Default DV HD camcorder to pinnacle 10...........

Is there any way of mantaining video quality when transfering form a camera hard drive to pinnacle for editing and rendering? I tried a new hard drive type video camera the other day and as I like to edit home movies, tried to do just that. Playback on my tv was terrible. No where near the clearity of mini-dv camcorder. I'm told it has something to do with compression at the hard drive capture stage. If there a way to render a hard drive camera recording and hold it's original visual quality?

Sorry if this is an old topic.....I am brand new here.

please clear this up first....
what kind of camera u have?
mini dv doesnt use harddisk. u either have a mini dv camera. or a harddisk based camera...

u can maintain the quality of harddisk based camera after editing...
but u can never get same quality as mini dv after u encode to other format... like mpeg2 for dvd.
