NEF converted NR samples using Capture NX.

Finally installed Capture NX. Shot 6 shots (3 at ISO 1600 and 3 at ISO 3200) using the following settings:

D80 High Noise NR Off
D80 High Noise NR Norm

D80 High Noise NR Off + Noise Reduction in NX: 8% intensity + 5 Sharpness + Best Quality. No Edge Noise Reduction

Lens: AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D set to f/8

ISO 1600

ISO 3200

Samples of uncropped resized photos available at

Also, here are 2 JPEG samples to compare with the converted NEFs.

ISO 1600, NR Off, JPEG = Fine

ISO 1600, NR Norm, JPEG = Fine

Looks like I'll be sticking to NEF for high ISO shots.

Photography - It's not about the things you see but the way you see them.
