Noise Ninja Custom Profiles For Fujifilm Finepix S5700 S700 Download

If you're using the excellent Noise Ninja noise reduction software, and have a Fuji Finepix S5700 or S700 Digital Camera, you may be interested in downloading the custom profiles I've created.


In order to create these profiles I took pictures of the colour grid (slightly blurred to hide the grain of the paper) at every ISO, then opened up Noise Ninja and profiled all the resulting photographs. If you fancy having a go yourself, its very easy, just see the help files that come with Noise Ninja, which include a copy of the colour grid for you to print out. (The white sheet of paper is to set a custom white ballance.)

First thing you need to do is Download My Custom Noise Profile. (Right click, Save As / Save Target As / Save Link As).

Next unzip the file, right-click "extract files" or "unzip files" and copy the folder somewhere safe, perhaps in your docs or program folder.

Next up you need to fire up Noise Ninja, via Photoshop or the stand-alone application (you'll have to load a photo to access Noise Ninja in Photoshop), then click "Profiles", "Install Profiles", and show the program where the downloaded directory is.

Now we want to change the settings in Noise Ninja so that it'll automatically try and profile the photograph with our custom profiles (by matching the ISO), or if it can't, use the auto-profiler.

Click "Noise Ninja", then "Preferences", and you're looking for the "start-up behaviour" box. Make sure that Start-Up Policy is "Auto-Load Profile Based On Exif", and the Fallback Policy is to "Invoke Automatic Profiler". It should look something like this:

Click ok, and we're done!

Now every time you invoke the Noise Ninja Plug-in, it'll scan the exif data, and apply the approriate custom noise profile. If it can't do that, it'll use its auto profiler. Simple.

A note about the settings I used to create these profiles: My S5700 was set to a resolution of 7mp(n). I used the F-Standard colour setting. I used a custom white ballance. Sharpness was set to std.

Thanks, Rob.

Hi Rob, any chance you can make the profile for S700 available for download again? The zip file seems to be missing. Thank you!
