FS300 in low light

Anyone know the best settings to use in low light.  Last year, I tried filming inside Pirates of the Caribbean and the Haunted Mansion and the end result was garbage.  I'm going back this year and would like to try again, any suggestions?

The best mode to use when shooting at night or in low light where you are shooting is the Night Mode. However, there are some drawbacks noted in the manual.

 

  • Moving subjects may leave a trailing afterimage.
  • Picture quality may not be as good as in other modes.
  • White points may appear on the screen.
  • Autofocus may not work as well as in other modes.

Low light shooting has certainly improved over the years since the FS300 was released.  Have you considered one of our newer VIXIA models?

Just bought a new Vixia HF 400.   We'll see what the verdict is.
