    Are there any good options for video settings? I have been getting rather grainy poor video.

    I am sure I could be doing something better...

    Some of the videos online look better then others. I am sure it has to be camera settings.

    Thanks. I was really frustrated.... As soon as I posted it I went outside and did a little bit of a controlled test and shot almost every option of video settings on the same bit of shrubs. It's a little dull, but I did come to the same findings on Sharpness.

    (its a little large, but you can see the difference in a video still)

    I am going to try some 1080 / 24fps / soft / narrow tomorrow when there is more light. I think this could be a good option.

    Narrow also looks to give better quality. I wanted to make sure the camera was not just cropping video on narrow, and from my test below it's not.
