Z980 Noise in some images and not in others.
Jan 26, 2010

I just purchased a Z980 and I am pretty happy with it except for two things that someone here might be able to help me with.

1. The lack of support for the RAW format on the mac. iphoto cannot import the images when there are RAW files on the camera. Easyshare can't even modify its own companies RAW files on a mac. Is there a good mac program to handle the KDC files produce by this camera?

2. I have shot a lot of Macros at low ISO 64-100 and some are the best I ever got and some look good but have a lot of noise (Fine Noise). Can somebody explain why some have the noise and others have so little that I can blow up the image 300% and not see any. I can't quite master the low noise images with the camera. Would reducing the Megapixels help? These macros have been shot in RAW format in manual mode with varying exposure times. I hope someone can help because I really want to love the camera.

Thanks in advance for any information provided!
