Using both Canon XF300 and XF100.
The nub of the question is whether the XF format cameras / MXF media format for clips from these cameras includes enough information that encoding to ProResHQ actually makes a difference. In other words, "a" or "b"
a) REGULAR: If the image information is not in the data from the camera, than I would rather not increase the size of ProRes files.
b) HQ: If the XF100 and/or XF300 *can* indeed make use of ProResHQ, then, obviuosly, that will be the better option for projects requiring maximum image quality.
Hoping for a response based on real technical knowledge, not just a version of "more is better".

We'd better choose the best popres according to the requirement.
Apple ProRes format comes in five versions: Apple ProRes 4444, Apple ProRes 422 (HQ), Apple ProRes 422, Apple ProRes 422 (LT), and Apple ProRes 422 (Proxy).
To get the best quality, ProRes 422 (HQ) is your best choice. Apple ProRes 422 is the most comfortable for FCP 5/6/7/X. If you want to get a smaller file, you'd better choose ProRes 422 (LT) as the best output.

Continued to tshi topic , now the Apple FCP has released a new code for FCPX : Apple ProRes 4444 XQ. If some people want to load their MXF files into FCP , then you can update your FCP to FCPX 10.1.4, which now can support MXF natively and other functions are also good
