I have owned the Nikon D3100 for a couple years now and its a great camera. Picture quality is great and I am very happy with it. The only downside is zooming which I am limited to 200mm with the 55-200 lens. I recently got a good deal on the Canon SX50 HS which is a 50x zoom bridge camera. Now I am not really sure what to do. I don't need both cameras. I'm not a professional photographer or anything. I just want a good quality camera for trips, family stuff, etc. The image quality seems to be way better on the D3100, but the zoom is limited, even with the 200mm lens it's not all that much. The SX50 HS is easier to use, optical zoom is amazing, but once you go into digital zoom the picture quality is horrible. Looks like an old cell phone pic from 10 years ago. The overall image quality on the SX50 isn't quite as good as my Nikon DSLR, but it's almost there. All images seem to have a very slight cloudiness when compared to the crisp clear images of the D3100. I am leaning towards selling the SX50 and keeping the Nikon. The are both roughly the same size. I'm afraid if I keep both I will never use one or the other. The both have qualities that I like over the other. What would you do in my situation?
