I'm shooting lots of low light sports at ISO 6400. I shoot raw and adjust noise in PSE9. Seems people say Noise Ninja (and similar programs) do a better job. As I use PSE9, and NN works as a plug-in, it seems to be a good choice.
My main question is the pro or home bundle option. 16 bit vs. 8 bit. I normally work with the raw file and then convert to JPEG to upload. Does NN (as a PSE plug-in) work in the raw editor (need 16 bit version) or the JPEG (8bit). I guess I could also convert the raw to a tiff to use the 16 bit, but that would probably be too much extra workflow. I'm also considering the pro version for batch processing (read the home doesn't batch). I usually process about 50 - 150 pics a day.
Anyone have some advice on which version (or even a different noise program)?

We've exchanged comments over in the Sports forum. I am routinely shooting sports in the ISO 6400-12800 range with a D700 and for noise removal successfully use Noise Ninja. I shoot only jpegs and use the plug-in version of NN with Elements 6 for Mac. I recommend NN after getting good results with it for four years.
