I'm looking for a good low light camera with a fast continous shot mode.
My Panasonic camera will take and record about 35 frames - 4MP every 20 sec. but it's not verygood in low light. I really don't want to replace it, but would like to get another camera to go with it for the low light stuff. Fuji has several with ISO of 800 & 1600 that take great photos, but they are unacceptably slow in continous mode, about 5 frames in the same 20 sec.
Does anyone have suggestions?

Thanks, Don

Many dibital video cameras have poorer results in low light. This is due to the size of the video sensor chip. Those that have better low light results tend to be larger. I think the same applies to digital still cameras.

Does a camera exist that has good low light ability? If so check the specs regarding the size of the color chip compared to those on Kodak cameras.
