Advice Needed for Camera Purchase

I posted in the photography forum, but have had no responses and thought I may have better luck here with getting needed advice.

For quite a number of years, I used a Pentax Optio 330. It took wonderful pictures, in addition to having great zoom and macros. It has been ruined by the battery splitting and dripping it's goo into the camera. Therefore, I am on the search for a new digital camera. I prefer one that has an optical viewer, but it seems that those belong to bygone days. Point and shoot is my style of photography. Would like to keep the cost to around $300.

Since I haven't been in the market for a camera in a long time, your suggestions and thoughts would be most appreciated.
