Some cameras sort of use ND filters - they're digital though, not proper filters really.
If you're specifically looking for a replacement for your old Panasonic (I think it's a TZ3 but you're post says TZ£ - same button you see!) I'd stick with Panasonic and get the latest model. Panasonic invented this sort of camera and, for my money, they still make the best all round big zoom compact.
In my experience the difference mainly comes down to implementation of manual systems rather than simply their presence. Thats where the bridge cameras win. The best implementation of these systems is still on SLRs and their EVIL/Hybrid/CSC (whatever you want to call them) siblings. If you want real control and flexibility and a smaller form then that might be your best option.
