The thing is, some smaller production companies have all sorts of types of clients, from micro-budget to high-budget. They can often only afford a couple of cameras, and they want to be able to say "yes" to any request that their clients might make. Low-budget clients get ProRes LT, high-budget clients that want RAW get it as well, and everyone is happy. That's why a very flexible camera like this is necessary.

I've been wanting to sell my iMac and get a laptop to make myself more mobile. After the new MBP announcement, I'm officially switching to PC after 12 years of using only Macs for editing. Soon I will be the proud owner of a Precision 7510 that is specced better than a brand new iMac, and cheaper by quite a bit.
