Chuck Fryberger has used a Red One for his excellent Blu-ray climbing videos. I am not sure if he is still using that camera though.
The OP asks for recommendations $1000 and under and someone mentions a $48K camera. Good old

You obviously do not read very well. The OP asked what the pros use and he accidently wrote ďi CAN afford to have a red epic, or sony F5, or canon 1D mark CĒ. I know that he meant that he CANíT afford those cameras but he did ask what the PROs use and he asked whether Mirrorless can compete.

As far as the Pro Climbing videographers that I have seen they use cameras that cost more than $1000. However, I am willing to bet that they will give the Black Magic camera a good look. Maybe Andrew can shed some light on this better than I can if he still posts here.

I never recommended the RED camera. I simply stated that one of the best pros has used and still uses a Red camera. That answers the OPís original question.

However, I still think that the OP should look into the $1000 Black Magic camera if video is all that he wants to shoot.

If he wants to shoot videos and stills then the Panasonic, Sony, and Olympus mirrorless solutions are better for both stills and video than ANY APS-C camera that Canon has ever produced. Yet many pro photographers still use Canon APS-C cameras simply because that is what they know and they have a lot of Canon glass that they donít want to re-buy in another format.
