    I can do it up to 1/10 if i am carefull. I can surely do it without problem at 1/30.

    what about you? what is your experience with this?

    hi daniella.. great to see you here

    Looks like a nice forum, look much more friendly than the forum at dpreview.com

    I went shooting some snow in the montain near by. this only happens about every 10 years here. My photo did not have so much noise but i could get rid of what it has. Anyone know what software version need this patch for noise?

    Here is my gallery:

    www.pbase.com/zylen and
    www.pbase.com/c700

    should i get an upgrade too?

    Default ISO 800?

    How about you guys doing some tests at ISO 800 so we can see the level of noise now with this patch?

    will ISO 800 be more usable with this patch?

    Did a brief try last night. The ISO doesn't improve much. 800 is way too noisy to be used. The only improvement I noticed is that you can exposure the shutter speed longer without having as much moise as before.

    Hi daniella3d, I don't think there is a firmware patch to reduce such noise for the C700UZ, but I have been trying different softwares to tackle this noise problem in the post-processing stage. Please visit my website www.weekai.com and click on "information". I have a short article there.

    Can someone please confirm which is the later version of the two:

    v357p-73 or v357p-74?

    Mine was v357p-73 before the so-called "upgrade" to v357p-74. I haven't test for hotpixels yet.

    No? but i thought that patch was about reducing the noise no? or is it only remaping the hot pixels?

    The patch reduced the intensity of hotpixels, but it did nothing to ISO noise and shadow noise whatsoever....
