That's untrue, please do not mislead people.
DVCAM is very close to DV; (a) 50% higher track pitch, track width, and tape speed; (b) 1/3 shorter run times per tape length; (c) defaulting to locked audio; and (d) no support for LP mode.
Thanks

Juan is right. The data format of DVCAM, DV SP and DV LP are all identical - you get the same 1's and 0's. DVCAM is recorded to tape differently which is supposed to provide data integrity, and it has locked audio. Adam Wilt has a nice chart on his site that compares the different formats:

Vegas 6's 24p render is sweet. They really bumped it up a notch.

But Vegas 5's 24p render is very good, too. Not sure why anyone would think it was horrible.
