Alternative 12.1MP digital cameras currently available which you might want to look at include because of it's better review score, the Nikon P500.

If this camera megapixel is too low for you then you might want to look at the Leica X2 (16.2MP), the Samsung GC100 (£259.74) (16.3MP), or the Canon SX710 HS (£249.98) (20.3MP) which also has a higher rating.
