Using V1U, 24p in camera or in post-production?

I know some similar postings have occurred here and I've read them, and it seems like if you're going for 24p, you should go for the 24p setting in-camera as you be less likely to get the "ghosting" effect. But I've heard that you lose lines of resolution if you shoot in 24p that you can't regain if you wanted. Also, I've heard it said that if you ever wanted to go to film with your footage, you should shoot in 60i. I'm just wondering then if it'd be better to shoot in 60i if ever planning on going to film. Anything to those comments?

All the 60i information only applies to the older Z1U, which didn't have a progressive sensor. With the V1U, shoot 24p, edit 24p, master to 24p, that is the best solution.

Excellent news, thanks. I love the look when I've run run my v1u 24p footage through Cineform Neo (just using the trial right now but purchasing very soon), and I just wanted to be sure that I was following a process that was also the most useful in the future. I'm assuming the same answer applies to the Canon HV20 (which I'm planning on purchasing alone with the V1U)?
