    Res: 720 x 480 ppi
    dF/dt: 29.97 f/s
    dMB/dt: 3.4MB/s

    Therefore, in one minute, 204MB of data is tranferred. In about 4 minutes and 54 seconds, 1000MB of data has been transferred.

    I endoded a 10 second .mov file with Quicktime Pro to .dv to discover this.

    yes, you can compress the video, but you will degrading the video by a fair amount.
