Best cameras for low light photography

Low light shooting is notoriously difficult. After all, cameras are designed to capture light and record it, so if there’s less light, it’s harder for the camera to do its job. There are a few things you should look for when considering whether or not to purchase one of the best cameras for low light shooting. 

The first is its ability to ramp up light sensitivity, outlined in its ISO range. The higher the ISO sensitivity can go, the better the camera will be at capturing well exposed images in dark scenes. However, higher ISOs also bring more image noise which distorts the photograph or video. Therefore, a larger image sensor (preferably with slightly fewer megapixels) is preferred as it physically takes up more space and can capture more light.
