Intercutting with A1 or V1U footage

Am shooting some initial scenes here in Portland OR of a feature for an investor presentation. My goal was to have either two Sony V1Us or two Canon A1s to shoot with. In reality, I have friends with one of each. What would we need to do to enable that footage to cut together? [am using FCS 2 for editing -- with a friend who's a professional colorist to help me at the very end.]

I myself have an HV20. If I need to use it at 24p with one of the other cameras sometime, which should I aim for: the 3 CMOS Sony or its 3 CCD Canon cousin? Likewise, what might we do to optimize matching the image?

Thanks for any guidance.

What format are you shooting in? 24p/f? 30p/f? 1080i?

What are you shooting in what kind of light?

How are you using the two cameras. Are they shooting separate scenes that will be edited together, are you shooting muli-camera, or are you just using whichever is available when you need it?

What role does the HV20 play in all of this?

Answers to these questions will help give suggestions.

24p

What are you shooting in what kind of light?

Daytime "ecstatic dance" in a ballroom with pretty good window lighting.
Water massage in a translucent geodesic dome.
An interchange between 2-4 people in a living room at night with relatively low-wattage lights.

How are you using the two cameras. Are they shooting separate scenes that will be edited together, are you shooting muli-camera, or are you just using whichever is available when you need it?

My post was prompted by the need for multi-camera scenes -- but your expanded question -- ie, whichever is available when needed -- could be true as well.

What role does the HV20 play in all of this?

The HV20 filling in for one of the 3-chip cameras.
