I have the last version of Adobe suite CC for photographers and i use it on windows. When I open  D500 nef files with Lighroom and magnify them 100%, the files have a noise in blacks dots annoying and unmanageable even at low ISO. Equally if I open files with Camera Raw or Photoshop. This does not happen by opening the file with other programs or opening the nef files of other Nikon cameras. I think there is a problem. I uninstalled and reinstalled the sw, I installed it on another PC, I asked files to other users of the D500, but when i open a 100% NEF files, the noise is very much and very ugly. I would understand if others have this problem, But the problem there is not with nef other nikon cameras ... I can not understand...it's possible there is a inadequate  Adobe profile for nef files of Nikon D500 on windows platform (the problem not exist on mac)? Thank you for the support.

Would it possible to post a sample NEF where you see this issue (Creative Cloud or Dropbox) and share the link along with screen shots of the what you're seeing? The Camera Raw team can dig in and help troubleshoot.

Thanks Jeffrey for your support.

As an example I send two files link:

the first is the file with a screenshot of what I see by opening the file 100%
http://adobe.ly/2d4VayS

the second is the original file

have you the same view that I am?


I can send more examples at different iso. The problem is only with the D500 nef files; the problem  is not with files of other cameras or the d500 jpeg or tiff format files.

Thanks for your help. Hello

When you say "This does not happen by opening the file with other programs" which programs are looking at the NEF in?

Capture NX-D turns on a “High ISO NR” at 800. We do not read or apply noise reduction like they do at that ISO setting - the image your seeing in Lightroom has zero luminance noise reduction by default. If you disable the noise reduction in Capture NX-D, the image will look similarly noisy. Or conversely, if you enable/increase Noise Reduction in Lightroom, you'll let a less noisy image.

ok about the differences between Capture and lightroom. But I wonder why these differences are not when I open nef files of other Nikon cameras (such as D3). I sent the link to a photo and as I see it opening it up to 100% with lightroom. Also you see it like me? http://adobe.ly/2d4VayS http://adobe.ly/2dtQpkY

In our tests, the D500 is more noisy than other Nikon models.

Hello! I'm facing some problems as well. I have a picture with a car on some sand, for example. I open it in LR, no problems at first. Apply NR, the sand , zoomed in at 100% , will look like it is painted with oil brush. I apply the same amount of NR in Nikon software, and it keeps the details, doesn't alter the texture of the image. What is happening?
