D60 VIDEO NOISE

Hi,

I have been filming a documentary with D60 (can't afford 5D etc). With this camera,I am getting images with high noise even with low ISO.I get the worst video in a high contrast situation when there is sunlight and people in shadows. Most of my filming situations are like that. Generally walls or people are grainy.

Is there any way around this? From internet the only advise I get is to use ISOs in increments of 160.

I am filming on HD at 25 fps

Thanks

I sold my Canon 60D four years ago ( after I bought a GH2 camera ), but you might want to add fill-light to lower the contrast of your shots ( either a large LED light or a bounce reflector ) and then use NeatVideo to clean-up some of the video noise. NeatVideo can do amazing things when properly used.

I'm not a Nikon shooter, but I know Canon has the option to turn on Auto ISO, so I'd definitely check to make sure that's *not* on. If the camera ups the ISO to compensate for a dark part of the framing, you'll end up with noise you don't want. Just a thought
