The hard drive camcorders will surely allow you to shoot longer games without stopping. This advantage shows when, if you use a DV camcorder with a bottom-loading tape carriage, you have to take your tripod plate off your camcorder to swap tapes.
MPEG-2 compressed video found in many new camcorders is not harder to edit, in our opinion, but it is a bit different. The main difference is that it’s not "frame accurate", the video frames rely on surrounding frames to form the picture. So, showing off the athletes moves in a frame-by-frame slow-mo recap will be more difficult than using DV video. MPEG-2 also requires more from your computer when you edit and add effects.
