First off, check out SAR for actual ISO comparisons Jpeg and RAW from 800-6400+ at Photokina.

Second, how would you know the video is "probably" filmed HDMI out? Especially if the quality is so bad what are you basing that assumption on?

FYI, just because the camera's "feed" is uncompressed does not mean the external recorded is not encoding the video with an intermediate codec like prores.

End of the day what do you want me to say. It looks bad. Still polluted with chroma and luminescent noise and the video has lots of artifacting.

Here look:

Look past the god awful singing and realize that since they put the camera on video kit this was probably filmed with HDMI out. SO the best quality. Now some of the problems may be due to youtube compression but check out the areas that are out of focus, jagged chaotic artifacts all over. It looks awful to me. Looking at these photos I have my concerns even at the relatively low iso shot here.
