What is good zoom? The Panasonic FZ5, Canon S2 IS and Sony H1 has 12x optical zoom. (around 430mm in 35mm eq) All of them are 5mp (plenty for 8x10).

The Canon S1 IS is 3.2 MP, but wont take as good night shots as it doesnt have a af assist lamp.

Of the 3 cameras I mentioned, I think the S2 is best. Take a look around the forums as there are a LOT of threads comparing those 3 cameras.

There are also a LOT of alternatives. What is your price range? The S2 is about $500us.
