The DVX200 will output 10Bit 4:2:2 when using an external recorder.

DSLRs or stills cameras can potentially create awesome video, but they're not suited to quick setups. They're also not so good for live stuff or anything with one off live action. They can be really good if you've got setup time and can light and plan the shots. There not so good for pro audio or things like ND.

A proper video camera will be more suited to many things, fast setup stuff, live event stuff and controlled setups. And by proper video camera, I mean something designed ergonomically as a traditional video camera and not something whose primary function is for capturing stills.

In the same token. You can produce nice stills from many video cameras but they won't be generally as good at stills as a proper stills camera, single reflex or otherwise.

Maybe wait for the new Panasonics and see what they're like. Although, and as Ron has said, their specs are a little sketchy at the moment, their is a possibility that one of them will record internally at 10 bit.

If internal 10 bit recording is a must, then options are limited unless you go for certain higher priced models. That said, most good modern video cameras will give 10 bit output, if recording externally is an option. For shooting stuff intended for 8 bit delivery, which is most things, there's a good argument for shooting 8 bit. Certain Canon cameras will even do 4:2:2 at 8 bit.

I'm personally a fan of Sony. They do great video cameras for every price bracket.

I have BM Ursa the big one and I like it alot. Recording formats 10bit prores 422, 444 and raw. The main problem is the waight. Ursa mini is much lighter and I think ill get me one some time, 2.3kg vs 7.5kg with out battery.
I also have bm micro studio 4k with Assist 4k which is fairly light.

A lot of wedding guys are going to the Sony FS5.
A worthy little camera at your price point.

I think an FS5 with lens or lenses will be over $6500. Will only do UHD 30P as well. Could get a DVX200 and a Sony AX53 for less and get long zoom stabilized HD and 30P UHD from AX53 as well as shallow depth of field and 60P UHD from the DVX200 without the need to change lenses.
