This might have been covered already, but I'll ask anyway.

I have filmed a few things with this camera, and so far it is giving me mostly what I want. But, as I'm sure is the usual complaint with it, the graininess and gain in low light settings (especially when the actors have dark clothes on) is very frustrating.

I'm new to lenses and filters right now, so I'm slowly learning. Now, is there a lens out there or a known "trick" to help this camera achieve better results and not have as much "fuzziness" when filming in dark spots or on dark clothes? And if there are lenses out there designed for this reason, are they relatively inexpensive?

Just a quick Q. Thanks!

Does that camera have interchangeable lenses at all?

If so, try photographic glass, the best is Nokton 25mm 0,95, very fast glass, but expensive and in high demand.

Yeah um huh- that's a fixed lens camera isn't it? No lens would do anything...

Yeah, it just looked it up. Sorry, you can have sunglasses (ND), but no night vision (photomultiplier?) …
