Is it almost impossible to know a camcorder’s low light capability by spec?

Hi.

In camcorders world, they use gain instead of ISO, which is almost useless to compare across different devices, and spec like “min illumination” makes even less sense because it’s either 0, or 0.1 or 1, which are clearly marketing bullshits.

So is it impossible to evaluate a camcorder’s sensitivity unless one can test it in person?

Thanks.
