Just wanted to share my experience this past week. I filmed for a producer/DJ while he was in Chicago for a few shows. I shot all RAW at 1920x818 at 23.976 a few 48fps. I was trying to save as much hard drive space as I could as I was always filming something. I think I'm going to have to come to terms to having a ton of hard drives for shoots like this or maybe not shooting RAW (EEEK). 

Let me know what you guys think! :)

No, stick with Raw, it's great!  But I can see how in this style of shooting, you're going to accumulate a lot of data; maybe review footage daily and discard what you don't want?  Good fun film!  I might add the fisheye works for me indoors, but I found it a bit disconcerting outdoors, IMO I would stick to ~24mm there.

For the quickest, space saving ML raw workflow, I mount the cf card with MLVS and use slimraw to copy lossless compressed cdngs to my hard drive. This reduces the raw storage requirements by 2/3 with zero loss in quality.
