Bridge cameras are good all-in-one cameras that offer some of the high quality features and capabilities found on DSLRs or mirrorless cameras, but are typically lighter and more compact. Some of them include long zooms, which mean you can get closer to the action. They’re also great for family shots and video, particularly if you have kids that are involved in indoor activities as well, like in the theater.
Based on our extensive testing, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 is the best compact bridge camera for the money. It packs a sensor almost as large as those found on some DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. It also shoots 4K video in a body that’s easy to carry. If you want to capture the action up close, our favorite ultrazoom is the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS. It has a 65x zoom lens and takes highly detailed photos. However, you may want to consider its successor, the SX70 HS, which can take 4K video.
