This is the raw MOV output of a Z1012 IS at very low light conditions. Note the candles on the table, and the light they are throwing.
There is a lot of video noise, but VirtualDub's "Dynamic Noise Reduction" plugin will get rid of much of it. All things considered, I will take the noise from an HD camera, as long as I can get the images...
The audio is not overloading, although the bass drum is causing the level to "pump" as it was pretty loud in this corner of the room. Sound quality of the Z1012 is excellent, for a cheap camera.
Camera settings: Full wide, Auto, Single Focus, continuous stabilization.
