Default Need Great Zoom Camera for less than $250

I own a web development company and often times we need to take pictures/videos of products to use for the site or of the building, etc. Sometimes we need good zoom, so I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good zoom camera with some decent video capabilities as well.

Any help is appreciated!

the SX280 has a stabilized lens with 20x zoom. i used to own it - it's a good camera with full manual settings (auto and program are good, too) and good video, especially for the price

pcake, how does the battery do for you? I've read that it can be troublesome to take out and about as the battery will only last 100-200 shots.

i always got over 200 shots with mine, and didn't find the battery difficult to take out. i'm actually a little surprised to hear people have trouble with it.
