Re: Really want an X-E1 but...

Sounds like what you should get is the X20 ... now with Phase detection AF, ie. super fast. And, if it's like my X10 ... there are a number of Best Picture modes, where it starts shooting a burst as soon as you just touch the shutter release, as opposed to pushing it all the way down. You can specify something like 8 or 16 frames, and how many of those before pushing the release all the way down and how many afterwards.

Another great camera for that is the GoPro3 Black ... there are numerous options for taking bursts, up to 30 frames in 1 second and 30 frames in 3 seconds. Those are usually too many frames so I typically set it for 5 frame/second bursts.

So many cool things you can do with kids and GoPro's ... check these videos out ... watch in HD:
