Have you checked to ensure you have the latest firmware updates etc? This past Friday we shot a diner scene at night, rather low light, with a Canon 7D – little brother to 5D, and the video was great, low noise and we couldn’t ask any more from the camera. I think we were at iso 800 and not sure of the f/stop. Regardless, the video was low noise and looked great. You might want to run some test using different ISO in the same setting to see if there is a difference in the amount of noise – there should be.
I can tell you this – these cameras are hybrids and you have to put the time in to set them up which means doing test shots to see what works best otherwise you don’t always get what you are expecting. We learned that the hardway.
