Just started reading the book and It looks excellent and just what I need. I have been looking at buying the Panasonic lumix dmc fz 2500 bridge camera. People seem to love it and I like that I can travel without additional lens and that it is good for 4K video. Thomas, what do you think about bridge cameras and in particular this Panasonic one?

Thomas Payne
