And the work they might do, would it make the vimeo version any better? With my 5GB limit I could upload a version at 330Mbps. But wouldn't vimeo still make a mess of it?

There's NOTHING to be gained by rendering out to anything beyond ProResLT IF you have the camera in live view video mode. That imposes a limit of 100 mbps to enable CF card recording of live video rates.

If, however, you're shooting still frames and assembling them into video output later, using a higher quality transcoding schemes should definitely preserve more quality - but at a big price in storage and editing horsepower at some point. Sooner or later you're going to have to transcode into SOMETHING that you can edit with - AND that the common user can view.

So the choice is GOING to come about when to "dumb down" the stream and how much "dumb" is required by YOUR system in order to maintain footage quality that you can store, manage and edit.

Good luck.
