Nikon P500 vs Canon SX30IS?
Have you concidered the sony HX100V i thought about the Nikon and canon, nikon did not really do it for me, and the SX30IS the noise was to bad at base ISO, the sony has an Excellent Carl Zeiss lens, IQ is up there excellent. Nearly 5000 images taken in a month, all my DSLRs are now sold, dont need them, here is a recent full zoom shot from the HX100V, hand held no P&P. I have loads on pbase, and some on flikr.
