How do i reduce noise with pen e-pl1
Set Gradation to NORMAL instead of the default AUTO.
AUTO tries to lift the shadows, introducing a lot of noise. Especially in high contrast scenes (as you would expect with light painting) this can be a problem. Same with night scenes that have some very bright parts in them (well lit areas in an otherwise dark surrounding).
Ok guys i'm using a olympus PEN e-pl1 with the kit 14-42mm lens but not the newer model of lens.So i'm shooting long exposures in an old abandoned bomb shelter.I'm using a tripod also a flash sometimes but when i make photos without a flash and do light painting there is a lot of noise and i'm shooting at iso 100 f/3.5 at 60" so how do i reduce the noise
