Default Pentax 330gs vs. Canon A40 vs. Canon s200?

Hello, I need help.
I will buy a digicam but my budget is limited, and my knowledge also.

The Pentax is a 3MP cam, and have a 3x optical and is small.

Canon s200 is also small but is a 2 MP cam and 2x optical

and A40 is 2MP 3x optical but a bit big.

The digicam is for taking shots at night and in indoors overcoat.
Any suggestion?

P.D. Sorry for my english ops: but i'm spanish..

Taking pictures at night and indoors are a challenge for compact digital cameras. Not that you can't get good pictures, but only if there's enough light for the camera to gain a focus lock, for proper exposure, and to use a fast enough shutter speed to freeze action. Otherwise, blurred and underexposed pictures usually result.

A digital camera with focus-assist AF may help get a focus lock in low-light, but unless you've got enough light, even a slight camera shake or a moving subject might result in blurred pictures.
