I was wondering which handycam camcorder is the best at low light shooting?
My understanding of the term “handycam” is that it means any camcorder built by Sony. It is such a general term that nobody can respond to it. If you are willing to have it mean D8 camcorder and if you are willing to look for old used camcorders then some of the best low-light camcorders were the D8’s made in 1999 and 2000. They are the DCR-TRVx1x and x2x model series where the middle digit = 1 or 2. My favorites are the DCR-TRV720, 320 and 310 which I own.
You really should specify a format like Video8, Hi8, Digital8, MiniDV or MiniDVD so people could understand what you are asking about.
