mini dv quality

Can anyone tell me if mini dv footage when imported into FCP via a bottom of the range camera or top of the range camera...is any different in quality

So long as the outputs are of comparable construction quality, there shouldn't really be any difference, as neither camera can improve on the original recording quality.

Exactly. Additionally some consumer miniDV's are controllable by the NLE over the firewire connection. One example is my Sony DCR-TRV30 which is fully remote controlled over firewire by my Avid DV Pro system as if the TRV30 was a miniDV deck. I could even do an assemble edit back out to the camera in the unlikely case that I wanted to go that route.
Whether you use a $200 camera or a $20,000 camera the firewire connection will give you an identical one ot one copy of the video with no camera doing it better than another
