Best Low Light HD Cam?
on Nov 15, 2008 at 7:28:37 pm

I shoot Sony PD150/170 or VX2000/2100 and I'm familiar with the low light capabilities; any comments relative to that baseline would be helpful.

Consider the Sony HVR-Z7U. You might also want to consider the Z5U except that while the Z5 has a magnificent 20x zoom lens with great optics, you lose maybe a couple of stops if you actually use that zoom. With the Z7 you can up the video gain to maybe +6dB without a noticeable grain penalty.

The Sony EX1 might also be a good light gatherer with its half-inch image collectors but is in another price class from the PD-170.
