Light is necessary for any picture. Sony has developed new techniques that allow less light getting in to still produce an adequate image, but it is skimping on the materials to save costs. JVC doesn't have anything that "wows" me, but that is just my opinion. I would suggest trying them both out in store to get a feel for how they perform.
Hi! I am on the lookout for a Flash Memory type camcorder. The JVC GZ MS 130 and the Sony DRC x60 are the contenders. Which one should I settle for? Which has better build quality, which works better in low light conditions? Does the fact that the Sony has a 1/8" sensor compared to the JVCs 1/6" sensor make a vast difference?
