    Hi,
    I wonder if anyone can tell me what difference in quality there is between an S-VHS camera and a Mini-DV camera? Or does it depend on the cameras in question?
    Cheers
    Russ

    A lot

    SVHS is quite poor, especially with colour, DV and MIniDV are much better and do not suffer from smeary colours, they also have a lot more resolution

    SVHS is purely Y/C (luminace & chroma) DV is component (seperate colour accross individual channels)

    SVHS typically resolves at 400 lines, DV usually 480 upwards.
    SVHS degrades on each ciopy, DV stands up to more copying.

    That said a JVC KY17 shall still outperform a Sony HC series
