A bridge camera should be viewed as being a bulkier version of an advanced compact super-zoom, with which it shares sensor size and similar zoom range and features in most cases. Examples are the Panasonic TZ series or the Sony HX. Personally I like both formats for different reasons but sometimes there is no substitute for just carrying a camera in one's pocket. Bridge cameras can be just as light but they will seldom be pocketable.
