Help with choosing a camera
May 21, 2014

I'm going on a roadtrip in July to the Badlands, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, and the Rocky Mountains.  I'm set on a bridge camera, and my budget is $350 max.  I'd like to get good wide shots of various scenery, and hopefully some animals as well.  I also love space, and would like to get good moon shots, as well as starry sky shots.

I've been pretty set on the FZ70 for the wide zoom range and 60 second shutter for star pictures, and plan on ordering a camera in a couple days so I wanted to get some feedback before I go ahead and get it.

Before I leaned FZ70, I was also looking at the Fuji HS50EXR, but I don't know how much of a difference the 42x vs 60x and it's 30 second vs the Panasonic's 60 seconds would have with what I want to do.

Thanks for reading and for the help!
