Great looking stuff. I'm really impressed with the low light performance for "film"-like work.

Is it just me, or does the noise look less like typical RGB video noise, and just a bit like film grain? Maybe I'm just kidding myself?

How does your 800 ASA square with the ASA 100 to 320 Berry found?

Looking at his results it's clear the lens T-stop does not match the F-stop markings as one goes below F4. Looks like by F2 the lens is really only passing a T-stop of about F2.8.

Damn straight

Hey you all, and really cheers for this good forum. As a newbie in this stuff good to got info from more experienced ppl. And thanks Tim, for the settings, have been going circles with my new love (hd100) about the "grainy" quality in low light, and with settings u provided really starts exeeding the expectations.

Would be nice to get also more settigns in different environments. I know you pros have more better stuff to do, but when we newbies are going to take ower the world we are going to give a big cheers for you guys.. and all these things are something that u have no idea if u have no idea.

Thanks to u all
