Bridge cameras are characterized by a fixed lens with a high-quality optical zoom. Moreover, they allow for extensive manual image adjustments. Bridge cameras sit between compact cameras and SLRs, both in terms of quality and price-wise.


Digital bridge cameras are aimed primarily at serious amateur photographers for whom compact cameras do not offer enough functionality. Bridge cameras offer more features than compact cameras, including a much longer optical zoom and lenses with wider maximum apertures. Additionally, settings such as focus, brightness, contrast and sensitivity (ISO) can be set manually. Such functions are otherwise only found in digital SLRs (DSLR). Bridge cameras don't cost nearly as much as their larger cousins, and tests have showed yet one more clear advantage to them: since the lens is fixed, its optics can be precisely matched to the camera. Furthermore, no dust particles can get onto the sensor, which in DSLRs requires laborious cleaning. On the other hand, these lenses lack the flexibility to handle many kinds of photographic situations. Also, bridge cameras have small image sensors, which at high resolutions and low light conditions unavoidably produce a significant amount of noise. Their compact size and low weight as well as their good balance between features and price make bridge cameras a highly desirable choice for even semi-professional applications. This has lead to the bridge camera firmly establishing itself as a transitional model between the other two types.
