    I am looking for a digital camera with a large optical zoom (8x plus) to
    take hillwalking and on a safari holiday. Options to point and shoot (for
    the wife) and manual options for me to play about with and a fairly robust
    build quality are required. Needless to say it has to take a mean snap.
    The Fuji 5500 strikes a chord. All advice, experiences, comments welcome.
    Thanks
    Ian

    I would have a look at the S7000.

    If you need a long zoom, you may want image stabilisation as well. Canon
    S1 IS is the cheapest of those and probably fits your budget.
