Will a good camera be able to capture images in dim light? Print
November 2008
You have to read the camera specification carefully.  Look for the minimum illumination level for the camera to capture images in colour and Black/White respectively.  For example, some good cameras are capable of capturing images in colour when the light intensity is as low as 7Lux and in Black/White down to 0.05Lux.  One Lux is equivalent to Full Moon overhead in a tropical area in a dark night.  An average hallway or toilet would have 80Lux.  Some good cameras have Infrared capability and can capture images in 0Lux.
