Noise Reduction

I know there has been some debate about the K3 and noise at higher ISO's compared to the K5ll. Anyway, I came across a noise reduction programme that works magic into those higher ISO images and for anyone out there using a K3, you can download a trial of
Imagenomics Noiseware here

Personally i think this software is suburb.

Will try this although I find the Topaz plug-in adequate (and slightly cheaper)

I find the NR In Lightroom 4 ( and thus 5 ) works great. Much improved over LR3. And you don't need to save out to TIF to apply it

I agree - noise reduction in recent versions of LR is good enough that I stopped bothering with Topaz; really no need.

Over the last few years I have used various noise reduction software, and although Lightroom 4 and 5 have been vastly improved at reducing noise, Noiseware is without a doubt the best. As you can download a trial for free I am surprised that people have not at least given this software a go, if it is not as good as I state you can then delete it.

Smeggypants, I know you like evidence and tests, I would like to hear your opinion. Of Noiseware compared with the other programmes.
