MiniDVCAM tape casette is physically identical to miniDV.

I originally took this deck for an example, when this phrase "miniDV can't handle more than 25Mbps"
was took as a somekind of law of nature in these boards.
DSR-85 was bulky, expensive and had 14 heads, but it was done five years ago.
This clearly shows that it would have been easy to develop miniDV mechanism from 25Mbps to at least 40Mbps,
what 720p24 needs.
In five years CPU speeds, hdd sizes, data tape storage sizes and everything else has grown at least 400%.
MiniDV tech has been frozen for a decade, mainly because AV manufacturers have consentrated themselves
to make same old stuff cheaper with still the same just acceptable quality.
