Raphael has pointed you totally in the right direction for the FCP editing workflow. ProRes is the way to go for your DSLR footage.

For the standard DVD you can use DVD Studio Pro but that does not support BluRay.
I went through this process a while ago, needing to make a BluRay for a short film I made shot on 5DMKII. I tried Toast but kept getting errors with encoding or burning fails. I did manage to produce 1 disk but I must have wasted 4 or 5 doing so.
In the end I went for Adobe Encore which was a lot more stable than Toast and while not perfect allowed me to make BluRays with much more reliability.
It is not so different from DVD studio that its a huge learning curve.
Luckily my wife was a student at the time so we used the educational discount to buy it which was a great deal. You could consider the Adobe Cloud option too to spread the cost.
I got a small portable Samsung BluRay burner model SE506 - its not the fastest drive but really has been very reliable.
While it would not be the perfect set-up for serious BluRay authoring it does allow me to make disks with proper menus pretty easily and reliably. I generally only do one offs or perhaps 2 or 3 copies at most, but at that level it has worked out very well.
The disks play reliably and look great.
Hope that helps.

best wishes
