Long before you get all bent out of shape about what will codec will offer you super duper image quality I would be more concerned about establishing a common frame rate for the majority of all the elements.

Any frame rate conversions will be a major part of the workflow in the long run.
Given the amount of low res source crap you already have to deal with you need to seriously address avoid recompressing it over and over again. Maybe you could consider off lining in dvcproHD or photo jpeg then uprezzing to uncompressed if and when you need to for a film out.

Graeme is just telling it like it really is regardless of what others say. You personally have to decide what you can really afford versus what how good an image quality you want to retain if and when you do a film out.

FYI everyone doing a project always dreams of a filmout but once they figure out the cost and workflow involved that "vision" it easily goes out the window for all but the serious.

If I was really concerned about image quality I would shoot dvcproHD instead of HDV. The Varicam is not the only option for dvcproHD as the HDX 900 and HVX-200 are options.
