Most of the time its 8bit even when I use the Ninja V's. Load on EDIUS is just too much for 10bit and I do not see much difference for what I do. No real grading just little corrections to levels to match cameras. Lately I have used Vlog as the colours are better even with 8bit as I know most would recommend using 10bit for Vlog I have found 8bit fine for my uses. I think if I were to start thinking about HDR then of course it would all have to be 10bit. Since my output is mainly 80% DVD that is a little overkill. For some I have used 10bit ProRes from the Ninja V for the full stage camera as from this I could get HDR out from that as an archive. I just experimented on a few shows doing this but when time is important I have just fallen back to 8 bit allowing both camera and Ninja V to record. Backup the camera file and use the ProRes for edit.
