I'm looking at buying a camera/video camera.  I can't decide on wether to get the 1080 50i/50p or 1080 60i/60p model.  I know I can use software to convert between the different recording formats.  However, if most of my video is for use in the USA would it be easier to purchase the 60i/60p model vs. the 50i/50p model?  Will this save on possible artifacts when editing the video (converting 50i/50p for playback in the USA)?  or is there really no difference?


My instinct tells me to record in the native format I want to use for playback.
