$15,000 to spend on a video camera. How do I spend it?
Alright, So I have $15k to spend on a video camera system. What I really want to do is get a system that will bring my videos and capabilities to the next level. I currently have a Panasonic HMC-40, a lovely shotgun mic, and a tripod. I was thinking about getting the following....

Sorry if thats confusing. I really would like the FS700 just because of its slow motion capabilities, But seeing things like the black magic camera also make realize that i could get three black magic cameras for the price of the fs700. If anyone has an opinion I would love it :)
