I just started doing some research camcorders and was wondering if anyone can suggest the latest pocketsize camcorder (as in fits in your pant pocket) which records well in low light. Low light as in useful at night to make out faces in dark indoor rooms with candles or outdoor camping campfires. I am open to different mediums, hard drives, sdcards, and even mini-dv cams (i'm told the transfer rates are still some of the best using this old technology).
I realize i can do the same thing using a point and shoot camera such as a canon s95/s100 or nikon p300 with the f2.0 or less f-stops but i figure the camcorder records smoother and hopefully has a longer battery life and longer filming periods.
thanks in advance
