The W5 I've tried.. It did HORRIBLY in low light.. That's an understatement actually. My 3 yr old Sony P71 did a better job..lol.

The 610.. I'm not totally sure.. I tried the camera for a few weeks.. I played initially with it.. All I remember was it was clearer than the W5.

In My opinion, the Fuji F10 will give you the image and build quality your looking for with low light capability. I also just did a comparison on a video I took with my F10 indoors and steve's indoor video, and they both had a little grain, and little to no noticable compression artifacts. Both 640x480 30FPS MJPEG. However, the F10 can hold 15 minutes on a 1GB chip at maximum quality, while the A610 could hold 10 minutes. The only advantage of the A610 IMO is aperture and shutter priority, cheaper cards, and a lens that has slighly more zoom with a faster F-stop.

are these relatively cheap cameras such as the A610 , nikon 7900 the sony W5 or the Casio Z750 able to record acceptable movies in normal light indoors?
I can answer your question only for the Z750. I've been pleasantly surprised by the indoor movies without special lighting. They have all come out very well.
