Canon 80D footage looks terrible!

Hello, I have been shooting video on my canon 80d on A+ with a set with 5 lights and the image quality just looks terrible. It looks grey and dark as well as grainy. I can't figure out why it is like this. When it is seen small it looks great, but when put in full screen it looks bad... All help appreciated! If anyone wants to see the video just let me know and I can send it there way!

Greetings,

I don't shoot much video, but the type of lighting can have a big effect on the output video quality.  What lens are you using?

 

Some of the other guys can probably help better than I.  Might be useful for them if you can describe the shooting conditions, type of lighting, etc

What is your exposure?  I suspect using [A+] mode could be your problem.  You would get better results in [M ]mode.

Try outside on a sunny day.

Mixed lighting might be one of the problems. LED and light (tungsten) bulbs
