Today I received my birthday present and I am thrilled with it. It is the very latest Sony Bridge Camera, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V. It has 18.2 Mega Pixels, 30x Optical Zoom (up to 60x Clear Image Zoom), 3.0 Xtra Fine LCD and full HD movie - etc. etc. I fell in love with it when I had my tutoring. I am so amazed that my husband remembered. I never took my SLR with me - too cumbersome, too heavy, too big with the lenses. I hadn't thought that a bridge was the answer but I am thrilled and can't wait to PLAY!!! More technology to master but it is the camera I wanted.
