    Question Which cheap bridge camera to buy?

    Hey,folks..I'm new to the field of photography,and have never ventured out of the auto mode .
    But now i'm looking for a decent Bridge camera under 100$. I searched the net for quite a while,but it seems there aren't many decent
    cameras in this range.What I mainly want is manual controls,So that i get a hang of it,before i buy an SLR in the future.
    So i found out these were the ones in my budget: (In order of my choice)

    1)Fujifilm Finepix S2980 ( My 1st choice)
    2)Panasonic Lumix DMC LZ20
    3)Olympus SP620UZ
    4)Canon Powershot SX160 IS
    5)Nikon Coolpix L610

    The last two are just for the sake of options..

    Can anyone tell me,if these cameras any good for a beginner,i.e for learning And has Decent performace.
    Actually I am inclined towards the fujifilm S2980,
    Because it has almost all the features,one can expect in a bridge camera.

    So please let me know,what you guys think of these cameras,,and also suggest any other cameras in the same price range, if any.
    Also the Pros and Cons list of these cameras would be helpful.(Size,battery type,Weight DOES NOT matter,only performance is expected)

    Any advice is welcome,,thanks in advance....

    I would purchase a camera with a CMOS sensor, rather than a CCD sensor, as CMOS sensors are usually better in low light. Of the cameras on your list, only the Nikon L610 has a CMOS sensor. However, there are a couple of other long zoom cameras you may wish to consider that have CMOS sensors and are within your price range.
    Nikon L820 (30x optical zoom)
    Pentax X5 (26 optical zoom),
    Panasonic FZ28
    Canon Elph 330 HS
