The best ISO settings for Canon Video DSLRs

My twitter buddy Andrew Schär made this informative test, which shows you the best ISO settings for your Canon DSLR in video mode. He used a Canon 60D with an APS-C sensor (the same sensor is in the Canon 550D (T2i), Canon 600D (T3i) and Canon 7D).

If you are shooting video with your DSLR you should use the following ISO settings:
160, 320, 640, 100, 200, 400, 800, 1250, 125, 250, 500, 1000, 1600, 2500, 2000, 3200, 4000, 5000, 6400

I’ve always used these settings. I start at 160 ISO, then 320, 640, 1250, 1600…
