Atomos Ninja footage: ProRes or DNxHD for PC editing?

I edit in Premiere Pro CC, the latest version, using Window 7
I record from one of my cameras onto a Ninja Blade. I can choose whether to record in ProRes or DNxHD.

It's not broadcast work I'm doing: all destined for the web. It's pretty straighforward, few special effects, little resizing and just a moderate grade.

My question is, what are the pros and cons of each of these codecs in Premiere?
Any reason why I should prefer to record and edit in one or the other?


Thanks

Mark

I edit Prores from the Atomos NInja Star in Premiere CC using the Miraizon codec. They have since stopped selling the product. This is another option: Avid DNxHD Template for Vegas Pro. This should also work in Premiere.

I use DNxHD in Premiere CS6 on a pc. No real reason, just because. It works just fine for me. If you are just doing stuff for the web then I don't really know that there is an advantage to using either one. Then again, I don't know if there's an advantage for broadcast either which is what I am doing.

If your camera has an 8-bit output and if it's purely for the web with minimal grading required I think I would lean towards DNxHD. In this codec family there are 8-bit versions which render to 8-bit H.264 or x264 very nicely. All your Prores codecs are 10-bit and I see no major advantage going that way, at least not for the web. Your 8-bit DNxHD files are going to be about 30% smaller than the equivalent bit rate in Prores and generally easier to handle on the PC.
