DSLR Tips Shoot Video in Low Light (Night)

Using a lens with a wide aperture (shallow depth of field) is necessary for filming in low light or dark surroundings. The Nikon or Canon 50mm F/1.8 lens is a great way to start into that whole new world. Although the build quality isn’t high, it is hard to focus properly because the focus ring is really small, and the sharpness is not the best either but I don’t expect too much from a 100 Dollar lens. I am using the Canon 50mm F/1.8 on a lot of our shoots because it is small and light. It can be used on crop as well as on full-frame cameras which makes it even a better choice if you are shooting with two different DSLRs. Another cheap and really small lens is the Pancake 40mm F/2.8 STM. There are tons of other lenses out there but most of the price is quite expensive. I also recommend looking for cheaper alternatives from other companies like Sigma, Tokina, Samyang or Tamron. Always make use of Google, Youtube, Vimeo, etc. to find out about this. There are so many people who take the time to create article or video about DSLR lenses, either individually lens or by comparing one lens with another lens.

In the video I recommended not to shoot above ISO 1600 which applies for cameras like the Canon 60D, 7D, 700D (T5i), Nikon D7000, D600, D5200, etc. Newer full-frame cameras like the Canon 1DX, 5D Mark III (and of course the newest technology in the future) can shoot up to ISO 6400 with acceptable noise. Of course those numbers and the resulting noise are subjective and you might think different about it, that’s okay. An ISO of 3200 can look good under certain circumstances and an ISO of 800 can look noisy under other circumstances.

Using a flat picture style helps to get more dynamic range. Why? The standard picture profile makes dark areas appear as black and brighter parts as white. It color corrects the video in the camera which is only useful if you don’t want or can correct anything in your editing software. When we do news shoots and are in a hurry I don’t desaturate the image in the picture style menu as much as when I have the time to color correct the clips. Keeping the contrast down is on the other hand very important because the in-camera contrast can destroy a lot of important image details.

Conclusion :
- Use a lens with wide aperture (shallow depth of field).
- Not to shoot above 1600 ISO.
- Using flat picture style.
