The best camcorders for low light recording have atleast one CCD sensor, the 3 CCD ones being the best.
A few factors that affect low light performance are aperture, (lower is better), lens diameter (bigger is better), sensor size (larger is better), and sensitivity (lower lux is better). When you are scouting the horizon for the best camcorder for low-light, remember that more number of sensor chips (3 CCD) does not mean more light intake, but a smaller number of sensor pixels that are much larger than usual in size, does. A back-illuminated sensor also means higher sensitivity and better low-light performance. Camcorders for low light are good indoor outdoor camcorders suitable for use in the evenings and at night.
