camcorder less than about US$1,300 that will provide "good" low light capabilities.

Either turn on the lights or use a video light with the consumer cams on your list or increase your budget.

Camcorders that behave OK in low light have lenses larger than 43mm diameter and imaging chips 1/3" or larger.

Least expensive that meet both criteria are:
Standard definition: Canon GL2, Panasonic AG-DVX100, Sony DCR-VX2100
High definition: Sony HDR-FX1000
They go up from here.

The cameras on your list have essentially the same sized lenses and imaging chips. They will all behave about the same in low light.

much will change - soon or ever. Big lenses = lot of glass. They are expensive. Big imaging chips are not as easy to make as the smaller chips. They are expensive. If you wait, you will not be learning what a camcorder *can* do and you will be no recording whatever it is you wanted to record. Can you use a video light?
