Lesser of capture evils

What is the lesser of the two evils?
A) Capture lossless AVI 4:2:2 at 640x480
B) Capture MPEG2 4:2:0 at 720x480 with high bit-rate
Just wondering.

I’ve not had any issues with stretching, breaking, or snapping. I see discoloring/dirt on the pec pad. That being said I do not disagree with your general critique.
