Welcome on-board Richard...
Can you describe the camera specifications which would be appropriate?
Resolution, zoom range and the type of viewfinder you need - electronic / optical...
The most obvious super-zoom choices today with electronic viewfinders are the Canon SX20 IS and Panasonic FZ35 / FZ38.
Most electronic viewfinders on super-zoom compacts are quite low resolution though. If you need a high resolution EVF, then the Micro Four Thirds bodies could be an option, like a Panasonic G1, although you'd need to find a suitably long lens to go with it. Luckily there's lots of adapters available to mount various DSLR lenses.
Alternatively, the live view feature on most DSLRs allows you to zoom-in on the image (albeit on the screen at the back) for a really magnified view, but again you'd still probably need a big lens to go with it.
