[Erika Simon] "Do you recommend keeping the camera originals even after transferring the media to .mov files and working with them in FCP?"

HELL yes! Those are your master tapes. Not only do they take up MUCH less space than the converted files, thus allowing you to not need as much storage to archive them, but then you can bring them into any edit system you might need to in the future. Sure, PPro and Avid are compatible with FCP formats now...but who knows what the future might hold.

And back up that archive drive...TWO copies. Drives fail...just a matter of time.
