I have the 3800 and with it I have to a light on in the room. It is also very dim without any other light.

Try to adjust the EV up to maximum

You get the same results with both PC Cam and with Video mode. The shutter speed necessary to give adequate frames-per-second is too high for low light operation. A small flood lamp in a goose-neck lamp base would work if it was close to the subject. I think the shutter speed for both modes is probably about 1/10 sec at f/2.8.
