Default Sony "Image Data Converter 2"

Today I shot this image under severe conditions with my A200. The photo was taken in JPEG/RAW mode. The JPEG was processed with Picassa and the RAW was processed with I.D.C.2. The temperature was 101 degrees(no telling what the ramp temperature was) and both images were cropped and sharpened equally. EXIF data shows ISO800 and f16.

My conclusion is that the noise reduction ability of I.D.C.2 is very good and the latest version is available free to all Sony DSLR users having the earlier version which did not have the noise reduction capability.

I have used the 3.2 and cannot see where it is improved over the 2.0. The 2.0 is actually easier at converting back to JPEG. I hope that someone will chime in to explain the improvements made by 3.2.
