Hello Nikonians,

I am a newbie to digital SLR(D100). I shot some night scenes tonight, with shutter speed at around 30s, and the pictures turned out to be very noisy(so many hot pixels). I then tried 10s, still have many hot pixels. at 5 seconds, it starts getting better. I didn't want to use NR just to keep details. I just wondering how you guys shooting night scenes with long exposure w/o NR? Do you guys have many hot pixels at 10s shutter speed?

Thanks much
