You will probably find that high-end stock doesn't match up to DV real well. Saturation and overall smoothness of the image will be better when shot on a higher dollar format such as Beta SP or especially HD formats. For something going to film, I think you may not be perfectly happy. For corporate promos or docs, it works great.

As far as cost goes... If it is a concern, you should probably stick with footage collections from,, or places like that. It is relatively inexpensive footage (especially Digital Juice), but alot of it is still pretty decent.
