Camera with 24 frames per second?

You don't necessarily need an expensive camera, but you need a camera with manual settings (which are, in many cases, more expensive than a point and shoot model). You can pick up all kinds of used prosumer cameras on Ebay for less than $500 and set your shooting speed to 24p.

Default cameras in europe record at 25 frames per second, and in the USA its 29.97. It's referring to broadcast television standards, which largely defined consumer electronics for many years. I haven't even looked at a consumer-grade video camera in over a decade but it's very possible that consumer grade specs will start to change as broadcast continues to change (analog to digital signal, 4:3 to 16:9, etc).

When you place your product in a video editing software on your computer, you rip it at 24 frames per second, this will create a very undesirable effect. If you have decent editing software it will throw all kinds of warnings at you before adding 30 fps footage into a 24 fps project. Always shoot at 24p.

In the movie 28 days later, this defect is done on purpose in the scenes with the infected running around, this is slightly different - this was shot at 24p on a Canon XL1 but with a very high shutter speed. This eliminates the motion blur that you're accustomed to seeing at a more conventional shutter speed of 1/50 or 1/60.
