I purchased the Sanyo VPC-HD1 and was very disappointed with it's low light performance. I have since sold the unit.

So, I'm now looking for a decent camcorder (not HD) that shoots well under low light conditions. I would consider MiniDV, Hard Drive or Digital 8 types of camcorders.

I'm looking for a camcorder in the $400 to $700 price range.

Any recommendations?

thx in advance!

(Fixed the link.) I suggest you check out some camcorder sites ... For example, go to http://www.camcorderinfo.com and search for camcorders with Low Light Performance rating greater than 7, and check out the reviews on the models that fit your price range.

Try this site:

http://www.consumersearch.com/www/ph...ers/index.html

Check the "all Reviews" link. They have a "reviewing the reviewers" section that lists pretty much every major website that has reviews for a product. The list for digital cameras for instance has imaging-resource.com, dcresource.com. dpreview.com, and this site as the top 4.

A very usefull site for any product research.

I got the Sony HC96.. you'll find some of my reviews of it on many sites.. This camera does exceptionally well in low light.
