Re: issues with low light?
Yes, HV20 camera appear to demand bright sunlight to produce
good quality video.
I have not tried using it in artifitical light but probably electrical light must be
I suspect all "consumer" HDV cameras probably do since they
utilize HD CMOS image sensors not CCD.
This camera has optical image stabilization.
But the camera is so small and light it is hard to keep it very steady in hands.
For best stable results I use tripod.
