Best choice for fast-moving kids on pic and video?

Dear all,

Can anybody help me with the best choise of fast camera (point&shoot type, closest to DSLR quality of pics & video or ... open to suggestions what ... but up to 300eur totally max)? I am not a professional, but very enthusiastic and would like to make beautiful, not blurry or noise pictures of my baby, who is moving a lot. My dream camera - if sth like this exists, should have:

-full HD, stereo without annoying noises

-at least 16x optical zoom

-optical image stabilization

-high-speed sequence of shots/sec


-Face recognition


-Be suitable for capturing fast-moving kids, without making blur or pics with noise

-makes high quality pictures even without flash in standard room (low) visibility

-be also good for nature scenery; also night scenes

-ISO 6400 (actually I don't know if this is so important...), automatic ISO

-good, preferably automatic reduction of too white/shiny or too dark spots in the picture


and be not more than 250-300eur ...

I know I want too much, but I hope you can help me with best suitable and closest to my wishes camera, within this budget, as the more I wander among reviews, the more I get lost.

I thought eventually about:

- Canon Powershot SX240 HS,

- Fujifilm FinePix SL240

- Panasonic LUMIX TZ30

Or Olympus PEN E-PM1  (may be + Olympus ZD Micro 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 II R MSC or if you suggest sth better for may case?)

or Nikon 1 J1 . Here -  Nikon 1 Nikkor 10mm f/2.8  or Nikon 1 Nikkor VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6??

or Nikon 1 V1 Here - Nikon 1 Nikkor 10mm f/2.8 or 1 NIKKOR VR 10 mm or

Nikon 1 Nikkor VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6?

Please guys, I know you are the best and I hope to get answers soon :)))
