Increased shutter speed wouldn't make items appear as if they were in slow motion, but rather yield a crisper image of fast moving objects. Yet again you fail to grasp the mechanics of the situation. And f-stop? You do understand that most camcorders have an automatic iris that limits the amount of light falling on a CCD, and so, you will get better depth of field in bright light? Because despite your alleged experience in the field, you appear pretty ignorant of how the equipment you supposedly used actually works.
