I've narrowed my camera choices down to THREE cameras.

Canon Powershot Sd1200, Canon Powershot A495 and Panasonic Lumix FS30/FH20 (same thing).

They're all relatively cheap and i'm comfortable spending money on either one so price is not that big a factor.

I want to use the camera for vacations, family photos, pet photos, scenery, indoor/outdoor, and under lowlight sometimes.. I also wanna get into blogging so i'd wanna take self portraits and few videos as well.

I think the two canon ones are pretty similar but still, I wanna know which one you'd rank #1, 2, and 3 just in case i can't get my first choice on boxing day ^^

Those three cameras are rather similar. I would rank them:

Canon A-495, if you do not need an optical viewfinder.

Canon SD-1200, the SD-1200 pops to 1st place, if you want an optical viewfinder.

Panasonic FS30
