    What video format are you guys shooting in? What is best for post-production editing in say Final Cut Pro X?

    The quality is the same, so either should really work. But, I agree it makes sense to go with MOV if you're working with Mac software.

    They are identical, but I use MP4 as it is compatible with Photoshop Essentials.
