UPDATE- 2/12/12 *Before you make any final decisions, check this out.
The anomaly in the 320 is probably due to coming down from 640, which I did.
Mega ISO NOISE Test
Tested with Driftwood Quantum V9b patch.
Picture profile: Smooth -2,-2, 0(sat), -2
24H mode, Shutter 1/50, Using 'dumb' nikon lens
WB set to auto for lows and Mids, 5400k for Highs
IR and I contrast off.
First test done with the lens cap on. All ISO's selected from a higher value to avoid the bug when approaching from below.
Converted to ProRes HQ using 5DtoRGB Batch-
Settings 709, Full luma range.
Imported to FCP and cropped in-place to show all on one screen. Everything is 100% size, just cropped. Then applied the same 3-way color corrector to every clip to enhance contrast.
Individual fullscreen shots coming in Pt 2
Exported using compressor to h264 on HIGH Q.
Not a perfectly scientific test, but told me what I needed to know.
You can see that my camera suffers from the weird lighter band across the lower 3rd of the image that becomes visible.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
