Assuming a dart spped of 10-15 m/s (I think that's about right, but I can't remember why) and a standard field length of ~3M (9ft, but whatever)
and a standard video camera (60 fields per secon/ 30 frames per second)

So...15M/s worst case

you get (3/15) *30 = 6 frames.

is that enough? 1 shot every 1-1/2 ft roughly) , or if you can view fields, 1 every 6-1/2 "

if not, then I think casio makes a consumer grade camera that has a slo-mo function with some outrageous claimed fps like 500fps or higher but don't know much more than that...if it's consumer grade, then using it will be little more than selecting the right method from the onscreen menu.
