Canon 7D dSLR Video Noise at Higher ISO Levels

Here's a very interesting video taken with a Canon 7D dSLR with the goal of demonstrating the noise levels at different ISO levels. Watch the lower right hand corner where the ISO levels are displayed and notice how the noise levels increase in direct proportion to the increase in ISO except when the ISO level is at a multiple of 160.

Reader Comments (2) why is there such a drastic difference with multiples of 160?

That's a great question. I've read on another blog that Canon makes it's own sensors and that the native ISO of a Canon sensor is 160. I don't know how to confirm that but I'm definitely going to use ISO differently now as a result.
