There's no difference in resolution and you can record using MiniDV tapes in DVCam format cameras like the DRS570. The PD 150 has the option of recording on either format - the recording time is shorter on DVCam. Both use 25Mb/sec.
Although I suspect the higher tape speed would make DVCam less prone to drop out, this format's tapes are thicker than DV tapes, making them more robust for VT editing.
