this is greek to me lol... what would that translate into for LR? I just move than noise reduction bar until the noise looks to be gone however you are right, it looses detail for sure..

You can also use the LR adjustment brush to apply noise reduction locally. For instance, I use it on wall mats. Sometimes if you do the NR globally too far, it removes details on the faces, etc. Brushing it in selectively can sometimes help avoid that problem.

Here is what I do in Lightroom. It is not as good as what TeamSpeed does in PS but works well enough for me.

I usually shoot in manual. I try to use a shutter speed 1/1000 or greater. My lens either wide open or closed down very slightly. I have my 7D2 set on auto-ISO and apply some eposure compensation if needed (you can do that with the 7D2).

For noise reduction, I filter the photos by ISO using an ISO filter in the metadata tab in the library. I then select the photos by similar groups of ISO (like 4000 & 5000). I process one photo in the group using the luminance slider (I usually leave the color slider set on the default 25) until I get the noise reduced where I want it Then I synch the other files in that group to the same amout.

Once I have appllied noise reduction to the all the groups of ISO's, I then sharpen. I usually sharpen to about 75-80. But more importantly, I hold the alt key (option key on a Mac) and move the mask slider until I can see mostly outlines in the photo. This will sharpen just the outlines or whatever of the players and not sharpen the backgrounds bringing back noise. I synch all the photos to these setting. A lot of the times, if I am in a hurry, I will just go with 75 on the sharpen slider and 75 on the mask slider.

Like I said, it is not as good as Teamspeed's method but works for my purposes.

Here's something completely different. A couple of months ago I bought an old Fuji G690 6x9 rangefinder for under $100 on eBay just to play around with film. I have been trying out different films and took a few shots at a game using some Ilford Delta 3200. Max shutter speed is 1/500 and since there's no easy way to focus, it's really not for action, but I was able to get a couple of shots.

You bring up a very good point actually with that post. Personally I keep overlooking the fact that if a color image looks very bad, as in noisy, contrasty, etc. often I can turn that into a black and white that just has a different effect to it, and can actually look really cool noisy. It looks retro or something like an old photo. It is a way to salvage a bad shot.

Tonight, I had the opportunity to shoot my first college game. Things definitely move quicker. :-)
I haven't been through all of my shots, but here are a few samples.

Hi Tim, just getting around to playing with the files you provided. Again, you want to try to get the best shot you can out of camera. For this last pic, you shot at ISO 3200 and 1/640th. This left you with a very underexposed shot, also catching what I believe to be the cycling of the lights thus providing a very tough scene to set a WB on.

I tried my best, your fix above is pretty good actually, but I would think that going to ISO 6400 and 1/800th might have improved the overall shot up front, making it easier to post process later.

At least at ISO 3200, there is virtually no noise, the 5D3 does well there!

Here is my edit on the pic, with a little bit of fiction to allow better composition.

Tim, here is another I worked on. I used DPP and brought the exposure up almost 2 stops, used the landscape picture style (one of my favs), pushed the shadow slider up a bit, strengthened the sharpening and set the WB as best I could.

I then edited in Photoshop for composition, noise reduction, and more USM. Here is your before and my after.

I think I would give the same advice. I would go to ISO 6400 and maybe 1/800th. The image wouldn't be quite as underexposed, and the motion will stop a bit better. I would also shoot a custom WB there at the game (unless you don't use DPP at all).
