You should buy a RED Weapon Helium 8k.

It has amazing image quality and the versatility of high resolution capture makes this the cinema camera to beat these days.


The new Sony Venice is also an excellent camera if you work on high end commercials or features.


Step down pick: The Panasonic Varicam LT is an often overlooked, but extremely capable camera in between high end camcorders and a top tier cinema camera.


Indie pick: Go with a Canon C200 or Panasonic EVA-1.
