My understanding is that DVCam will not produce a higher resloution than mini-DV, both use 4:1:1 sampling with resolution dependant upon the camera. However, there are advatnages to DVCam. First, you have a locked audio/video signal- ever read of people having sync issues with mini-DV? Next, the chance for drop out is less since you are using more tape to basically record the same signal or information. If it helps think of it this way: a VHS tape can record 2 hours in SP or 8 hours in EP. SP looks better because more tape is used to record the same signal. Drop outs on mini-DV could effect your DVD production since the encoder with faithfully try to reproduce an artifact or drop out you don't want. In the end I guess it depends on what you are trying to accomplish. If I have a paying client, I am using DVCam. If I am recording my son's BB game- I will use mini-DV!

Just my .02
