I would say it has one of the best low-light capabilities I have seen in a camcorder. But be cautious, if the scene is too dark, it becomes grainy.
I use Sony MiniDV tapes for the camcorder. I use them because Sony made them, the same company that makes the camcorder.
I would not use the camcorder for photography though. The pictures are "okay", but not great, far from.
Overall the camcorder is great. Lots of manual controls and it produces very good quality video. The on-board mic is not bad either, but I use an external mic.
