Just discovered the change below brings back detail!!!!

REAL GOOD, TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

(kind of pissed it weren't discovered sooner...)

my new ACR NR scheme will be: 
if
ISO = under 640, 640, 800, 1000, 1250, 1600, 2000, 2500, 3200
then:
luminence = 20, 34, 37, 40, 43, 47, 50, 54, 60
luminence detail =  20, 34, 37, 40, 43, 47, 50, 54, 60
(used to be 1/2 luminence, but never below 20)
(just changed to same as luminence = brings back natural detail)
luminence contrast = always 20
color = always 20
color detail = always 20

Which make and model of cameras are you using Jeff?

 

I only ask as it may make a difference if others are using different.

Just tried it with some of my 'low light' images, Jeff.  Used your exact figures with my Sony RX100 M3.  First impressions - very promising.

 

Thanks

I have a batch of low light images about to be uploaded, processed by my usual method, if it fails I will redo using Jeffs method and try again.

 

These images were taken with a Sony RX100 M3.

 

Coincidence John.:)

(just changed to same as luminence = brings back natural detail)
luminence contrast = always 20
color = always 20
color detail = always 20

I don't tend to use luminance NR (luminance NR = 0 in ACR) for my RX100 M3, but then I rarely shoot above ISO 200.

I suppose if you extrapolate from the body of your sequence you get (roughly)

 

ISO 640 = 20, 20 (luminance, luminance detail)

ISO 500 = 17, 17

ISO 400 = 14, 14

ISO 320 = 11, 11

ISO 250 = 8, 8

ISO 200 = 5, 5

So pretty similar to me at ISO 200.

 

I just tried your settings at ISO 640 and they look pretty good to me. Some very slight loss of detail, but good NR.

My batch of low light images have passed QC but will be pleased to try out Jeff's scheme above on my next batch.
