Nikon’s range of bridge cameras is one of the most popular on the market. We look at a few of the intelligent choices available.

Bridge cameras have the best functionalities of both compact ‘point-and-shoot’ cameras and entry-level DSLRs. Nikon’s range of bridge cameras, including the COOLPIX P520, L820 and L320, offer a combination of DSLR functions as well as being lightweight, user-friendly and ideally designed for photographic enthusiasts.

The most notable features of these cameras are the impressive super-zoom capabilities, high megapixel count, the relatively compact proportions, and in the case of Nikon’s offerings, the quality NIKKOR glass.
