Re: Which Noise Reduction sofftware?

I do not own a Sony900, but do own a Sony A100 (as well as other camera brands) and the Sony certainly has a noisy sensor at higher ISO's. I have found the best approach to reduce noise while still keeping the maximum possible detail - and I am very fussy about this, was to use a RAW converter that was best suited in the first place. After trying many, I now use a free download version of Phase One's Capture One4. The detail extraction/noise removal control really does an excellent job. The final bit of very fine luminance noise which remains is easily removed with Neat image without harming even very fine contrast detail.

After trying quite a few methods and systems I believe that just using a noise removal tool after conversion by a less suitable program is not the best way to go.
