Thanks for your replies 👍

one of the settings I am a little confused with is the Noise reduction settings, I have looked at some user reviews and found some conflicting opinions.....

what do people set this to ? I don’t mind grain especially in B+W , I would rather have a sharper image with a bit of noise !!

should it be in “auto” or “off” ?


I’m a total maniac about NR. I always turn it off. But it’s all about you and what you like. You can aways do some tests to see whether you like the NR processed image results. Also NR in my opinion when needed can be better controlled by eye in whatever software you use. And applying NR separately to luma and chroma (different amounts) gives more nuanced results. Even when converting to monochrome this works.

So from what you say - NR off!
