    I can recommend this magazine if you are interested in landscape photography. Totally free of charge but only available on digitally on iOS as far as I am aware:

    Light & Landscape Photography Magazine

    The content is contributed by both established photographers and mag readers, so it is quite an insightful mix. Really inspirational, and as I say, free!

    I been reading online etc, I think a bridge camera is what would suit me best as I'm sure I will be no more than a casual photographer, any suggestions more than welcome.
    Thanks Ian

    I have a Nikon coolpix L840 and I have been really pleased with it. Easy to use and easy to upload pictures. You can also mess around with settings if you want but mostly I use it on auto.
    I think this has been discontinued but I think the B500 is similar. There seems to be the option to use Bluetooth or WiFi to upload photos to devices.

    Here's a couple of photos that I am quite please with -

    Default Bridge Cameras

    It used to be with SLR cameras which were all manual that you had to know your stuff (settings wise) in order to capture a great photo. With the advancement of Digital SLRs (DSLR) there is now more scope for the inbuilt processors to optimise the photos you take while still being in control of all the settings.

    If you want to jump straight in with decent camera for point-and-shoot purposes, I would go for a 'bridge camera'. These are increasingly becoming more popular due to the auto-advance settings that helps the beginner. These are between a DSLR and a compact digital camera. These are really user friendly and I currently use a sony dsc hx300 20.4 MP and it produces excellent photos by point-and-shoot methods.

    Hope this gives you something to think about!

    We have a G12 knocking around in a drawer...gets used once a year on the Mrs's skiing trip. Its main problem is that it is a real pain in the A**e to alter settings.

    I used an old Canon 200D for many years with a 28-105 (think) zoom. It was as capable as other cameras I have had since then but the basic picture quality for normal size enlargements was superb. Having switched to very expensive Nikons I have gone back to a basic Nikon 300D for nearly everything. And I use old metal and glass 1st tier Nikon lenses rather than today's plastic horrors!

    I used Nikon for all my professional work for years finishing up with a D300S which with a Nikon 17-55 2.8 lens was an excellent piece of kit but very heavy.
    I have now sold all my Nikon kit and moved over to Fujifilm mirrorless, to be precise an XT1.
    I find that this does everything that my D300S could do and is much lighter and easier to work through the menus.
    For those who just want to point and squirt, just set it to automatic setting and away you go.
    Most professionals feel that mirrorless is the way forward and Nikon will be bringing one out soon.
