Excessive noise after firmware update on D300
Nov 11, 2008

Every six months I get to take great photo's of fireworks - new year in Sydney and Guy Fawkes night in the UK. This year the Sydney shots were OK (for an amateur), but the guy fawkes shots this week were so noisy I felt I was using a ten year old digital camera. The only thing that's different from the new year shots is the firmware (1.10) upgrade - I seldom shoot in the dark for 6+ seconds so never really get to test the sensor much in the extreme case - now I'm seeing noise everywhere - its a bit like a tooth cavity, feels worse than it is. So am I imagining this or has anyone else experienced increased sensor noise? Bye the way my settings are much the same as before on the D300.
