First feature help

Hi, some friends and I are making our first feature film, using a Sony HD camera and Sony Vegas Pro 8.0 for editing. We have no plans to output the film in HD format, but we are wondering if we should record in HDV or Standard DV. Will the HDV format give us a better picture? Also, are there any drawbacks to using Vegas to edit a feature?

Always shoot in the highest resolution you can. It gives you more options in post. Shoot in HDV and capture in DV. (Most Sony HDV cameras allow for DV output).
