Shooting and Archiving Stock Footage

Hello,

I have decided to begin using some of my free time to shoot some stock footage of some of the Cities and various locations in my area. I do not know exaclty what I will do with this / when I will use it but I figure that Harddrives are cheap enough now it would be benificial to have footage lying around at all times.

I will be shooting with my HVX-200. I am wondering what Format I should be shooting in to give me the best Flexibility for future projects.

1080i/30p
1080i/60i
720p/30p
720p/60p

The type of projects these may be used in:
Documentaries, corporate videos, commercials, news stories, internet media.

If I shot in 1080i/30p I could always down-convert and crop the footage for what ever projects may need it?
What format would the stockfootage companies start with? (Although I relize they are using more expensive camera's)

Thank you,
Dale W

I wouldn't shoot in 720.

If you aren't on a specific assignment, I'd shoot each shot (or series of shots at a given location) twice.

Once in 1080 24p and once in 1080i 59.94

That gives you options to sell to both the indie-film market or for television.

Just my $0.02
