Renting is always a great option as well.

Kinefinity has launched the Terra 6k and 5K models ($6000 for the 6K model or $9000 as a package with many accessories) with 15 stops of dynamic range or 13 stops when in global shutter mode. These cameras use standard SSD drives and produce RAW or ProRes footage.
