I’m just getting into video recording and video editing and I’m looking for a recommendation on a camera for filming in low light. I’d rather spend <$500 usd to start out. Basically I’m going for a similar effect found in this video. I don’t plan on taking videography too far, just mostly for clips/playthroughs of things I write. The guy in the video told me he uses a canon rebel t5i and 1 softbox light. With all the cameras on the market and my lack of knowledge just thought I’d see what you guys’ thoughts are. Thanks! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGYTYCkWKng

Sony cameras having an Exmor or newer sensor are the kings of the low light world. I have both a Canon T3i and a Sony RX-100, and the low light images produced by the RX-100 are quite nice, where the T3i at higher ISO settings are full of chroma noise.
