In a thread not long ago, I passively asked for opinions on this Panasonic compact camera. At the time it was recommended and seemed the perfect fit for me. I'm not a photographer and certainly have no intentions of ever being one. However I'm just fed up of taking poor pictures on my iPhone and would like to make better ones. In these endeavours, I'll be purchasing Apple's Aperture to help with the editing/organising of photographs and a decent camera to snap the moments. In the next month I will finally take the plunge. I'm not sure if people will agree, but it seems if you accept a larger form factor i.e. bridge camera, you get more for your money? As I plan on keeping it for a while, I am prepared to sacrifice the size of a compact for the slightly larger bridge camera. But I'm having troubles picking one at the minute. Could anyone recommend a bridge camera for £300 (give or take)? Or do you just think stick with the compact? I just slightly resent paying extra for a smaller form factor. Generally speaking, will a bridge take better quality pictures?
