dvx200 low light
 
I was looking into this camera or the ux90 for second wide shot for stage performance. I saw this video of rock band in low light but I see a strange flickering of the lights behind the performers like you would see if you filmed a computer screen. Is this a function of large single sensor?

I read contradictory options whether dvx200 is good in low light. I understand it wouldn't be as good as a full frame such as an A7S but I'm more interested how it compares to 3 chip 1/3" camcorder?

A DVX200 has a m4/3 sensor.

Isn't the larger sensor going to do better in low light?

Be well.

Yeah I would think but I read mixed opinions was low light performance.

Pete,
this is definitely not an issue with a large sensor. It looks like a stroboscopic effect due to small differences in camera frequency and mains powering the lights, which are probably LED's or fluorescent/mercury lamps. To avoid it, you may need to run in variable frame rate and adjust the camera to have the same frequency as the mains.
