importing 1080-30p from Canon XH A1 into FCP 6.0.6

Read a similar thread; having problems importing footage shot in 1080 30F.
What are the settings for this? Canon manual has something confusing to say: "30F Mode: Records in 30 fps mode and outputs signals converted into 60 fps interlaced. Video output from the HDV/DV terminal will be in 30p."
So, it's converting to 60fps and reconverting to output at 30p?!!

No FCP setting seems to match up with the 30p; tried DVCPRO HD 1080p30, a codec I thought was specifically for Panasonic not Canon, and did not work. Should I be able to import it at 60i?
Tried HDV, Firewire basic, etc.
Also confused by separate sequence, capture, and device control presets.

Would like to be able to intercut clips imported with footage shot on Panasonic as well...

Do I have to convert everything to ProRes? How do I do that?
Grateful for any help with this...
