Default Noise Ninja

After reading a review of a dozen programs I decided to buy Noise Ninja rather than NeatImage. It seems to have some advantages including being faster and a brush that can be used to apply the noise reduction ( or go back to the original) in just areas you choose.

I understand that both porgrams work very well, and having played with Noise Ninja for a day I can report that the results are little short of amazing.

Was that a comparative review and is it available on the internet? If so, can you post a link?

Also, did you compare NN to NI version 2 or version 3?

alexo,
I thought the best and most comrehensive review was at http://www.michaelalmond.com/Articles/noise_print.html
However checking just now, I see the site is temporarily down.

You can "google" though and gets lots of others.

As I said, it looks like both programs work very well.

Still in Google's cache, minus the pictures.

He tester Neat Image 2.5+, version 3.0 is allegedly much faster.

Neat Image is a good program. I used the filter with a potentially good photo bought by my 75-300 USM Canon in a low light gym environment, and here's the result: http://www.brrd.ab.ca/nnorway/carrwe..._filtered2.jpg

I'm happy with it. The Bokeh isn't terrible. Believe me, the ISO grain was bulky and fat, yet Neat Image seemed to wipe out the noise, and give me close to what I was looking for. And that with a relatively inexpensive 75-300 USM.

I'm sure that neither you nor me will soon rush away from this program. It has conclusively proven itself to both of us, and that's nifty!

I see the site I linked earlier is back up again. He only reviewed Noise Ninja 1.0 too.

As he said, the noise reduction by the two programs is nearly identical, but NN retains brightness better and is faster. Have a look at his actual examples.

I only have Noise Ninja, so don't really know. NN does work very well for me
