Does someone know what option works better: in camera noise reduction for long exposure (1 second ore more) or post exposure software enhancement?
Thanks an happy holydays.

I believe that incamera noise reduction can work well. I don't know if it works better that post production with software, and its also implementation dependent. Just because it can work well doesn't mean the camera manufacturer did it well.

I can say that using software like neatimage does work well if you can train it on some area of the picture.

The in-camera noise reduction works better for long exposure noise and the software for regular noise. They are really two different things. Steve had a good example of the long exposure in-camera variety a few years ago – Neat Image wouldn't handle this too well: http://www.steves-digicams.com/2001_...tml#conclusion
