    low light digital camera recommendations?

    Hi folks,

    I'm in the market for a digital camera with good low light capability. I'd really like to be able to use it without a flash for indoor and nighttime shots and was hoping I could get some input on a camera brand and lens recommendation. I'm looking in the $1000 and under range and so far I'm leaning towards Fuji's S-series Pro line, probably used. If I go with that, I'm wondering what would be a good F-mount lens too. My priority is not on megapixel or resolution, but good color reproduction. If any of you knowledgeable peeps could help me out, I'd appreciate it.

    i would look into the recent dslr's like the canon digital rebel or nikon d70 (which is a bet more expensive)

    if you can live with prime lenses you could get a rebel (body only 899) and the 50mm 1.8 (80 bux) and push the iso for some workable low light photography. i've routinely used iso1600 pics... they look crappy at first but a little photoshop and noise reduction (neatimage) and u'd be surprised w/ the results.

    cheers.

    Canon's digital rebel has great color reproduction. You can also just set it to a low shutter speed (4 sec or more) if you need to do nighttime shots. It also does very well in terms of noise even up to 1600 ISO.
