What format should we choose ???

I have a company from US to shoot some video for me. He is shooting with HVX200 in USA (NTSC-version), and I need to convert the footage to 1920x1080 25P to match a Final Cut project in Europe.

My question. Will i be best if he shoots 1080i60 DVCPRO HD or if not, which format is better to make the conversion from?

Yes, of course....

I agree with Robin 24p would be better as you could then just play it back at 25fps.
