I want a camera with at least 5x optical zoom. Any sug.? $200- $300 maybe a bit more.

I was thinking of the Kodak Z700 but i heard its not too good because it doesnt have image stabilizer...

I don't think you would need IS on a 5x zoom. The Z700 has a max telephoto length of 175 mm, which should be easy to hold without shake. I have a camera with 10x (370 mm) and am able to hand hold shots at maximum zoom without IS. Some people feel it's a must - some don't.

What may be more important than IS is photo quality and the type of photography you intend to pursue.

Come back with some more information about your ability and what you hope to accomplish, and you should get some more responses.
