"Pro Video Coalition" is a prosumer corporate video site and those tests were a complete joke by any measure. I think I'll go with the A.S.C. guys.
I think this is a great camera for students, the fact that you get all those features for what I paid for an HVX 6 years ago or so. The fact that you WILL need to grade on a regular basis will make sure students are somewhat forced to get the practice they need, couple that with learning how lenses and sensor sizes coincide with eachother. If BM came out with a good ranged zoom specifically for this camera that would also help, I imagine it will kind of be like when the dslr wave started (shorts full of CU's). I think this is in a market that is below RED and shouldn't effect them too much, the people buying RED's would see this and know that it's features wouldn't suffice for what we want. All in all though, it's a pretty damn good image for the $$.
Well said, Nicholas. For personal (nary financed) projects, this will be an imminently useful tool, for the price!
Just an update: actual raw footage was posted recently (today?) on John Brawley's site. The "RAWness" work like stills (recovery, clarity, fill, etc.) and is a really great, straight-foward implementation. It seems to recover a hell of a lot of "overexposed" material...
I am thinking about still buying one even tho I just spent like 15k on red gear.. first world problems lol...
