Don't record in 24p if you want silky smooth HD.

When you shoot, try setting the camcorder to shutter priority mode. This means that you get to set the shutter speed while the camcorder takes care of other settings. See what happens if you set it to 250, 500, or even 1000 (you're shooting outside in well-lit conditions, right?). This should reduce the blur you see.

Also, try using a tripod to reduce the amount of shake you see on the screen.
