Technicolor just released a new Picture Profile for Canon DSLRs, and recommended that ISO be used in multiples of 160. Andrew Schär decided to test this using his Canon 60D, and found that in terms of the amount of noise present in the footage, ISO numbers that are multiples of 160 are best (i.e. least noise), followed by multiples of 100, and finally multiples of 125 being worst.
NEC announced today that they’ve developed “noise suppression technologies” for compact cameras that will clean up the audio in video recordings by canceling out the noise created by the lens zooming in and out. It works by storing a recording of what the zoom noise sounds like to the camera, and subtracting that noise from recorded video. Casio’s new EX-ZR10 will be the first compact to feature this new tech, but NEC promises that it’ll be found throughout the digicam market soon. Enjoy the “ZZZZ! ZZZZ!” sound while it’s still around!
