Sorry mate, but I think you're getting a bit confused here. A video camera doesn't use compression when its recording. Compression only occurs when the data from the camera is transferred to hard disk in order to save space on the disk.

The camera is being held by someone, its not on a tripod or anything, and unless the camera's VTR head is dirty as crap, the video has been ran though a degradation filter to make it far less crisp and focused.
interesting, how do you differ, if its low resolution digital recording or a camera with magnetic tape ?
