Before I ask my question, I wanted to state that I have seen some different footage shot on the RED- some on DVD, and some on Youtube. The RED in my opinion is interesting, but overrated in the context of replacing 35mm which was what I was informed was the purpose of the RED. Some footage from the RED looks like it strangely elusively changes from 16mm to 35mm as I'm watching it....so strange. Anyone noticed this?

Anyway, I plan on shooting a spec soon, and I have a choice between a Panasonic HVX200 with P2 cards for HD, or the RED. I'm not sure which I should choose. Does the lighting for each camera have to be set up differently because of the differences in each camera? An example being, if a scene were to have specific types of lights, diffusion, white bounces or whatever for the HVX, would the lighting set up for the RED(strength/effects of the light) remain the same if I were to take the RED away and suddenly put an HVX in, to assume the only different between each camera wouldn't concern the actual required lighting set up because it would only concern the camera itself(including the produced aspect ratio, resolution, definition, or whatever)?
