I need some serious advice as I'm kind of beside myself on this issue. My D7000 seems to generate an excessive amount of noise when filming in low light... at least it seems like it is excessive compared to other test clips I've seen. It only affects video and not still photography.
I'm shooting with the following gear/settings:
White Balance: Auto
Here's a sample of the issue. Though, what appears on Vimeo does not seem as bad so I've provided a download link to the video as well.
or you can download the clip via Dropbox (67mb): http://dl.dropbox.com/u/5431419/DSC_9353.MOV
Thanks so much for any advice and suggestions!
