it really all depends on the lens of the camera. some lenses allow lower f-stops than others. when looking at the specs of a camera look for that figure. the lower the f-stop or aperture the more light the lens can let in therefore making it better for lower light shooting.
combined with the f-stop you can could change the iso setting. the higher the iso the lower the light you can shoot in. but the higher you set the iso the more noise or grain you'll have in the photo.
hope this helps.
I really don't like the look of a flash, but I'm also not very good at "tweaking"...I was wondering....is there a camera that I can just pick up and use that doesnt require a flash to auto-focus in low light situations? My past history with digital cameras has been that everytime I use a flash, it looks sourcey and hot in the middle but if I dont use a flash its out of focus. My film camera has a lens on it that almost NEVER requires me to use a flash...Do some digital cameras have lower "stops" on them? Sorry...I'm a noob. Any recommends??
Money really isn't an object.
