To Russ Stiggants: Your closed-mindedness precludes you from really seeing the big picture here. For cost-to-quality ratio, these DSLR cameras provide, a gateway for many low/no-budget filmmakers to finally achieve cinematic looking HD video without the high price tag. Personally, it sounds like you're intimidated by the technology. And it's not just low/no-budget filmmakers adopting DSLR. The show 24 has been using the 5D Mk II and 1D Mk IV for their shows. Lucas Film is even interested in the 5D2 and is working with Philip Bloom to shoot a movie using just the 5D2 itself. Is the camera perfect? Heck no. But does it offer some features and functionality that even dedicated HD/4K cameras can't provide? Yes, it can. Comparing/dismissing DSLRs to a RED or an F35 or whatever your flavor is , is a waste of time and bandwidth. They're just completely different beasts at different cost ratios for different purposes. I think you'd be very surprised how much DSLR footage you've actually seen and haven't even realized it.
