Yea, made this mistake myself on a really important photo...

I daren't look at the raw data of the file for what I may see. Is there any way to correct this sort of noise in post?

Or, to put it more simply, long exposures have to be in single shot mode or you will get horrid noise. Mildly annoying if you know, a disaster if you don't (ask me how I found out...).

By the way, I do like this camera, a lot. The basic functions work very well, and although I'll be doing the testing to confirm today, the "IQ" (a much mis-used phrase) seems to be exceptional. This would be a very good camera if it were full sized, as a tiny camera it is a small miracle.

But it is full of traps for the unwary and has, in my opinion, more than the usual number of quirks, configuration limitations, firmware annoyances and stupid default choices, and I will carry on finding them, complaining about them, and warning people about them. It doesn't mean I'm not, on balance, pleased with the camera. I'd rather have something with teeth-grindingly stupid minor annoyances than something with so-so IQ or neck-breaking mass.
