Honestly I'm not a codec expert. I went crazy this year in comparing cameras and whatnot. It's really hard to say "All else being equal." because it's not. It's completely irrelevant to compare just codecs because there's so much more that goes into the quality of the image.

About the best you can do is look at still images from different cameras and see the differences.

I will say, in my limited research, the HDV image is probably the lowest quality image you'll see. However, HDV cameras are consistently being used as b-cameras and even a-cameras for broadcast television.

I'd look at budget and workflow and specific needs above all else.
