There is no camera in that price range that will function well in low light.
Perhaps you can add more light with photo-flood lamps for video or flash for still shots.
Just about any digital camera or camcorder can make videos that look OK on youtube.
Even if you submit 1080p video to youtube, they will compress it to lower the file size.
That compression will lower the quality of the video too.
If you are mainly going to make videos, you should look for a camcorder.
If you are mainly going to make still photos, you should look for a digital camera.
No camera does both, equally well.
I am looking to start recording videos (for youtube/facebook). I would like to get a camera that will do hd 1080p video. I do not have the greatest lighting so something that can do good in somewhat low light situations would be great.
Honestly I don't know if I should be looking for a digital camera, or a camcorder that can do still shots. I've seen alot of videos on youtube of people using cameras rather than camcorders.
Anyways, anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!
