Does Hollywood use consumer-level cameras?

I was telling how Ian Mune a famous director down under, once said in a public talk to budding young film directors to bypass the film commission, buy a good DSLR camera (at consumer not prosumer prices), plus a hard drive, and just start filming.I was interrupted by a ‘strategic project consultant’ who apparently had not heard of Ian Mune and did not believe me that Hollywood could ‘stoop so low’.

Anyway I found the whole topic quite interesting, and so without further ado, here are some references:
