60i = interlaced footage

 

24p = progressive*, more of a cinema look and good if there is not a lot of motion (there would be blurring at that frame rate), should be a good choice for interviews depending on the look you desire.

 

30p = progressive*, better than 24p for moving objects, should be a good choice for interviews

 

pf24 = best used when uploading to web sites (that is according to p. 46 of the user manual) so probably not best for recording interviews.

 

Between the choices above I don't think you'll go wrong with either 24p or 30p.

 

*Non-interlaced

My order of preference would be as follows:

24p

60i

PF30

PF24

 

If the subjects being interviewed are stationary then I would use 24p.  Personally, I would get a friend and experiment with the 24p and 60i to see which one looks best.
