Which downres is better: "HDV to DV" Vs. "HDV to DVCAM"

Apologies if this question has been asked before.

I am in the post production phase of my project which sits on about 10 HDV tapes. The project was shot on the JVC HD100, 720 res, and 24 frames/s.

My question is: Which down conversion is better "HDV to DV" or "HDV to DVCam"?

My intentions for the project:
- I want a DVD end product
- This project is not intended for broadcast
- I am looking to enter it into film festivals.
- I used the HDV format, knowing that we will downres it to SD when outputting on DVD.


The reason for the down ressing is that I do not own the camera or the editing equipment (actually I am not editing it myself, nor do I intend to). The editors I have talked to so far, favor the downres (with a matching timecode).

recapping the question: My question is: Which down conversion is better "HDV to DV" or "HDV to DVCam"?

Any feedback on the above is appreciated.

--cheers
Sam

Well, DV and DVCAM have identical picture quality. Probably easier to get matching TC with DVCAM though....
