Kodak Easy Share Z980 which I've had for a couple of years and it really works great. The zoom is a 24x Optical zoom which goes from 26mm to 624mm. Really super closeups. I also have an Olympus E600 DLSR which I just bought a few months ago. It has two lenses which are from 14mm to about 40mm, and from 40mm to 150mm. I get real nice closeups, but not as close as the Kodak Z980. I bought both of them from QVC and used their easy pay plan and paid them off over four or five payments, interest free. Just made my last payment on the Olympus, so it's officially mine. Woo Hoo! Eventually I will be getting another lens with more zoom range. They are very expensive, so it will be awhile before I buy one.
Hope that helps you a little.

Some years ago, I bought a Panasonic DMC-TZ7.
I have two "big" digital cameras (DSLR's), but wanted something smaller to always carry in my purse.
I LOVE the DMC-TZ7!!!
It has a powerful, POWERFUL zoom, wideangle and lots of good programmes!
Now, however, I've given it to my husband, and bought the latest version - the Panasonic DMC-TZ10.
It has an even better zoom, better wideangle and GPS!
My mother-in-law loved my TZ7, so we bought her the model in between my two - the DMC-TZ8.
She carries it with her everywhere and uses it almost every day!
I think it is rather impressive, considering she's turning 80 in March!
My "American mom" was also very impressed with my Lumix, so she went out and bought the American equivalent (DMC-ZS7)!!!
Now my mother and sister are both putting this camera on their Xmas-wishlists!

So I just ordered to Canon Powershot S95 - quite a small camera, loaded with features. Due to the large aperature, it is quite capable in unlit places and has quite a few advanced features. In my research of point & shoot cameras, there is such a large choice out there and they keep getting better and cost less - you can't go wrong with any of the mid-to-high-end range. I aNot sure what your budget is, but I would be confident with any of the Nikons or Canons out there, as well as the others mentioned above - there is a large market out there, that is for sure!

I bought a Fuji FinePix about a year ago when I was looking for a small camera to carry in my purse. We were looking at Sonys and the clerk showed me the Fuji because he thought it was a great buy. I'll have to say I love it, and it is waterproof.
