I'm using the new X7 camera on an I2 and want to capture twilight footage of the city. It seems I need to get to at least ISO 800 to do this but it seems noisy.
Anyone have great solutions to get clean high ISO footage?

Shoot raw or Prores 4444 and use Neat Video plugin. It works beautifully. See last two shot shots on this clip -

Thanks for the info. I see they have a plugin for AfterEffects or Premiere. When do you apply the plugin with Raw footage?

Depends on your workflow for raw and what the particular shot (noise) is like.
Assuming you don't edit in raw, you might convert to an editable codec, do assemble edit then apply, or do it before final grade. Try it a few ways on a single frame to find your best solution for the shot.

Not sure you can edit in raw - I believe you need to bring the raw footage into an editing system first

I just tried the demo plugin and it looks good.
Also went to a friend's studio and tried it with the tools inside DaVinci Resolve which looks great too.
I may go the DaVinci route and get some extra tools for another $150.
