Any video camera buffs out there?

I want to start using more video to enhance my casting analysis and provide better feedback to my students.

I want to be able to use the video on the web, view it at high resolution on my PC or Mac, and possibly even record it on VHS or DVD media so I can send it to friends.

I especially like the DVD approach because you can provide a navigable table of contents.

My questions are:

- what resolution should I be looking for to be acceptable for use in making video that does not look like crap on VHS or DVD?

- is a memory card video camera better than a tape video camera?

- do I need wide-angle?

- I would prefer polarization to capture some fishing video as well, how do I know the camera is compatible with such a filter?

I assume I can always reduce for the web from a higher res so no prob on the web video provided I buy some software to convert it.

Any other suggestions? thanks in advance
