    Is High iso noise reduction turned on maybe?

    It was, and I am wondering if that could be the issue? Surely not that much though?

    Side-tracking for a moment, here's something else I don't understand.

    One of these is taken at ISO450, the other at ISO3600. Want to guess which is which?

    Crop and noise reduction in PP is very similar.

    Normally, ISO450 is clean as a baby's bottom, and ISO 2500 is a struggle to clean up...

    Sorry, I meant long exposure noise reduction. This effectively takes a second shot with shutter closed to record hot pixels which is used to adjust original image. This effects raw files, whilst high iso noise reduction does’nt. This will likely half your battery life.

    Pete, keep in mind that noise is caused by more than just high ISO..............I have seen photos @ ISO 100 with noise.......the I have also seen high ISO photos with very little noise

    Peter, which version of the EN-EL15 do you have? I have both the Li-ion01 and Li-ion20. The Li-ion20 lasts almost double the number of shots and it is the latest one.

    My test today was with a li-ion20.
    I do have a li-ion01 somewhere. Maybe i must try that one also

    Ben, yes, I never use long-exposure NR. It causes horrible gaps when stacking star trails.

    Bertie, yes, but it feels like in previous cameras I had a pretty good idea of what noise I was liable to get when I pressed the button. With the D500, it feels like a lottery.

    OK, so my own test, 30-second exposures at ISO100 and cable release on Ch drive mode last night gave me 328 exposures. So maybe high ISO or high-ISO NR are factors.

    More testing tonight.

    All my tests have been done with Li-Ion-20's.

    Tested last night iso 2500. Only got 67 on fully charged li-ion20.

    Googled a bit but cannot find articles mentioning this extra power usage at higher iso's

    I think I have a workable solution.

    The photos attached are identical in all respects, except that one was shot at ISO6400 with exposure left as is, the other was shot at ISO400 and lifted four stops in post. All other settings were identical (30-second exposures at f8 and 15mm, both types of in-camera NR turned off), and all other PP settings were the same.

    The cropped sections are nearly 100%, and I can't really see any difference between them. Thus, as I had read somewhere, the camera is to all intents and purposes ISO-invariant from ISO400 upwards.

    Thereafter, I shot 106 30-second exposures at ISO400. Battery was showing 50% when I started, and 18% when I finished. Thus, I should be able to get 300-350 exposures on a fully charged battery in this way.

    I still have a lot to learn, thank you fo sharing! Had to google what ‘iso invariant’ means, found this website very helpful:

    Hi all,
    I do have both the D750 and the D500 and use both bodies on my trips into the bush.
    Both are great cameras , my D750 has had the shutter upgrade done at no cost by Nikon(on a service advisory) even though I never experienced any problems.
    I have a 150-600 lens on the D500 for birds and wildlife, and a wide angle 24-120 on the D750 for landscapes and panoramas.
    The DX D500 gives me the reach and speed for action shots and birds in flight, whilst the full frame D750 is superb for landscape, portraits and street photography.Both perform well in low light with the D750 having the edge, but for action there is nothing to beat the D500 unless you can afford a D5.
    I upgraded to the D750 from a D90 a few years ago, and ,recently upgraded from a D7100 to the D500 and both changes to the higher spec. cameras have had a significant impact on the quality of the pictures I am now taking.
    Must however emphasise that the time taken to learn and apply the technology AND correct settings in these new bodies is essential - Practice and experiment to see what works for you.

    I must say, that's a very nice combination.
