I've been endless browsing and researching cameras. Pls help sway me in my purchase.

I have it down to these three:
Canon S110
- Good IQ, lowlight, fast
Sony HX30V
- Better zoom, video, panoramics than Canon
Sony RX100
- Pretty nice, but costs 30% more (turn-off) and doesn't have much zoom

My primary uses:
- Vacation pics, taking landscape pics, recording video, pics of pets
- I don't care for messing with RAW, pics to be mostly viewed on a PC

Want:
- Decent zoom
- Good lowlight
- Be able to take decent pics of rel. fast objects (pets)
- Decent macro
- Panoramic features a huge plus, I like taking a lot of these

I want to like the S110 due to IQ, but I just feel like I like the bells and whistles in the Sony better (nice video, panoramics, gps/wifi). I'm not sure how much of a diff it'll make if i'm not using RAW, or blowing up large pics.

Three very nice cameras.

I think the overriding factor is how much you value the extra zoom of the HX30V.  Or how much you value low light shots.

Use DPR's comparison tool as a guide.
