I have the Canon EOS 1000.

Entry level but about what your looking for.

Not a bridge camera but would seem to meet your needs Panasonic DMC-TZ60. I have one and it is good. Worthwhile shopping around for the best deal.

If I was in the market for a bridge camera it would be between these. Panasonic Lumix FZ200 @ £340

With a slight preference for the Canon PowerShot SX520 HS @£250.

This is on specs and what my photographic friends say, as I use Canon DSLR cameras.
