Default For a 170 $, which of these do you recommend ?

Hello everyone,
I'm out there for a Point&Shoot,
I'm a Medical student, and need this camera to take pictures of Cases & Patients for recall later,
Also, I will use it for Scenery, sunsets, Aerial Photos, from time to time,

No editing in Photoshop or that Stuff ... , I don't even know how to use it

My proposed Criteria :
- Zoom x8 or more
- 12 MP or more
- 25 mm wide-angle Lens or less
- Good lens which doesn't display Black colour at the periphery of the photo as my earlier BenQ camera does see the picture in the attachment

I'm hesitating between DMC-ZR3,DMC-FH25 and Samsung HZ35w

The online reviews are controvercial, one says this Camera is good ,9/10 rated, Another says it doesn't worth a dollar,

My budget is 170 $,

Please help me deciding between the above models, or recommend me one that meets these Criteria and Price,

Thanks for your help, and appreciate that.

Samsung HZ35 is a good choice. On a side note, you should look for less MP, not more, as I presume you're not printing posters. Less MP on the same size sensor means larger photosites, which results in less noise and better low light ability.
