Default Convert DV format to what?

Hello All, Yes Iím a Newbee here and to video, although I am a professional photographer by trade.

I just got done importing 28 mini DV tapes of family movies, almost 300GB. I just used Appleís iMovie to import and it saved as a .DV file format. I would like to do two things,

First: Convert the .DV format to something that I can stream to my PS3, would I be better off just converting the files or compressing them to another format.

Second: I wan to eventually edit the movies, using either FCP or Premiere Pro to make menu driven DVDís for the family.

So is there a lossless conversion file format so I can stream/play on the PS3, that has the same quality for editing for DVDís down the road. BTW, I have MAC and PC FCP & Premiere Pro and on the PC side I have Premiere Pro. I might have access to Sorenson Squeeze.

Next Question:
I have an old Hi8mm camcorder that I think still works, how can I digitize that video too? Could I hook up the Hi8 camera to the SD camera and record from there?
