Which Digital Camera : Sony Cyber-shot, Nikon Coolpix or Olympus VG?

Being dormant to post for the past 6 days doesn't mean I am neglecting my blog. I was loaded with monthly reports to boot in the office that made me drained at the end of each day. So glad I am able to post now.

Anyway, my younger sister is bugging me to take my current digital camera, it's a Canon PowerShot ELPH 100 HS. I am pretty satisfied with the photos I got from this cam, but my sister strongly want this. Nonetheless, it's an ideal time for me since I am actually planning to  purchase a new camera and experimenting with a new model. My other Canon camera is quite old and bulky, a PowerShot A95 which I bought ages ago, sometime in 2005. I am not super tech-savvy but I am looking for something stylish, lightweight and slim that could conveniently fit in my purse or pocket, with sharp photo results and with a very affordable price that will meet my budget as a mom.

I'm contemplating among Sony, Nikon or Olympus models and I extensively looking for the lowest price available in the market. My question is which is which? Any suggestions?
