Have you ever taken a blurry picture at a wedding or event? Chances are that you have. I know I’ve had my share of bad pictures taken in dark rooms.┬áMost weddings are in the evening and the lighting is usually dim. Sometimes the only illumination comes from candle light. While the low light at these events create a fantastic mood, it is not an environment for taking good photos.

Today, I’ve compiled a short list of digital cameras that are excellent in low light situations.┬áThe cameras on this list improve the ability to capture great shots in dim lighting but will not necessarily guarantee that every picture will expose correctly. But by using one of these cameras, you’ll greatly improve the number of good photos that you can later use in your wedding slideshow or photo sharing site.

All these cameras are compact point-and-shoot cameras and they are listed in price from lowest to highest. Amazon seems to have some good prices for these low-light cameras.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 $399 with free shipping from Amazon

If you’re in the market for a good low light camera for an upcoming event, any of those listed above should do an adequate job.
