This is called, "thread hijacking". It considered VERY rude in that it confuses what the OP was asking. If you want an answer to a question, start your own thread!

I'd look at the Fuji HS20 as the best bridge camera out there. 30x zoom, manual and auto modes, fast shot to shot etc I'd get a class10 16GB SDHC card and 2 sets of Eneloops (3 sets if you plan to be in the middle of nowhere without a charger for a few days).........

It is about the best bridge camera for the person that asked the question originally. While it may not be a forum rule, it is certainly very rude. It's the same thing as interrupting a conversation and demanding an answer.

If you want an answer to YOUR question, start your own thread.

"Best" is a misnomer because what's best in one situation or for one person's needs, may not be best for another person or situation. While CMOS-based cameras are best for burst shots or HD video, the still images are also comparatively softer and noisier than their CCD counterparts. So if we are talking in terms of sheer image quality, the FZ40 or FZ35 easily bests the HS20. However, in terms of burst speed or video, the HS20 is the obvious winner.

I have the SX30Is. It has great range (24-840). However, it's not a good low light camera and also not the fastest camera.
I like the Panasonic FZ35, which although it costs at least 50 bucks more than a month ago, is still available at Amazon and elsewhere for less than $300. It's slightly better in low light than its successors, the FZ40 and FZ100. However, it has "mere" 18X optical zoom.

there is one thing about megazoom's none are really good in low light. They are all poor performers in that department. Especially for the op coming form a s90.
