Nikon D7000 High ISO Movie Tests at ISO 1600, 3200, 6400, 12,800, 25,600

Nikon D7000 Movie Clips at ISO 1600, 3200, 6400, 12,800, and 25,600

Lilly was watching the Wiggles last night, so I grabbed the D7000 and shot some movie clips of her at the higher ISO settings.

I put them together in Sony Vegas so you can see how they compare for noise.

Similar to my findings for using the Nikon D7000 for photos, even ISO 6400 is quite usable.

For best quality, I would stay at ISO 1600 or lower, with ISO 3200 being ok depending on what you're using the footage for. ISO 6400 is usable, but the noise is getting more visible, so again, it depends on what you're shooting and what your end use is.

For personal stuff such as family and kids, I wouldn't hesitate to use ISO 6400.

For professional use, I would stay at ISO 1600 or lower.

The Nikon D7000 continues to impress me, and it's video capabilities are no exception. I'm really liking the D7000 movie controls much better than my Canon T2i.

The D7000's new movie switch / button is excellent.
