    A while ago I came across this article by Ctein:
    Can You Get Good ISO 6400 from an Olympus E-P1?
    The Online Photographer: Can You Get Good ISO 6400 from an Olympus E-P1?

    As the theme is of interest for me I gave a try.
    First I had to get a dreadful photograph to work on.
    This is the original jpeg.

    Then I followed his advice and converted the RAW pic with the supplied Oly software into a greyscale.

    The jpeg was fully denoised.

    The two layers were then combined into one picture and here is the result.

    I am afraid it gets nowhere Ctein´s example, which is very convincing, but I am no expert at this procedure and would like to get some advice on how to improve on ISO 6400

    best,
