I did a lot of research and found that the HC-90 was the best when it came to low-light performance. I have taken video of campfire scenes with mine and am quite pleased. Another HC-90 owner has a site with video clips posted. I found it to be quite useful with making my purchase.
Hope this helps...Nicole
I'm new to the camcorder market but I'm looking for something that will work well in low-light (imagine the single candle on my grandaughters 1st birthday cake). But none of the reviews seem to have anything objective on this element of performance. If low-light performance is my highest priority, what camcorders should I be looking at?
