I brought the Tokina 10-17mm lens and didn't waste time on it and took out to South Coast Plaza to test it and create some cool effects please let me know. Edited on imovie.

Pretty cool effects and the quality looks so much better than what I have been able to get out of my T2i. I mentioned to another T2i user in this forum that I can not get any video in lighting like you had that was not filled with grain or noise. I am thinking there is something wrong with the sensor in my camera. I shoot in manual mode with ISO at 100 and the apature at 30 even with the 50mm at 1.8 I can not get any usable video at night with lights like you had around you. I have been to SCP and those lights are not really bright. IS there something special you are doing like using magic latern to get better quality in low light?

okay I see where you coming from, try ISO auto, aperture 1/30 f3.5 or 4.0 WB white fluorescent light. that should do the trick

YA I tried that using magic lantern and I still get grainy video with moderate lighting and shooting at night outside my place with the porch lights on my place and the neighbors along with the path lamps I get really noisy video. I dont know what do other than find someone near me that has a T2i to compare it to. You are about an hour away or I would I ask to come meet up with you next time you plan on going some place to shoot. I am out in the San Fernando valley. I know it is not impossible to get a bad body camera with issues.

@ hdr fan: your sensor is probably fine... if your ISO is set at 100 then your definitely going to have problems shooting in any sort of diminished light scenario..
ISO 100 is what i shoot when i'm in broad daylight.

the last shoot that i did where i had plenty of light i still shot at 1600 ISO since the lights that were in the room still were not giving me enough light.

Just so you know the ISO is the sensitivity of your sensor (more traditionally Film) so if you are in a lower light situation you want your sensor to be "faster" or higher ISO number.

Shoot in ISO increments of 160

160 -> 320 -> 640-> 1250-> 2500

You'll get less noise at those levels. Try to keep your shutter at 2X your frame rate. i.e. 24p you should be using 1/50th of a second.

Noise is always more noticeable in shadows when you under-expose. So if you choice is a low iso and under-exposure, always boost your ISO or open your aperture to get a correct exposure.

Manual white balance will also yield better results. My personal advice is always shoot 1-200 degrees cooler than whatever you think is right =)

YA that would be great to meet up sometime and compare what I get with your camera. Just PM me with the next time you are going to go out and where and I will try to meet you.

Thanks to everyone for the advice. I did mess around with WB and ISO tonight to see what happens but I never found any result I was happy with. I guess I was expecting HD res like you see in movies for 700 bucks.lol
