Default D100 Noise Reduction

Hi all,
Does the D100's noise reduction work for images that are shot at high speed, with a high ISO -- say 500 @ ISO 1600?

If not - what are my alternatives?

Trying to reduce the grainy images taken inside of a hockey rink with no flash.....

Thanks
Eric

www.neatimage.com

The best noise reduction package I've ever seen.

They offer a free download (only works in 8-bit, not PS plugin or batch mode) so give it a try.

The D100's Noise reduction only works on shots 1/2 sceond or longer.

To be getting noise in a hockey rink, you must have the ISO set fairly high (1600+). I have been shooting ISO 800 for indoor lacrosse with very little noise, but I also use a flash.

For noise reduction and sharpening I use nik! Multimedia. They have special noise reduction modules (about $35 extra) for specific cameras. I have a Minolta 7i and this package works GREAT! People love NeatImage and I'm sure it's good, but I find nik! easier and faster.

Almost anything would be faster than neat image.
I don't find it that hard to use, but there is a learning curve.

This site sells photoshop actions which I hear good things about:

They are customized for the different cameras, I bet the D100 is one of them.

The Nikon Capture Editor software contains a noise reduction module.....but I've never needed to use it (yet).
