I have only one thing to say about this stupid dvxuser vs reduser debate; I could easily pick hundreds of videos from vimeo that has been shot with DSLR that are better in every way than 99% of the videos posted on "SHOT ON RED" section of this forum. It's not the camera, it's the person behind the camera.
Just want to add a note about the post production debate here:
Most of the industry is still cutting on AVID. That is more due to hardware legacy at post-houses, than it is due to anything else, but that's still a fact.
Premier is currently the best tool for RED footage, but also generally speaking, Adobe offers the best all-around post-production package and the most bang for the buck.
Apple, on the other hand, seem to have shifted their focus from the professional market to the consumer market, and for very good reasons. For them, currently, that's where the money is.
In my opinion, investing in Apple professional software (FCP, Logic Pro) would be a mistake, as Apple seems to have quietly dropped the professional market. The Adobe workflow is completely render free up-to final delivery, even across the various applications in their package. They even include FCP and AVID keyboard layouts, so that editors can edit the way they are used to from the other platforms. 10 years ago there was a time when Premiere was slow and problematic for professional purposes.
That time is now long gone. Like Jim always say, everything in life changes. You'd better keep up and keep yourself informed, if you want to remain relevant.

Yes yes, inexperienced, fully agree with you there. 10 years is nothing, and that isn't meant to be sarcastic. But I would rather gather as much experience as possible with every camera system out there, as appose to limiting myself to one. But that's just me.
Whats the point of this if no one learns anything come on guys my shout who wants a beer
I said vimeo because the best creative work is shared on that site, but I could have also included youtube or any other site people use to upload their work to.
I don't buy camera based on vimeo videos. This comment was about people here treating other sites like they are place for lower quality work.
Is evertyhing black and white for you? I didn't insult anyone. If A is better than B it doesn't mean B is bad. B can still be good, it's just not as good as A.
You are Right Jim, i am 100% with you .
A lot of us have got enough of these stupid test !
Let s make a real test, of all the camera , made by some real pro choosen and control by each company .( i definitely think the test have to be supervised by each company by some famous talented DOP, and high level post production company for the final color correction )
That will be a very helpful real test , not a stupid one we are getting used to have !!!
