A1 and Z1 for wedding shoot

Just posted this on the Canon XHA1 page but i may get a better response here.

Next weekend i'm shooting a wedding for some friends with my A1. Its a freebie (my wedding gift to the couple in fact) and they are adamant that it should not get in the way of my enjoyment of the event, so not much pressure. Nonetheless i want to do a professional job as fee paying work could come of it.
The groom has a Sony Z1 and will bring it along as a second camera to be locked off on a tripod most of the time i imagine. I'll be shooting the bulk of it with my Canon.
I have 3 questions:

Is it advisable to shoot interlaced with the A1 since the Z1 does not do 25 Progressive?

Will i be able to capture the Z1 tapes into FCP 6 through my A1?

If i decide to use 25p on the Canon, and 1080i on the Sony will i be able to edit in FC6 using the new timeline options that come as part of the new upgrade?

Thanks for your help.

Dom

I use both cameras. Shoot 1080i on both or your life will be miserable.

Get the Sony ahead of time so you can match the Canon to it.

You can capture 1080i on either.

Hi Dom. Please don't cross-post; it's against DVinfo policy. I removed your other thread since there were no replies, and I've moved this copy to our General HD/HDV Acquisition forum which is the correct place for discussion of cameras from different companies. But if you'd like it to be somewhere else, just let us know and a Wrangler will be happy to move it again.

Thanks for your understanding.

Fair enough Boyd.
It started out as an A1 query before drifting into a FinalCut question.
I wasn't aware there was a rule about cross posting (nearly wrote cross dressing! LOL)
Sorry about that, and thaks for moving it to its rightful location.

Oh and thanks Chuck. sounds like the sensible way to go.

BTW Chuck. How do you go about matching the two cameras?
I was planning on doing that in post but maybe you have a different system?
