Is there any reason to use 720p30p as my recording setting vs 720p30pn if I'm trying to maximize
the recording time available on P2 cards?

End use is primarily for DVD and web, but the non-profit I'm creating the video for would also like
to be able to offer the video for free to local PBS stations to help promote their organization's community activities.

I'm editing in FCP Classic 6 on DVCProHD timeline to match the camcorder's codec.

I've never shot anything on this camcorder using the 720p30pn setting except for a brief test today.

Any helpful advice will be much appreciated.

720p is a 60 frame format. If you shoot 720p30...it'll have the 30 frame LOOK, but still be 60fps. Each frame will be doubled. HOwever, if you shoot 30pN, that means NATIVE, so it'll record only 30fps...doubling the amount of footage you can shoot.

720p24pN shoots 24fps..
