I don't understand the "RAW recording to Prores and DNxHR" bit. Neither of those are "raw" codecs. What do you mean by this?
Wait, who is spouting the "pretentious rubbish"?
It's a big deal because choosing your lens if just as important as choosing your camera. If you want to look no further than bitrate and codec, more power to you. But the suggestion that those are the only important considerations is terribly ignorant.
^ the AF100 was what I meant, not the hvx.
I don't know, Panasonic are generally pretty solid when it comes to acquisition codecs. The hvx100 (or whatever it was called) that recorded in AVCHD is the only exception I can think of in their recent low-pro history.
Erm... Predecessor to the DVX? I think you mean successor.
As did I, about 8 years ago :)
