Question What compact to buy (list of 11)?

I'm looking to buy a compact digital camera for under 100 to take pictures of people, landscapes and architecture. I don't generally print big pictures - almost always 6x4.
With all of that in mind, I obviously want it to produce as good quality pictures as possible.

I have been searching, and have now got a list of 11 cameras that seem to fit my criteria. I would be very grateful for any comments on them (positive or negative) that will enable me to narrow my options down further. Or, if there is an obvious one not on the list, please feel free to suggest it.

In no particular order:

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS11
Panasonic Lumix DMC-S3
Canon IXUS 105
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS10
Nikon Coolpix S640
Samsung PL70
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W350
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS30
Canon PowerShot A3200 IS
Samsung PL150
Samsung PL200

All comments are gratefully appreciated.

I would go for the Cyber-shot. If you look at the website for them they seem to have some good features like the sweep and the location tagging. I haven't had too much experience with compact cameras though to be honest.

From the list you have posted I feel you can check out with Canon IXUS 105. Its a camera nice camera with good picture quality and video quality is also ok. It has 28mm wide-angle lens so also good for landscape.

I bought a Sony Cybershot DSC-W320 last year (must be the model down from the one you have on your list) and am very happy with it. It has a decent sized screen on the back so you can frame up easily. Must admit that when I first got it, I did keep trying to put it to my eye to take pictures as I'm so used to an SLR!
