In The Field: The Pros And Cons Of Long Exposure Noise Reduction #274

Long Exposure Noise Reduction (NR) is an option in most modern digital cameras. It has its benefits and drawbacks - like most things in photography. I recently went out to Scripps Pier for some long exposure photos. I quickly realized I had Long Exposure NR in my Sony A7R turned on. How did I know? Watch the video and you’ll see it is painfully obvious when taking a 6 minute exposure! I’ll also run down the benefits and drawbacks of Long Exposure NR.

Did I miss a benefit or drawback of Long Exposure NR? Share your thoughts in the comments.
