I haven't dealt with miniDV in like two years. And it's terrible that I forget it but I will tell ya this: Firewire or USB, your camera's resolution isn't going to change.

It's a consumer miniDV camcorder and it's not meant for anything spectacular.

480i, if I can remember this correctly, is 320x240. A good way to test this is to download VLC media player, bring some of your footage into that and select a deinterlace method from the drop-down menu. Select DISCARD.

The frame should shrink to 240p

Light. Lots of it wherever you shoot. Digital Video needs light.

Umm, yes, it does matter. I used my USB cable that came with my SONY camera, and it drops frames like crazy if you try to capture at 720x480 which is standard MiniDV at a 4:3 aspect ratio. If I used firewire, the only thing that would cause it to drop frames would be my dad's crappy dell laptop when I had to use it.

720x480 should be default.

Yes. I tried it and that is why I got firewire. I was in your shoes at the time. It really improves the quality too. I don't really know about color loss...

nope.

480i is 720x480 interlaced. 480p is 720x480 progressive. I capture at 480i with my camera and firewire. It looks very good, especially after rendered as an MPEG-2 at DVD quality. It gets rid of the digital look. When things move really fast, you can see the horizontal lines in the video before it is rendered.

Hate to say it, but you're wrong. Your Pentium 4 system is why it drops frames. Although video cameras generally stream over Firewire, if you can do it over USB2.0 then it's fine.

Andromeda uses USB2.0 and destroys your Consumer grade camera.

Nothing gets rid of the digital look. Digital footage will look liek digital footage until you spend upwards 4k on a Camera. Don't tell him things that aren't true.

720x480 is 16:9 480. 640 X 480 is 4:3.

Interlaced MiniDV format is 4:1:1 640x480.

Interlaced fields are comprised of half the resolution. Unless your camera can rip a 480p field from 60i, it's being produced by 320 1/3ccd's. I'll be happy to be corrected with sources, as I haven't even touched a MiniDV tape in like two years but from what I can remember... this is mini DV.

When I capture video on my "P4 System" it has never dropped a frame. Even while rendering video. Sorry but you are wrong there. I was talking about my dad's laptop. It is a dell with 512 mb of ram and a P4 @ 3.05ghz...

nothing of my camera captures at 640x480. That is a typical screen resolution, but not a MiniDV resolution. The video captured to the SD card in my mom's digital camera is 640x480 MJPEG.

I will go look around. I am almost positive that it is 720x480 4:3 aspect. I will take some screenies for you too...

Standard definition is 4:3. MiniDV is Standard Definition. MiniDV 4:3 is 640x480. 720x480 is NOT 4:3.

AGain, I'll reiterate that I can capture from Andromeda which is more than a measely 25mbit miniDV rate via USB2.0.

I don't need screenies. I've been toying with video cameras since they took VHS tapes.

idk why we are fighting about resolutions. that has nothing to do with the thread.

Google:
Mini DV Resolution 640x480
&
Mini DV Resolution 720x480

Look at 640's results and all the resolutions there are talking about the still pictures taken and saved to an SD card.

Look at 720's results and it is talking about the video's resolution...

You win. How is that?

It's not about winning, it's about misinforming the masses and you're misinforming him based on what you think versus what you know.

720x480 is 16:9 and is NOT 4:3. Period.

Firewire won't make your DV quality better. Period.

Travel to a real video forum and start spouting that. Get laughed off the forum for not informing yourself.
