Hey guys, how about some low-light comparisons? Sounds like the Z7 is pretty good in this regard, but how does it stack up vs the PD170 at dark wedding receptions?

This is a smaller chip problem, rather than a manufacturer issue.

A larger imaging chip can handle more light which gives the final image more lattitude to expose the highlights & shadows.

One of the tradeoffs of using smaller cameras.
