Nikon D300 RAW images have alot of noise / artifaction

I retired my D200 and picked up a D300, to my surprise the RAW images are lousy. They have alot of noise, at ISO 400 uncompressed. I am using capture nx v. 1.3 latest version for processing. The JPG images are stunning, so my guess is that Capture NX is screwing up the images.

I have bought two Nikon D300 in the past ten days, the first camera had stuck pixels, 12 of them, red dots in every image. The second Nikon D300 is so noisey in every ISO other than 100... it is worthless to me at this point. Sharp as a tack, but so noisey, the sharpness is moot. I think I have a solution, but it will involve dumping a $164,000 Nikon equipment history over the past 30 years and embroidering new patches on my photo vest which read, CANON! The fact that I even have to consider such a move makes me nausious. Nikon has betrayed many of it's biggest fans, me being one of them. I don't know what happened at Nikon to allow them to fall so far behind Canon, who trailed Nikon for nearly 40 years, but SOMEBODY SHOULD BE FIRED!!!!

Using 200-500 Tamron on Nikon d300. When I shoot, camera freezes. Clock and exposure readout next to it, on top panel, blink. Camera will not turn off, I have to take the battery out. Lens works...


Maybe there is something wrong with your batteries? Replace them. I had the same experience with my D200 and a Nikon 18-200 lens, later with my Nikon 10.5, Sigmaa 135-400. After replacing the battery everything worked as ever.

I shoot RAW/basic jpg. I review them there is a contrast differen


This is normal. Bear in mind that the JPEG file has all the image processing done, while the RAW is just the raw data. Depending on your image settings (contrast, saturation, sharpening, etc) you may see some differences.

Can you make camera setting changes for raw in the Nikon D300 menu


To change to raw - push menu, then settings - image quality - select Raw - push ok. You're done. Raw ignores many of the other image settings, such as WB, Picture mode (Vivid, etc..); It does however pay attention to exposure compensation.

Nikon D200 incomplete RAW pictures


If youre using exposure bracketing, especially when raw+jpeg is used, this is saving out massive amounts of data to the memory card. Have you tried using a faster (80x) memory card and/or just using raw alone? You can always make the jpeg at the computer later.

Nikon SD card for D80 / D200/ D300


You should have no trouble using the SDHC cards. SDHC stands for Secure Digital High Capacity. The images should load directly from camera to computer, without the need for any additional hardware.
