Picture file format for documentary

Can I use bmp or any other higher resolution format? What is the normal file format for such an endeavor?

Many modern NLEs will happily edit BMP or JPEG sequences, and if you are sure you will never want to take it to have work done on it anywhere else, then go right ahead. If you feel you may eventually want to go elsewhere with your original material, consider DPX or TIFF.
That said part of the glory of these basic formats is that they're readily convertible to almost anything else, given time and disk space.

FX guys I have worked with before usually ask for tiff's
That is what I was hoping to hear. I used tiff files in journalism, so that should be an easy format to utilize.
