Finally someone agrees with me the the in-camera noise reduction (in my case xti) is better than DPP! Common Canon, make this a top notch program!!

I've just now started trying Noise Ninja which works very well. Very impressed - just have to shell out the bucks for it. I may start shooting RAW now.

DPP just makes me mad cause its so close to being really good and I really want a good free tool (cause I'm cheap) that comes with my camera. Just needs better noise reduction, highlight recovery, and lens correction for my 17-85.

Oh and rotate!

No RAW converter's NR is as good as Noise Ninja y a large margin,.

But I suppose there is room for improvement with DPP.
But even with good NR in a RAW converter (I use Bibble which has Noise Ninja built in! ) I tend to do it in the PSCS phase after conversion.

Yeah, i'll be buying noise ninja for sure then. I guess what I'm really complaining about is the DPP should at least have as good noise reduction as the one in the camera. Oh well, maybe next update.

"More" isn't the same as "better"... The jpgs with in camera NR are quite a mush.

Noise tends to be hugely overrated. IMO DPP's NR is adequate, and better then that provided by either camera or LR for instance.

If you want better NR, try NoiseWare (external link)

I disagree. The camera NR is better than DPP - not just more. I don't have time to post example, but the article above does a good job, but its not with an xti.

Noise =good or bad, less is better or worse, detail is preferable to smoothness or not - these are all matters of subjective taste and artistic judgement. Absolutistic pontifications, "DPP is inadequate. Canon has to improve it !", send me running the other way.

I'm obviously on the wrong board. Forgive me for caring. Take care.
