I'm no camera guru, but from what I've seen I don't think any HDV camera will do what you are asking of it in dim natural light. At least, not without adding a lot of digital gain noise to the image. It really sounds like you need someone who knows how to light a scene so it appears to be naturally lit, although it isn't. That's part of why it takes years to learn these skills.

Best wishes,

Everyone,

You have all been great help. I now have a better idea of what I am going to need to pull this off.


Andy - Good luck with filming the reconstruction project. I hope to see the final product.

Cheers,
Terry.
