Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I have a sony HVR-Z5U and shoot mostly in HDV. I shoot mostly wedding and events ect. and have a technical question on some settings for low light situations. My cam shoots crystal clear HDV in daylight, but indoors with low light the video when viewed on a HD tv is a bit grainy and cannot figure out if this is a simple setting or if it is even correctable. My general settings are 1.Manual mode 2.Gain set to 3db-12db. 3.My shutter is at 60. I adjust my iris to correct for low light but wonder if this issue is correctable with the Picture Profile settings. The grain seems to stand out the most on dark colors. Please help as I edit in HDV but when video is produced to BluRay, the grain really stands out and is unacceptable. Is there any way to fix this?

This is not grain as such, it is electronic 'noise', generated when taking photos in low-light situations. Unavoidable, I'm afraid.

SOURCE: color/hue

I see this everyday. The problem is faulty CCD sensor ( see enclosed pic ). You are lucky because Canon will replace the sensor free of charge so contact your agent.79c5c87.jpg

Gigi215, Change your ISO up until the speed is at least 1/60th, then see if that helps. randy320sgi

SOURCE: Not good photos indoors very grainy and bad light looking photos

Auto mode in poor lighting (generally always indoors without flash) sets high ISO, which produces ugly amount of noise (graininess). What you need is to keep the ISO under 200 by either:
Shooting well lit scenes, using flash etc.
or
Uusing one of the manual programs (M, S, A, P) and setting the sensitivity via the F-menu.
