Default A Good Zoom camera+Full HD video for kids & pets?

I am looking for a good super Zoom camera under $500 range.

I've been looking at these cameras.
Fuji HS10, Olympus P100, Olympus SP-800UZ, Lumix FZ40, FZ100 Fuji s200exr...

Mainly, I take pictures of my dog running and playing outside at the park.

I need a camera with good zoom, image quality and fast shutter speed.

Pls help!

I would say the FZ100 as the shooting speed is very fast in burst, but it requires fine tuning to shoot sharper photos...the FZ40 would be my next choice...

The F200exr is a good camera but doesn't have HD video. The SP800 has almost no manual controls and the image stabilization has been criticized by some as marginally effective. I think you meant the Nikon P100, which also has a very fast burst mode, like the FZ100. I would go for either the FZ40 or the FZ100. Actually, I would probably go for the FZ35, as it is a little better in low light.
