Noise reduction before raw file is written??????????????????
1

Where did you take this information?  I want your references.  By definition, a raw file is a map of the electron count of each photosite, not pixel.  What can be applied by the manufacturer, is a correction of the luminance value per pixel to cover for manufacturing variations.  The other map that's applied to a raw file is the defective (dark/hot) pixel correction.  I never read anywhere that a noise reduction is applied at the raw file level.  Anyway, this would not correct the shown images.  The blacks are not black on lifted images.  The image is fulle of read out/ dark noise.  Maybe because of hot weather or a hot sensor (use of live view ).
