I'm just getting into video recording and video editing and I'm looking for a recommendation on a camera for filming in low light. I'd rather spend <$500 usd to start out. Basically I'm going for a similar effect found in this video. I don't plan on taking videography too far, just mostly for clips/playthroughs of things I write. The guy in the video told me he uses a canon rebel t5i and 1 softbox light. With all the cameras on the market and my lack of knowledge just thought I'd see what you guys' thoughts are. Thanks!
No expert mate, but I have a Canon XLH1 that shoots in low light very well indeed. I used to do a lot of live stage recording and In manual mode the low light abilities of the XL really came into their own. I have a pair of XA10’s, much newer but no where near as good in low light, those thre CCD’s and big lens make a difference.
