New user of FZ-200, needs help with noise reduction settings and post processing
Dec 20, 2013

I am a new owner of the FZ-200. I brought the camera with me to a concert in a very dark auditorium last night. I kept the camera in A mode, f/2.8, ISO 1600 and shot in RAW format, and the results were OK except for ugly noise. However, there are two things I have questions on:

1. What is the recommended in-camera setting for noise reduction?

2. What program do you recommend for RAW processing, SilkyPix? I have a copy of SilkyPIX but am not sure if there is a recommended workflow in that program. I also have Topaz DeNoise 5 and Photoshop CS3 as well as Lightroom 4.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
