best low light video camera

Not intersted in a DSLR type cameera to shoot video. But of the video cameras out there, which will produce the best quality picture in low light situations?

2/3 chip cameras can be included. Cost not a huge factor.

Thanks

Bob

The Sony PMW350 is the best I've seen, although I haven't directly tested it against others.

I did the test below which I thought was pretty amazing:

I'd guess the Epic would be close with a native ISO of 800 and a VERY clean push out to about 2500ISO.
