Personally I'd go with this camera: http://exilim.casio.com/products_exfh25.shtml
For your purposes. There are better solutions, but not for the price at which you can find this camera on-sale. It does 720p regular speed video, and has other settings for (lower resolution) 210, 420, and 1000 frames-per-second video. Quite honestly you'll very rarely need more than the 210fps video, which is good because at every higher speed the resolution drops out of necessity.
Of the high speed functions, my favorite is the "she walked into the room" feature. It allows you to toggle between 30 (normal speed) and 210fps. It's really cool.
If you're looking for audio, it's mono, but my experience is that it is highly adaptable for this type of camera. It sounds equally clear in a very quite room and at a rock concert. I've never once overloaded the audio.
It also has true wide angle, 20x zoom, 40fps PHOTOS, high-speed flash, a bunch of really cool automatic modes (that could not actually be achieved otherwise by simply changing settings manually) and a bunch of other stuff. My model, the EX-FH20, I bought on a whim last year and I've never regretted it. If you don't want to shell out for that EX-FH25, there's honestly almost no difference at all between it and its predecessor (my model) except that mine costs notably less.
It definitely has its quirks that you'd have to get used to, but I get some great still shots and video out of it very regularly.
