Looks like IDC 3.2 handles noise rather well :-)  I am positively surprised of the result. I have to try ...

Thanks for the images!

Did you have NR OFF or something else?

Then you thought wrong :)   ... you're probably thinking of the a850 which is not supported in CS3/ACR 4.6  but the a900 was in the very last update for CS3 - ACR 4.6.0.30 - which pleased me greatly otherwise I'd have needed to buy CS4.

From what I've seen I might just be getting CS5 though.

Glad you mentioned that Kurt. I was about to reply that NR is turned off but thought I'd just check and what do I find - somehow I'd left it on "normal" !   ....  Ah well more testing required :)

It does look pretty impressive, worth a play about!
