I have no clue were your going with that because your dead wrong!!! Why do you think prosumer cameras use MINI DV and not DVD'*? Do not get a DVD camera they are the WORST! I have 2 MINI DV cameras Sony HDR-Z1U and Canon GL2(Canon sucks by the way) and have had no problems with them. I work with tons of MINI DV cameras no problems.
