"It is dvcam and there for it delivers a better picture." I do not believe my eyes. DVCAM deliveres better picture than DV? This is something new. DV and DVCAM are exactly the same.
The difference between DV and DVCam is really subtle. With the compact Sonys you can only do DVCam mode with the DV tape as opposed to, say, the DSR-200 that uses a larger tape. The reason DVCam is higher quality is that it records faster (about 20% off the top of my head.) So the result is like comparing SP to LP on a VCR...you can\'t really notice the difference with your naked eye but it is there. It\'s unfortunate the DVX-100 doesn\'t have DVCam mode because with its great picture and lens it would be the perfect compact 3 chip cam.
