I was shooting some night shots last night with my EP1 and noticed that the long exposure NR wasn't kicking in even though a few of the shots were in excess of 5 or 6 seconds. I went into the (ugly, complicated, jumbled) menu to look for a setting but the only one regarding noise seems to be the "Noise Filter" setting, which I've set to OFF as I don't want regular jpeg NR. Does this setting also turn off the long exposure NR or was I perhaps just under the threshhold for triggering it? I was also shooting at ISO 100 if that matters.

I will check the manual as well, just thought I'd pick the brains of any experienced EP1 users.

You can set it to kick in at certain shutter settings typically (I had an EP1..have EM5 now). Can't say I used EP1 for long exposures...but you want the noise filer on Auto or On for this...if it allows you to set it for whatever seconds you want (I set mine for 2sec +).. set it to that and auto..wont affect your regular JPg shooting. The JPG NR is a separate setting...Noise reduction. Noise filter is the dark frame subtraction (I'm 99% sure...going on memory). Also turn IS off when using a tripod.

Got it, so I merely hadn't waded far enough into the menus! And here I thought I was getting to know the camera's complicated personality pretty well...
