Can't give you any thoughts on the above cameras, I might suggest something in the Canon Legria range.
I've not got the model I use with me at the moment but I'll post the model number for you! It gives great performance for £800, It's not the camera I'd suggest if your into grading your own footage but it's a great point and shoot and it works camera, 720P and 1080I I think
The other consideration if you want to do time lapse content is for how long? Do you want to record 12 hours worth of footage for a time lapse? If so you might want to look at a video capture device to plug into a laptop and stream the footage onto a TB hard disk.
