Default Pentax Kr Video issue

The video in my Pentax KR is really grainy compared to other videos I've seen online.

I am complete new to said camera.

The ISO is set to automatic

f stop is maxed out - 5.6

All of my HD settings are maxed as well. Could it just be I dont have enough light? I've seen some vide on youtube of some low light situations and the video is still more clear.

The still images I have taked in the same light are perfectly clear.

I've also heard that SD cards can affect it too....I only have 2 gig SD card, should I purchase a better card?

Thanks again for any help. Sorry for all of the questions.

I've only shot a couple of quick clips of video, so I'm no expert. Low light could definitely affect the noise - try changing your ISO to 100 and see if that makes a difference. Also, cards can have a big effect - how fast is your 2 GB card? If its that small, it could also be slower and upgrading to a faster and larger card could make a difference.

i dont believe you can set your ISO when taking videos with the Kr.
