Default Avoiding Dark Current Noise with CG10

Hi everyone--

I've noticed there is a lot of noise in low light settings while shooting video with the CG10. I understand this is the plight of most digicams, but I did notice that sometimes, a sensor could be fooled to make do with what it had and the darks were really dark, not noisey and speckley.

Does anyone have any best practices for tricking the sensor into not doing this? Do you manually control the shutter speed to do this? How about flashing a light onto the camera?

Your DIY tricks would be appreciated, thank you!

if there is a night preset you might try that. I'm not familiar with the cg10s manual settings but definitely try to adjust the exposure/aperture/iso. if there is a WD mode or HS mode check to see if those affect the noise. I believe the iso or gain is where the noise problem comes from. You need to get a shutter speed that doesn't cause jitter or lag..just play with the manual setting until you get the best you can and then share your settings. The worse thing that can happen is you'll know your cam better.
