Very helpful info. Thanks for replying.

I've been having some wishful thinking, hoping Sony A7s Mark III will feature 10 bit internal recording when they release it... but my guess is no. I've owned an Atomos before - I ended up selling it and using Magic Lantern instead. I loved the atomos but my 5Dm2 didn't put out a 1080p signal and didn't like lugging extra equipment around.

I'm curious, when down sampling 4k to 1080p... perhaps the 10-bit it not necessary? I have no idea how my software (Sony Vegas) downsamples / what it does. I see in project settings I can select 32 bit. I'm not exactly sure what that 32 bit pertains to? I feel as though, Resolve is the master at this stuff, but again, ug, I don't want to bring it into my workflow. I played with it and took some simple classes and feel it rendered absolutely beautiful colors. I did a few projects in it taking the RAW 14bit stuff from my 5d and rendering it to clips to stich together in Vegas.

I honestly don't believe in 4k video, mainly feel it's a marketing gemik to sell TV(s) and video discs. So I most always render to 1080p for my purposes anyways. Maybe I don't need a 10bit camera in that regard - if always down sampling from 4k?
