SX40.

Having studied the pros and cons of each model, I’ve decided to go with the Nikon P510 and have just ordered it from the States. It should be here in a few days and then I’ll post a review and some sample shots.
