From what I understand, the 24/30p settings are better for "movies" and anything you wish to appear "cinema like". You are right on the 60i / 30p, the camcorder records at 60i then later converts to 30p. I would assume that anything with fast motion, like sports, would look more natural at 60i, and more "creative" at 24p / 30p. There is a cinema mode in the camera that up's the contrast and color to give the video a more cinema appearance and is said to go well with a 24p setting. I'm not sure I answered your question or not, but hopefully it helped a bit.
