Which cameras under 5k have 10bit out on HDMI
Just trying to find which cameras costing around $5k or less output 10bit from an HDMI output so I can look up some reviews. Many that I've looked into only offer 8bit output to HDMI or DVI

Reason: Not clear enough
From what I've seen so far, most of the sub $5k cameras output 8bit. I think it depends on your intended use whether that's an issue or not. If you're doing compositing I would think 4:2:2 sampling would be more important than 10bit. If you'll notice, the original HDCAM is 8 bit 4:2:2.
You need to find one that supports HDMI 1.4, which is the only version of HDMI that has 10 bit output.
Don't know of any. Now SDI is another story.
I think the Sony FS100 has 10 bit HDMI output.
