At the present time I am running 2 Sony pd170s and a Sony 2100e. I use all 3 cameras to film weddings and dance school productions. I love the fact that these cameras have excellent lo light capabilities, especially when filmimg dance school shows that use black- light fx and low key lighting. I have no problem seeing the dancers or actors at all under these lighting conditions. The cameras run at 4:3 format (have experimented with widescreen with these and the quality drop is useless) and was thinking that perhaps I should think about going to widescreen and HD.
My question is, which cameras would give me the same low light quality I am used to. Preferably Sony and not full professional broadcast cameras? I can't seem to get low light comparison info on the Sony FX1 (for eg) or cameras similar. Any ideas? Cheers..
