MXF is much more popular and becomes a worldwide file format as the development of the various camcorders, like Sony XDCAM, Panasonic P2, HVX200 and Canon XF300/XF305, etc. However, using .mxf footage on Mac is a big problem for people that are not familiar with the MXF format.

ProRes is a lossy video compression format developed by Apple Inc. for use in post production that supports up to 4k. It is the successor of the Apple Intermediate Codec and was introduced in 2007 with Final Cut Studio 2. ProRes is a line of intermediate codecs, which means they are intended for use during video editing, and not for practical end-user viewing. The benefit of an intermediate codec is that it retains higher quality than end-user codecs while still requiring much less expensive disk systems compared to uncompressed video.
