    I have the Olympus epl1 since 2010, and I never found the difference between the two noise filter and noise reduction menu. Noise reduction can't be changed but noise filter can be change in the the pasm modes. Can any epl1 tells me how to activate noise reduction?

    Noise reduction is just dark field subtraction for long exposures. It will take a second exposure with the shutter closed after your shot to determine the electrical noise than needs to be subtracted from the image.

    It's in the F section of the menus and you can select Auto, On, or Off.
