I just purchased a Sony DSC-M2. While the camera does take great video and stills in lighted rooms/environments, the video quality is terrible in low light conditions. I tend to go out with my friends to lounges/bars/clubs and wanted a hybrid to take along. This one will never work.

I hear that the Sanyo VPC-C6 is better in low light, although I am a bit skeptical as to how well it will perform. I do not think there is any night vision, but I am not sure.

If this will not work, are there any hybrids out there that would do the job? Or can I get an attachment that would provide the night vision?

that's the Badboy we're talking about?

all hybrids on this forum you will read

Does not take night vision shots in video. they do have night node features for example;

1 mustek dv series night mode grains the vid big time I own 3 andall are upgraded models each one has the same grain

2 Aiptek I have two I believe the 5300 does not have it, but the Mpvr has it it may make the video Purple

now the sony should be a higher end hybrid with a carl zeiss hsd ccd lens etc. should have a low lux setting on it?

I do not know anything Much about it and do luv the camera when it came out and love to see some sample vids PLEASE!

sanyo/fisher. creative labs claim to be a better hybrid in low light situations, but I tell you. NO LIGHT NO VID and those two may take a better vid in just a octive of 1 or two shades lower that's all

Sounds depressing . they are PC camcorders not Home movie camcorders a big difference that is why a camcorder is needed and they are becoming smaller to fit in th pocket but not like the one's we show

hope I have cleared up some details

when filming you may want to look into ebay for a led light that takes a aaa battry in best buy it runs around 30.00 online 10.00 its throws 50 lux should help the filming 6 feet only

also I filmed firworks and perfect but the people were shaded too dark lol all the better., I filmed a show perfect, but when i filmed pure daylight andshaded inside can read a book in the shade the filming dark as night Lol
