Can anyone recommended a very cheap camcorder, sub 100? I'm not asking for the world, but it would be nice if it performed decently in low light.

There are lots of different ideas of what constitutes good low light performance. Good low light performance usually means a big lens for gathering lots of light and a large image sensor to convert it to pixels without adding loads of noise. Those are generally features of far more expensive camcorders.

TechRadar did a summary of what it considered to be the best camcorders at the beginning of 2012. You might start with that as a tool for drawing up a short list. LINK

There's other info if you Google: LINK

This Samsung Q10 is good for low light and cheap but still 40 over budget: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-Q10-...rds=camcorders

maybe use a good quality smart phone - you may already have one, to do the job of a cheap camcorder.
