Re: Should I tape in widescreen or regular

The only difference you have to worry about is a setting on your camera and your editing software, so that shouldn't take you a year.

Another option is to shoot in 4:3 with most of the action happening in a 16:9 frame for letterboxing later, but if you're not going to utilize the whole frame then what's the point?

I'd just stick with 16:9 regardless of how your camera does it cuz you're going to drop in quality just by putting it onto DVD anyway. So make sure you keep your DV masters. And if you do any actual editing within the footage you shot I would spit that back out at full res to DV on your camera again and save that as your edited master.
