How do I go about evaluating what BNC cable to purchase for hooking up my DV camera to an SD CRT production monitor? Those security camera BNC cables are quite cheap, would I lose much? Looking for like 25' or 50' lengths.

As far as video BNC cables are concerned, "all aspirins are alike". The SD video spec requires 6MHz bandwidth, which is easily met by any 50' video cable in good condition. If you are very concerned with picture quality, plan to run your interconnects as 3, 4- or 5-wire component to avoid the losses inherent in the NTSC composite system.
