the only advice i have is this..

MicroMV appears to be a sony-only technology. that reason alone would be enough to cause me to lean towards getting a MiniDV camera.

DV Digital Video
Mpeg2 = Standard Digital Video Compression for Cable TV, and Sat TV.

I would say that the real determiners would be how much Video can be stored and what features are importand to you.

Most of the time it's got a diffrent name and all that's really for is to not pay Royaltys to someone so they make some modifications enhance something and call it something else.

Don't be decieved by a name. Look at Microsoft's WMP's vs MP3's really no sound diffrence and a bit better compression.

VCD's are Mpeg4 / DiviX

You decide what features you like, warranty, etc., and buy it. I prefer to check out what others who've purchased the product feel about it.

Opps forgot to answer your question. Since Mpeg2 is a Digital Video compression then it's still Digital Video or DV; so they are the SAME.:cool:

Hey, e-mail me and I'll go over all this stuff with you... Just no time now, as I'm on my lunch break.

I work with these cams all day long and know a pretty good amount about them...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
