    Default Advice on which superzoom camera

    Planning to buy a superzoom camera. Looking at the Canon SX60, the Lumix FZ300 and the Nikon B700. Any comments on these, or any other recommendations?
    What I really like to get one is a 1 inch sensor camera like the Lumix FZ1000, but then I don't get the zoom length I want. Cropping the pictures is possible of course, but what about the quality then? Any experience of the FZ1000 for bird photo?

    Dan, I'm not aware of anybody here who uses any of those cameras, especially for regular bird or wildlife shots. They just don't have the required features or IQ.

    You may get more luck on the likes of DPreview or FredMiranda.

    Been on a safari with a guy who only used a gx60 and I was impressed with the quality, viewing on the back of his camera and zooming in. I did not see images in LR/PS, so cannot assess in depth.
    Full action shots or birds in flight, I seriously doubt this camera will be able to to what is needed, but then you carry a small, all purpose camera.
