Looking for new camera-compactish. Have Sony W90

Have Sony Cybershot W90 with 3x zoom. I like it except for 2 things.

1. Would like a 5x or higher optical zoom. The new Cybershot W150, W170 have such but have same features and issues as W90

2. Does not shoot well with flash indoors or low light conditions.

Took some pictures indoors recently and it was something out of the Twilight Zone. We are all thin people but we looked huge. Strange. Perhaps it was taking pictures of the future....like in this movie I once saw...

Battery life with LI-Ion is great, camera size is fine, do not need smaller camera, LCD fine, want fairly rugged camera (will not break too easily with normal care)

Need to have: Image Stabilization, Price 250-$350. Movie mode is nice. 8MP is fine for me, if higher and not a big price diff-okay..

Level: Novice

Thanks for your recommendations.

If you tolerate a bit more physical size, I have a suggestion that remains within your desire budget and provides excellent flash photos and 10X optical zoom. Tak e look at the Sony H-10. It might be a very workable solution for you. Here is a sample photo for you, taken with the Sony H-3 which has been replaced by the newer H-10 model.
