What's a good camera for low light video recording?

Episode 1287 (17:18)

John from Tustin, CA
Sony RX100

John needs a camera that will take better video in low light. Leo says that smartphones aren't really known for having good low light performance, but they are getting better. A camera will perform a lot better, especially if it has a larger chip. Full frame 35mm are the best in low light, but it's also a lens speed issue. The lower the f-stop rating, the faster the lens.

The Sony RX100/B is $498 on Amazon. The Sony A7S is also a good mirrorless DSLR that can take a picture with one candle and get a great image.
