Testing the Canon XF100 at very low light conditions.
I added 18 bd of Gain and used Neat Video Denoiser.
View video in full screen mode to see how bad the noise actually is.
What I find amazing about this camera is how much colour data it records, even in extremely low light conditions, and by using some gain and post-production techniques you can recover some usable footage.
Neat Video inserts a green line box because I am using the demo version.
YOUR COMMENTS ARE WELCOME.
NOTE from Dec 5, 2011:
My video above says that I used Auto Profile and 60% sharpening, but since first posting it I found that this produced far too much smoothing of the details. I found and used a much better technique. It is found in this youTube video at the 10 minute mark http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eldaHwu58rI. This video (Part 2) and Part 1 are tutorials made by the Neat Video people, and they are excellent. I could not have gotten the results I did without these 2 tutorials.
