E520 - stacking to reduce noise
Sep 26, 2012

Just quick question to find out if anyone here uses image stacking to reduce noise in pictures taken in low light (the bane of the E520). What software do you use and what does your process flow look like?

I've been experimenting with RegiStax (which I downloaded some time ago for another camera that suffers from similar low-light noise problems), and the results do look promising.

Here's a the result from a 7-image stack, each picture taken at IS01600 by the E520. I've downsized them to 800x600 for viewing here, but the decrease in noise should be readily appearent.

Before: (1 image)

Stacked (7 images)
