Is there any digital camera that permits to control the shutter velocity when recoding videos?

Also exposure, but the important thing to me is control the shutter (to record lights moving effects in movie).

Thanks!

I think pretty much any of the higer end camcorders (ie: Sony FX1 etc) allow control of both shutter speed and aperature.

Ok. Thanks. But I'm looking for the cheaper option. Something like the Canon S2 (unfortunately it records videos very very well, but it doesn't allow shutter speed control.

Thanks anyway.

Any other opinion?

Nope, I mean the shutter speed (1/1000 - 1/500 - 1/250...) in video mode.

Video places limitations on the minimum shutter speed, if you want to maintain a fixed fps rate. For 30 fps, it would be difficult to use a shutter speed slower than 1/30. Higher shutter speeds should not be a problem, but may be a limitation in the design of the camera.

As amazingthailand said, manual control over shutter speed is only available in high end camcorders or professional video cameras. I don't think you can find this feature in any digital cameras. They are not designed purely for high quality video anyway.
