DV frame rate will allways play at 29.97 FPS. You can shoot at a higher shutter speed then play back at 1/2 speed, but even that wont look great. True film (8,16,35mm) allows for really high framerates, but it is expensive. there is a way to achieve good slomo in post, check here for a full tutorial. http://shumways.net/n/html/article.php?sid=25&mode=&order=0 . All DV cams will allow for some kind of manual focus.
