Mudplucker, RAW gives a good noise performance up to around ISO 200 on a starter DSLR body. DPP has default noise reduction settings and those are the most efficient set of settings....for ISO 200 to 800.

I transfer a 16 bit image to Photoshop and do the editing and save it as 8 bit AT LAST. Saving 8 bit at first robs you of the extra dynamic range. Just like sharpening at first destroys details.
But if you aren't doing any huge changes, then 8 bit is nice. :)

Completely agreed. I use exactly the same strategy: "RAW->16bit-TIFF, processing, noise reduction + sharpening, saving in 8bit-JPEG".

Thanks for sharing, i used to use topaz denoise which is really great but have now started to use Nik dfine2 which i like a lot. I generally only need to use the noise reduction over the sky and with dfine2 i can paint this onto the the area that i want reduced. If i set the opacity to something like 25% i can slowly add reduction without going overboard. Great software.

Thanks for the additions everyone, this article has gathered some really useful content now!
Edjbartos, If you use noise reduction on the sky, you can use channel specific noise reduction (in which you remove noise from only one channel. For skies, the blue channel is usually properly exposed and has less noise. So you apply noise reduction on the other two channels only. Chroma noise reduction must be applied on all three though. That preserves most details).
