    Has anyone found a compact digital camera that still has a viewfinder? I'd like a 10X optical zoom lens, 10 mega pixels or higher. I have a Canon PowerShot SX120 IS. It's a good camera indoors, but the sun makes it too hard to see the view screen. Any recommendations? Thanks.

    If you can find a G10, get it. The current iteration is G12. These have all the various shooting modes you'd find on a dSLR as well.

    More importantly, what effective focal range do you want? To say you want 10x zoom doesn't mean much if you don't indicate where you want the 'zoom' to start from.
