Default Specific specs: Is this Possible?

I am looking for a camera with these specific features and am getting a little tired Googling. This may not exist, but here goes:

1. P & S to fit in shirt pocket
2. Super zoom: at least 10:1
3. electronic viewfinder (in addition to LCD display)
4. HD video (at *least* 720P, preferably 1080P
5. Last, and most difficult-- external microphone jack

Any thoughts appreciated. My former trusty camera, the Olympus UZ750, fit all the criteria above, EXCEPT-- only SD video, and couldn't quite fit in shirt pocket.

I doubt it. Viewfinders have been voted out by consumer and thus are mostly limited to enthusiast models. Canon still makes at least 1 pocketable P&S though w/ a viewfinder though. However, I'm certain it doesn't have an external mic jack.
