Default CP4500 Visual noise in shadows

Hi,

Does anyone have an experience using the cp4500 or CP 5000 in low light.

I find that when photographing interiors with my cp4500 I get quite a lot of visual noise in the shadows. As much if not more than I was getting with my CP 950.

I would like to no if the CP5000 performs better than the digicams that I have mentioned above.

Thanks,

Joseph.

What shooting mode are you using? Did you adjust the ISO speed or bump up the digital noise elmination settings?

Thanks for the reply Jaseball,

I shoot at the iso 100 setting and I have tried both with noise reduction and without.

As far as I can tell the noise reduction setting does very little to improve the image.

I have not had a need to use the noise elimination settings yet because my low light shots have been clear when I adjust settings myself in manual mode.

Try this. Use manual mode in a low light situation. Have a pure white item with you like paper or something. Use the white balance setting and capture the paper as your baseline.

Depending on the lighting I would at least bump up the ISO to 200.

Leave the noise elimination off.

Try a few shots and play around and see if any of this helps.
