Re: LR automatic noise reduction when importing

For a Nikon D300s, ISO 200-6400 in 1/6 stops = 31 presets. ( I didn't do below ISO 200)

It sounds like a lot, but it took me about an hour to create a normal preset and a default import preset for each one.

It is not really all that complicated as you imply. The original problem described here can be dealt with by making the default settings ISO-specific. Then, choose an image that was taken at that ISO, make the noise adjustments, and then save the defaults.

When in a dark environment requiring speed (e.g. high school sports in a dark gym) I often shoot in manual mode with shutter speed locked (due to the need to freeze the action) and fixed Aperture (my 85 f/1.4 will open too wide with too shallow of DOF and not be sharp so I will set it at say f/2)) and use auto ISO to get the exposure right. Auto ISO increments much smaller than the dial does.

Bottom line, going through every possible ISO could take a while...
