    enjoy the noise on this 2 minute 40 second footage we shot using:
    HPX170
    Letus Extreme
    C/Y Zeiss

    Regular Cine-D settings w/ "-8 Master Ped".

    i got confused looking @ this footage on Final Cut,
    seriously... my hvx200 didn't even produce this much noise.

    we used 2k tungsten + 4ft4bank KinoFlo
    &
    no gain

    try boosting the gain up to 9db next time and see what happens.

    this actually reduces noise for me in low light situations believe it or not.

    I actually tried +12db filming a wedding recently and the noise is there but ... not as bad as it should be. But know if I should stay on Cine V or it's ok to stay on Cine D?

    Tose lenses are sharp. did see the noise but your art direction made is less of a distraction.

    You guys are beginning to freak me out, I have had my 170 for three weeks and haven't had any time to shoot anything except some tests for my article. I did not see excessive noise and shooting against the HVX200, I saw much greater picture detail.

    My 170 generates much less noise than my HVX ever did. Why are you getting such a different result?

    I think people are comparing it to the 200a which has a reportedly cleaner image than the 170.

    Jan made it seem like a camera to camera issue. They just need to put the two side-by-side... they being those who've noticed this issue... and do a comparison shoot. Oh wait they are doing that!

    just got my camera back from panasonic today... had to go pick it up from UPS center @ 9:45pm because they typed in my address wrong, had me waiting the whole day for it, and finally i tracked it and it shows address not available.

    i don't want to say "wth is panasonic doing" because they corrected the issue of the lens wobble, but we discovered the noise issue and they are not recognizing it, & now shipping my camera to wrong address. wth is panasonic doing?

    geeze, I don't mind a bit of noise, actually a prefer a little bit, BUT

    that is really excessive and distracting.

    I'm not understanding that the noise levels differ from camera to camera???

    Cine D is much more noiser than Cine V, from what I've read and seen.
