Yes. You can see this also, at:


comparing the TRV11 with the TRV30 (and others) in three

light levels. I can recover a useable image with acceptable

color from the TRV11 shot in too-low light, but not from

the TRV30, which goes too far "off-color" to correct well.

BTW, it appears the current crop of Sony camcorders with

the 1/4.7" megapixel CCD do have nice image quality at their

low-light limit, an improvement over both the TRV11 and

TRV30 images in low light...
