I have owned a Sony (Digital 8) TRV120E for about 4 years. On the whole it does a pretty good job, but one thing it is disappointing at is with indoor conditions under tungsten of flourescent lighting. I am no expert with these things, but I imagine the loss of quality is down to the fact that it handles low light conditions like this by amplifying the signal, producing a lot of digital noise and overall loss of colour. Outside or in good light the colours are bright, digital noise is minimal and the results are generally very acceptable. I am now being increasingly asked to use my camcorder for videoing live events indoors. Using addtional lighting is not an option, so I was wondering what sort of camcorder specification should I be looking at to work better in these sort of conditions without any trade off in other areas? Four years on I know that specs have increased and prices have dropped, but is this sort of camcorder available for a budget of under £1000? Any help or suggestions of models to take a look at would be much appreciated.
