    Noise, IQ180 and CI 7.

    I'm not sure yet because I'm not working on at home where I have comparison files but I think the noise from the IQ180 is better with C1 7 than it used to be.

    Generally I don't go above ISO 200 (unless I go with Sensor+) but the last few days I've used ISO 400 a few times and it looks a bit cleaner than I remember. This might be because I'm using the back in cold weather (?) or it might be C1 7.

    Anyone else seeing this?

    I have the IQ160 and C1 7 is definitely better at processing noisy images. I've been rerunning some of my 2-4 minute exposures and it seems cleaner than C1 6 was.

    The single pixel noise reduction slider most definitely goes to 11 in v7.

    ...it also seems that the default noise settings in C1 Pro 7 are set really high?? 50 luminance and 50 color?

    What?? Default values in C1 not being entirely appropriate out-of-box???



    Seriously though, the slider for NR is now relative to the underlying file. So 50 NR on an ISO25 leaf file and 50 NR on a ISO25,600 Nikon file will be different amounts of underlying math. I still think the "50" setting is too high on most DB low-ISO files, but it's simple enough to set your own default or create a "default" or "base" style to apply.

    ALSO, check the filter tool; since you can add filters like "ISO" and "Camera Model" to the filter list it's almost stupid-easy to select the low ISO files in a folder/session/album/catalog and treat them differently than the higher ISO files. Beats the heck out of the smart album/search in v6.

    Yup C1-7 has been an awesome CAMERA upgrade!
