In this series of articles, I’ll be guiding you through the DAM system I was taught at university, using a back-to-basics approach. It’s a system that will grow with you, that’s easy to back up, and that allows you to locate a specific photograph within a few seconds to a few minutes at most. And it will make editing through your photos much faster. And your albums and portfolios will create themselves. And it will work just as well with 5,000 photos as it will with 500,000.

ISO settings for video on a Canon 7D

Further to yesterday’s behind the scenes post, I thought I’d share the above video, which shows the levels of noise at various ISO settings on the Canon 7D.

Note that the cleanest image is not at ISO 100, as you might expect, but at ISO 160, which is probably the 7D sensor’s native ISO.  The video gets progressively noisier for each third of a stop above a multiple of ISO 160.  This leaves your options at 160, 320, 640, and 1250.  I used ISO 320 for yesterday’s shoot.
