You know if you didn't use high iso THEN you would not need to worry so much about noise reduction. You only need high iso if you need a fast shutter otherwise forget it. Most of my low light and night is shot at 50 or 100. If I need to freeze action I go higher - whatever the body can do with acceptable noise in my case 6400. Only if desperate to get the shot eg magic street shot or family will I go for a noisy iso.
