Looking at camcorderinfo is a good suggestion. The Canon HV20 does good in low light, but that’s only when you;re in 24p mode from what I read. Consumer grade Canon’s have typically done worse in low light than Sony and Panasonic from what I read. I really don’t know if the HV20 is different. As you may know, the larger the CCD Chip, the better the low light performance (typically). Try to find one that uses a 1/3″ or 1/2″ chip. I have an older Sony DCR-HC96, which I have been happy with regarding low light. There was a Consumer Electronics show in Las Vegas this month, so you should start seeing to camcorders from the major players in Feb & Mar.
