With the announcement of the new Canon 5D Mark IV, I have had some questions about noise reduction and improvements on the new hardware. While there are some definite improvements in this area there is a caveat.
In Camera Noise Reduction only applies to camera created JPEG images and will only apply to RAW files if you are processing with Canon's DPP software. Who uses that? Not me.
So that leaves you with Post Processing Noise Reduction. Lightroom and Camera RAW have a pretty decent noise reduction algorithm. But you don't have a ton of control.
Where does that leave you? 3rd party options. One that I have been paying some attention to is Noiseless by Macphun. Sorry PC folks, this isn't for you.
Here is a video overview of Noiseless
