I'm doing some shooting for someone who doesnt know what frame rate he wants the final piece in. My logic then is to shoot in 1080 60i so i can easily change to either one? Does that logic make sense?

I'd suggest 1080/24p if you aren't sure what you're output format will be- it's easily converted to just about anything. 60i works pretty much best as only 60i- converting it to other formats is highly labor intensive and generally results in quality loss in doing so.

I agree. The 24p footage can easily be converted to just about any standard framerate via the optically familiar 3:2 pulldown. A lot of folks call a 24p master the "univeral master" for just that reason.
