    Does anyone out there know what the Native ISO for the Sony Exmor sensor found in the Phantom 3 Proffesional happens to be? All the information I find is user opinion/experience as valid as that may be any official release by manufacturer?

    But where in that article does it tell what that camera's Native ISO is and how is that arrived at -- or am I missing it.

    Cool thanks for the link Oso. To bobmyers: it's implying in Photograph 1, where the color and light seems the most balanced without changing the ISO. Many videographers start with the Native ISO of the camera which is mainly determined by the make/model. By starting with Native ISO your not adding or taking away light from the "neutral" design of the sensor. So if a scene is too dark, u have the option of adding more light instead of raising the ISO..or lowering ISO when it's too bright. In order to avoid corrected video in post, you always want to work close to the native ISO.

    That makes sense to this old mind:)

    So the Phantom camera- relates to the IMX117CQT sensor referred to in the article? and the Native ISO setting is 100?-- or is it 200 ?

    Thanks for sharing:):)
