Bridge cameras fill a peculiar niche in the marketplace. They’re classified as point-and-shoot cameras, but if you think of point-and-shoots as cameras that can be easily slipped into one’s pocket, the Sony RX10 III doesn’t fit the mold. Bridge cameras can also be as large and...

The world looks different at night.That, more than anything, continues to drive me toward night photography. I started doing photography with a Kodak 110 film point-and-shoot camera, which was completely incapable of performing satisfying night shots due to its lack of manual exposure control.
