    I am a face-and-body-painter, and I do a lot of work in UV aka "black light". I want to get a semi-professional light-weight camera under 800$ to take pictures of glowing bodies, and I wonder - which one shall I get? It should be really good with low light, and hi contrast and have high color sensitivity. I would also appriciate any tips and tricks on taking good pictures in UV envioronments (clubs, festivals etc) Thanks!

    Are you actually looking to photograph UV light fairly exclusively? Or are you looking for a regular camera that works well in low-light situations that may have a UV leak? I ask because the former are specialized and you likely cannot find in a regular camera. UV detectors are difficult to make, and most optical CCDs have a marked fall-off in sensitivity towards the blue end of the spectrum, continuing the fall-off through the UV.
