    I figured that some might find this interesting so here goes:

    Kudos to Philip who even after being critized non stop, finds the time to share this with the community.

    And of course thanks to Dan Moran for his hard work.

    Am I reading this right?
    BMCC gives you 16 Bit in RAW? Not 12 Bit?

    Correct.

    The sensor is actually 16 bit linear, recorded as 12bit DNG (log) and then unpacked back into 16 BIT in Resolve.

    With Resolve, you get everything.

    Ok. Looking at this demo of Resolve has just convinced me of the need to work in RAW and therefore the need to get a new MAC. Unfortunately Resolve 9 Lite doesn't seem to want to run on my trusty late 2008 MacBook Pro (so I'm not holding any hope for the full version running on it).

    Quick question for any Resolve users - do I need to invest in a Mac Pro or will the new Retina MacBook Pros work with RAW in Resolve 9?

    Resolve Lite is working fine on my new MBP, so I'm assuming the full version will too! It's very fast and not encountered any problems yet.
    Although it's the latest model, I haven't got the Retina. I went for the non-retina version as it's more upgradeable! I'm running 16gb RAM too

    To run any Resolve on any MBP/Mac Pro you need decent disk speed and tons of GPU.
    Since the MBP wont give you much for GPU, I say go for Mac Pro if possible.
    Find a used one. You can as old as 2008 as long as it supports 64bit OS.
    Tons of resources to get any flavor of Mac to run Resolve decent out there

    one of the best coloring videos I've seen.

    Not much to say about which Mac other than get one you can add 2 GPUs with lots of RAM (2.5GB+), a tower of course, used.
