Excessive noise in D300
11 months ago

I shoot many subjects in many lighting conditions with my D300. I have found, however that there is excessive noise under circumstances where I don't think there should be. I am aware that above ISO 800, the D300 can present excessive noise in shadow and/or dark areas. And I am aware that long exposures will also give substantial noise and that the in-camera LENR does not kick in until the exposure exceeds 8 sec. But, in a recent situation, I shot inside an art gallery of people at 1/25 sec, f8 and ISO 800 VR on, no flash. There was substantial noise even in the face of  a person with medium complexion. Unfortunately, I do not have a NR program yet. Any suggestions?
