ProRes HQ is really designed for source footage that is already 10-bit, like RED or ALEXA. You will so no quality difference if you encode the footage from that camera as ProRes 422, or HQ. The only difference will be larger file sizes...and perceived of higher quality by the client (they will be more comfortable knowing it's in HQ).

Do a test for yourself...encode a shot both ways, and look at the difference. Heck, even layer them on the timeline and use a COMPOSITE MODE>DIFFERENCE to show what the differences in the shots are. You'll see completely black (if there was a difference, you'll see scraps of images where it's different).
