This is the (very long) thread where people tracked down what was going on with the GH1. It is an interesting read.

From that thread this post is a summary someone did of what the various ISO/NR settings for the GH1 did:

One interesting result from that is that at ISO800 with NR 0 you do get RAW NR applied, the only "standard" ISO that does that at the default setting. If you look at the DxO SNR 18% data for the GH1 you'll see a strange bump up at ISO 800. This was before DxO checked for RAW NR, looks like they got spoofed by the weird GH1 NR behavior as well!

Does anyone know if this GH1 behavior was addressed in subsequent firmware updates? Specifically:

(1) Is NR still applied in camera to RAW files?

(2) Is the in-camera NR + - setting still backwards for RAW, but correct for JPG/video?

If so, what do folks who like to shoot RAW+JPG do? Put up with noisy JPGs or soft RAWs?
