I'm looking at getting (another) camera. It'll be used solely for indoor situations, often with low lighting - dimly lit live DJ gigs, conferences, etc. I'm sick of the terrible performance cheap cameras seem to give - the video is often unwatchable, with heaps of noise/banding.
I haven't got a huge budget - I'd say maybe US$1500 max.
I'll spend more if I *really* *really* have to; I realise low-light pretty much infers a professional camera, but I'm curious what is out there.
Any place I go in and ask seem to have no idea at all about low light performance of their cameras, outside of recommending $6K sony/canon cameras.
I have other requirements, but I'd like to focus on advice for something that's purely good for low light. (It must have firewire, good battery life would be nice, etc).
Advice please! Thanks!
