    The new FinePix S200EXR has a feature called "Pro Low-light Mode" which
    does automatic frame stacking and processing of four frames in order to
    achieve noise levels that rival that of a D-SLR.

    This seems like a good, if brute-force, method of solving the high noise
    issue at higher ISO's of small sensor cameras. Does anyone else do this
    sort of thing out of the box (not after-market firmware)?

    If you mean what I think you mean the Nikon D300 can do this and more.

    I meant P&S models. I guess it's also useful on a D-SLR, but on a P&S
    with a small sensor it really could help deal with noise problems at
    high ISO. It shouldn't be too hard to do, assuming that you don't have
    to re-focus between the frames since they're taken in such quick succession.

  4. But if there's time to take four successive shots at a high ISO so
    they can be stacked, why isn't there time to take one shot of four
    times the length of exposure at a quarter of the ISO?

    Not that this is the reason, but if there's too much subject or
    camera movement, the faster shutter speed would help, assuming that
    the camera helps out by aligning the images on the subject, rather
    than the easy way, on the frame. But it still smells like a gimmick.

    If only it worked that way in digital!

  7. It does for me. Why not for you?
