Goldilocks and the three cameras.
Dec 26, 2013

FZ200, Stylus 1, RX10.

I'm looking for a bridge camera for action photography. My images would rarely be printed, and would mainly be viewed online or on HDTV.

I specialize in "grab shots", which a friend calls"twitch photography". I did the SLR thing for decades and am done, done, done with carrying a heavy lens bag. I don't even want to carry m4/3. I want a bridge camera that lets me do what I love.

#1 requirement is an EVF as close to a pentaprism and ground glass as possible, for fast composition without blur when everything is moving in different directions.

#2 is a decently fast sensor and lens.

#3 is extreme portability, compactness that encourages always carrying it.

The three cameras listed above are my short-list. The HS50 just missed.

I really don't want to spend $1300 on the Sony, but will if I have to. I like the in-camera features of the Lumix, such as HDR, but wouldn't use them much.

The Stylus1 seems to cover my needs on paper, but will it do so in my hand?
