The Shooting Menu
o Noise Reduction
At shutter speeds slower than 1/4 second, “noise” in
the form of randomly-spaced, brightly-colored pixels
may appear in pictures, particularly in shadows. When
you take pictures in dark places, this option is used to
reduce “noise” at slow shutter speeds.
Restrictions on Noise Reduction
Cannot be used with CAuto bracketing, xWB bracketing (c93), BSS (c92) or
Continuous settings other than rSingle (c89) even if this option is set to On.
When raising ISO sensitivity (c50), “noise” may appear in a picture.
In this case, “noise” in pictures taken at slow shutter speeds will be reduced automatically
when Noise reduction is On.
Rotate the mode dial to P or A and press the m but-
ton to select Noise reduction, and then press d.
Noise reduction off; camera functions normally.
Noise reduction takes effect at slow shutter speeds which
cause “noise.” Time required to save pictures in the mem-
ory or on the memory card more than usual.
