What's the best noise reducer software?

For higher ISO shots what works the best? I've done some searches and found the following:

Noise Ninja
Dfine
Nik Software
Topaz Labs

When it really boils down to it the best noise reduction is not to have it in the first place. The really cool thing about the newer cameras is that the megapixel war is over and they are making chips that handle higher ISO better. I myself have been trying to balance using as low a ISO as possible with the f stop I want and using the histogram to adjust the ISO into the gram I want.

Technically anything over around 200 ISO adds noise to the shot, and adding software algorithms into the mix only add different noise. It is a trade-off when you want to get the shot and light is not cooperating!

I know this really does not answer your question, and I am going to subscribe to your post to see what the pros know!

They will all work pretty well...Even with the best of them there is always the loss of some detail...I use Dfine from Nik as it works well with my Capture NX2 software...

A lot of the industry uses noise ninja..but like everyone says...they're all good.

Download the trial versions, and try them out for yourself. Years ago I tried Noise Ninja, Noiseware Pro, and Neat Image. They all seemed to work well, but I liked the interface and workflow of Noiseware Pro so I went with that.

It's very rare these day that I use any noise reduction other than what's available in Adobe Camera Raw, and much of my photography is done at ISO 800+. The cameras have gotten amazing!
