Noise reduction - anything better than LR5?
11 months ago

Hi,

I find myself shooting at ISO 800 or even 1600 a lot lately (not professionally, but as a hobby) and I find these photos to have so much noise. I tried noise reduction in LR 5.2, played with all the sliders, but I just can't make an ISO 800 shot look significantly better (cleaner from noise) without killing lots of important details.

I feel like selling this dreaded Canon 50D.

Is there some fancy software that does a (significantly) better job than LR 5.2?
