Best ISO values on the FS100?
 
Hi everyone,
peraphs you all know about the fact that on a Canon 5D there are some "champion" ISO values. For example ISO 160 generates less noise than ISO 100 and ISO 1250 generates less noise than ISO 800.
You can find this scheme here: Canon 5d Native ISO Test - Empty Bucket Studios
Arte there similiar "BEST ISO VALUES" on the FS100?

Not surprised that this thread has no replies.

The FS100 hardly shows any grain at all ... and what ever grain it does show, is rather appealing and film like.

I hope I did not ask a stupid question....
I thought that every camera worked with something like this...

No stupid question.

But the FS100 is more or less noisefree up too 800 ISO. I can see first noise appearance from 1600 ISO on but use ISO on a daily basis up to 3200 if I need it. There is noise, but it's more a filmic gain, that doesn't look that awfull!

Interestingly enough, Sony implemented it's noise reduction into the FS100's codec. So, when you compare it's AVCHD to what you capture from it's HDMI (with a Ninja, Samurai or other recorder) you will start to see a slight difference around 12db. From 12db and up you will see more and more noise coming off the HDMI port.

Mind you, this is nothing "bad" by any means. The FS100 is quite amazing in it's low light performance. It's actually nice that they put noise reduction on the codec side only. This way, YOU control how much NR you want in post and the details are preserved on the HDMI side.

Last i saw some comparisons between the FS100 and the C300, the FS was fairly comparable, I think most would agree that the C300 edged it out, but if you were to pick the close second on the market, the FS100 is a clear contender, hence a great low light performer

Useful info!

I just wish that, instead of starting at an already high ISO of 500, the FS100 would have lower values such as 100 and 200 ISO, as on most stills cameras. Would save some money on ND-filters...
