Higher Noise levels at high ISO values are caused because the signal has been amplified. Please note that Capture One automatically adds an amount of noise reduction based on individual image evaluation. ...

Reducing Moiré Suppress Moiré patterns in digital images - What is Moiré? - Supress Moiré What is Moiré? In simple terms Moiré can occur when capturing a subject with fine pattern details.
