Help Me Choose a Camera & Frame Rate...

Shooting a feature comedy with very limited budget.
I'm a writer/director, and won't shoot this myself.

Cameras availble to me: HPX170 with 35mm lens adapter, HPX300 with stock lens, and HPX900 with stock lens.

3. Is there a technique with shutter speeds or something else to mitigate the stuttery nature of 24p.

4. If I go with the 900, is there a versatile lens to rent that won't break the bank?
