If you had problems holding the SX50 you'll probably have trouble holding most bridge cameras. The Fujifilm HS50EXR is a little bigger than most bridge cameras so it may be easier for you to hold. I have the similar but older HS20EXR, and its image quality is very good for a bridge camera. If you can find an HS50EXR you should try holding it. It also has a little bigger sensor than most other bridge cameras. I've gotten acceptable (at least to me) photos at ISO 1600.

I actually just got the Nikon P520 from Sam's Club and it does fit my hand a lot better the SX 50. I still assessing whether this is the camera that will meet my needs as I get a 90 day return at Sam's club, but I know in two weeks if it's the camera for me. My only three complaints are no raw capture, no hot shoe and external microphone plug, and it isn't the longest zoom out there.  I going to see if I can find some birds this weekend and see if this camera will cut the long range shots.
