Wow, good question, Jason. I've never seen one, but that doesn't mean it's not out there.

I usually use two DV decks or a deck and a camera and connect them with a 4-pin to 4-pin firewire cable. I like your dual deck idea much better.

cameras are like $300 on eBay though.

Possibly an advantage of a deck is that you can control how the timecode gets copies (i.e. make new continuous timecode, or copy the timecode exactly so two people can edit off the same timecodes).
