Go try it. There are many reviews and examples out there.
I'm looking for a camera for fieldtrips. I am a scientist studying bats of tropical regions and I want to make short outreach videos of our trips. Trips include climbing in caves and trees, extreme low light conditions (often at night with a headlamp and flashlight but not more), high humidity, filming animals flying (very fast), be able to zoom a little bit. So it has to be robust and able to resist in various conditions.
I am looking for a good image quality (no need for 4K, HD sufficient), it would be great to be able to film without holding the camera but it is not the main thing. If I can put it on a tripod or another accessory that should be fine.
I was first thinking about something like a GoPro but I am not sure about the quality in low light condition and to my knowledge, they don't offer any zoom. Some friends told me about the Sony RX100 (I was thinking about the III version) because it is good in low light and have a good video option. I also saw some small panasonic camrecorder but I am afraid about te quality in low light.
Any thoughts? Ideally I prefer to have something under 500$ but I can go up if needed (I found the RX100 at 540). Thanks!
