What are the reasons that you narrowed down the list to these 5?
If you have chosen these because of reviews from various sources then you really can't go wrong, now, can you? With all things being equal, chose the camera that has the best battery capacity and the one that that can turn on and function the fastest, the moment you hit the "ON" button. You may think it is trivial but realize that a special moment is fleeting and if you have to wait a few seconds for the camera to respond, the moment is gone.

What is your photographic experience?
If you are the occasional photographer, these selection are all fine, pic one and go with it.

Berny, Thanks for your response.

Actually, I am a newbie in photography. So my photographic experience is zero. But I am interested in taking photos like the experience photographers have done in the geographic magazine.
I have a tight budget so I couldn't afford to buy the expensive digital SLR Cameras. I found these 5 cameras from some sources on the web.
But as I said I have no experience in this field, I cannot make a final decision.
So I hope someone who has more experience in photography can suggest me which one is the best one for me to buy.
Please suggest me.

I would get the Panasonic Lumix FZ5. Great image stabilization features and virtually no shutter lag and quick to turn on.

However it is not the camera that takes the pictures, it is the photographer. Given the right skill, the proper eye and the gift of experience, any primitive camera will work better than the best equipment in the hands of the unskilled.

So go out there take pictures and learn your way to great works of art.
