It depends on a lot of factors. If by "pro digital camera," you mean something like a Varicam or F900, then that's probably not adequate. If you mean something more along the lines of an F23, Genesis, D21, or possibly RED, then you'll be fine. At that point, you'll do alright with any choice VFX-wise, so the question of format is really up to aesthetics, budget, and workflow.

I'm really more of a 2d guy, and most of my 3d knowledge is oriented towards that. I also prefer using XSI for 3d. Why do you ask?

I'm wondering about getting a fully articulated, high point count, gray alien wire frame that's ready to run in Maya.

Ah, sorry, I can't help you out too much with that. I wish I knew some modelers; I tend to hang out with other 2d people =/
