Perone, Does not that depends on your final use?
Some of us do not want/need huge RAW Video files. If your highest use is DVD or even BlueRay for viewing on TV, even DNxHD 36 might be overkill, but the minimum 220 MegaBytes per second of the BM is just way too much to deal with.
I only use a Shuttle II for one reason: Uninterrupted recording. I erase those huge files as soon as I have converted them.
I also use the D800 primarily for my "Home Movies", but enjoy all the other attributes of these cameras too. And, the BlackMagic makes a lousy still camera.
