    Default what to do with noise when shooting raw?

    hi,

    dun know if it is true or not, but i feel that when i shoot in raw, the noise level is so much higher than in jpeg...

    like to ask:

    what is your best method to deal with the noise when shooting raw?
    (i mean what is your digital workflow?)

    thanks in advance for sharing...

    Mmm did you use the noise reduction tools in the software? For me i do noise reduction after changing the exposure settings. Find that that works fine with me.

    jpgs have gone through in-camera noise reduction... for RAW, you have the option to control the strength applied by your RAW conversion program's noise reduction system...

    Also consider using a 3rd parrt noise removal program at the end of the workflow.

    when do you all normally remove noise? before or after sharpening?

    i think noise removal does make the image a little less sharp right? or are my eyes not working liao...

    Yes the more noise you remove the less sharp the pic is
    i usually view at 100% and remove noise before sharpening

    Well, it's a balance... some sharpening may induce noise as well... so watch out carefully.

    Yeah, software NR. It's not as convenient as in-camera since you have to manually do it, but software NR tends to do a much better job than in-camera NR. Noise Ninja is a good example.
