I am shooting a person standing in front of a portible green screen. Space is limited so there will not be a lot of moving around... just a guy speaking either WS, MS or CU, and I'll cut between them later in post. My question is... which is the best setting for the camera 60i, 30P or 24P. As far as I know, the only place that this will be shown is on the internet if that makes any difference in the decision. Any help would be deeply appreciated.

If you really don't have a preference aesthetically between the modes, I would probably go with 30P, since you don't have the judder frames from the 2:3 pulldown on 24P. If you want to shoot 24P, it'd be best to go with 24PA 2:3:3:2, remove the pulldown during capture, comp in a 24P timeline, then add the 2:3 pulldown back when you output.

Thank you so much for the imput. One of my major concerns was any blurring from rapid hand motions... my client tends to talk with his hands. I wasn't sure which mode would best capture the blur best in order to avoid that green glowing trail that can appear.
That green glowing trail can usually be taken out by proper lighting of the green screen.
Two back lights, two front lights (zip softs work great), actors lights, and a slight hairlight.
And make sure that there is no green reflecting off the wall onto your character, I've had to have someone 10-15 feet away from the wall, to make it work, which is default.
