2 Questions about D7000's video mode

Hello guys

My D7000 is my first SLR that comes with a video, so all is new to me (apologies if my questions sounded dumb in advance).

Ok, so I enjoy video making as much as I enjoy picture taking. I used to use my Flip Ultra HD camcorder for videos prior to getting my D7000. Once I read about SLRs coming with both photo and video capabilities, I thought that this will be so useful for me.

Before I decided on the D7000, I read some reviews about Canon's SRLs ... being better than Nikon in their "video mode". I don't know how accurate this is as I don't know much about Canon cameras. I did a little search on one of the Canon's models (the 7D) and realized that it had features such Selective Coloring (everything in video goes B&W except for subjects in Yellow color for example). I thought that it was cool.

I ended up with Nikon D7000 because I already have Nikon D80 and a couple of lenses; feel more comfortable with a Nikon.

I am wondering, are there features as creative as Selective Coloring in the D7000 that I am still not aware of?

Also, In my menu settings in video mode, I choose "subject tracking". It automatically tracks my subject when shooting. I like it. What I don't like is when, during the filming, it all goes blurry, during the process of re-selecting the subject as it moves. Is there a function/setting I can choose to make the full view "in focus"? Like let's say, I don't want for only one subject to be "in focus"; instead, I want for everything in the video to be clear and in focus. Is that possible?
