Here's a raw DNG shot in very low light from Frank, to try grading.

Here is Frank's graded version - http://frankglencairn.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/frame000060.jpg

Yes if you push this shot you are going to see a LOT of noise.

But with F4 in the dark, it is hardly surprising. This is the exposure we're really trying to rescue here:

You'd need to boost the curves to the equivilent of something like ISO 6400 or even 12,800 to compensate for the under exposure. So when you see noise, you are really seeing what ISO 6400 looks like on the Blackmagic camera!

And on a DSLR you would not be able to pull that up. You need faster glass.

Look at how much detail is in here. Kind of looks like HDR video.

Before and after video.

Holy Somalians!! I messed around with the image for a while but I never got it looking that nice. Huge props to you! You got some Grading skills.
