Hi, I noticed you say the FDR-AX53 will blow away any preceeding Sony camcorder under $1000, but I seem to remember some of the older models had Super Nightshot & Super Nightshop Plus, but may I ask if you think the sensor technology has come along enough these days for regular the FDR-AX53 's regular Nightshot to equal, or surpass these old models? I thought if anyone should know, it would be you guys & girls! I do genuinely appreciate any response & information you may be able to provide me.. Cheers, Jon (England, UK)
Hello Jon - the latest Sony cameras contain 1'' size sensors. The larger the sensor, the better it can resolve in low light. This would be the first thing to look for in these cameras. I beleive all preceeding NightShot cameras contain sensors some fraction of 1''. The difference is obvious when doing comparisions.
