I just picked up my first DSLR (5D Mark II) and was immediately curious to see how it would perform in low light.
I tried shooting out doors at night with just lighting from the street lights using 1080P at 1/50 shutter speeder with a 16-35mm f/2.8L II lens. Aperture was set to 2.8. White balance was auto. ISO was set to 3200.
I realize this probably isn't the best lens for low light, but my results were extremely noisy and disappointing. I'm a bit surprised and I'm hoping there are some settings that I still need to adjust. I feel like most of the low light examples I see online look a great deal better. Any advice for a noob?
