    Removing the "star eater" feature from the D7000

    It looks like the guys over at Nikon Hacker have figured out how to remove the feature on the D7000 that sometimes makes stars disappear when photographing them. This happens because of Nikon's noise reduction & hot pixel filtering and has been dubbed the star eater feature.

    ​Check out the details here:

    here's something that explains it a little more, but with a D70: Nikon D70 Versus Canon 10D

    Simple.
    In early days Nikon was plagued with Noise reduction & chroma reduction problems.
    So they incorporated heavy NR on their raw files making stars in the night sky disappearing.

    So this patch now combats that high NR in D7000 (and apparently D5100) so none of the stars disappear.

    Hope that makes sense
