Your predicament might be the most common one seen in these forums. All the camera manufacturers should put a sticker on their cheaper kit boxes saying "Not suitable for fast moving toddler photos." or something.

Hillarious. And so true! I've actually gotten some quite good pics with the Oly xz-1, which I got on supersale. I think it's great and the colors are really nice. With the fill flash and shutter priority set to 1/200, I do get quite a lot of what I want. It's just that sometimes there's this lag and I hit the shutter and nothing happens for JUST enough time for her to move. Or, she moves one step closer and the autofocus is off. Or, she moves one step closer and she's too close to the flash and becomes overexposed. It's very frustrating!
