yes, noise is the the "grainy" speckles you see in some low-light photos at high-isos.

Yes, it is digital noise, it is bad/inaccurate information that is caused by trying to make a sensor read the scene more quickly.

Sorry to keep asking but... The taking care of "noise", is this done after the pictures are taken? I have yet to get any software to modify/fix my shots. I am wanting to take some pics of my son playing basketball and haven't really messed with the ISO. I noticed the shots I took were at ISO 1600 and were blurry and not what I wanted at all. Will increasing the ISO and my shutter speed help to get some better pics? Sorry to add this much to this thread and take away from his great photos. I am using my Nikor 55-200mm lens f4-5.6 (which I know isn't the best lens) but it didn't too bad. I just need to tighten/sharpen up my pics.

Thanks,

BP

You can do noise reduction in camera but it doesn't perform as well as using software afterwards.

Increasing the ISO will allow for a faster shutter speed but also noise will be worse so it is a trade off.
