Best ProRes for C300 footage?

Of course XQ is 100% overkill, it's for full 444 RGB 12bit sources, alexa/red/c500 etc.

The C300 outputs a 4:2:2 8bit signal, 

-ProRes HQ is 10bit 4:2:2 220mbps

-ProRes 422 is 8bit 4:2:2 145mbps

So 422 is the most suitable and efficient codec for the C300, while HQ will provide a slightly higher bit-rate but false 10bit so un-necessarily bigger files. 

Anyway I'd choose 422, and HQ if I am a bit OCD wanting the highest bitrate to be sure and don't mind size. They look identical from the C100.

*by the way a file is

1Gb in XQ,

500mbs is HQ,

350mbs in 422.
