    The Raw version is much grainier. How would I fix that, I shoot Raw + Jpeg. but would like to know how to get rid of the grainy-ness on the RAW version. Its most noticable in low light images for me. Thanks!
    I'm only guessing, but you might have long-exposure noise reduction turned on in the setup menu, which would apply a noise reduction filter to the JPEG only. Just give the RAW file a noise-reduction filter, and you can adjust the amount of noise reduction to help keep detail that way.

    Should I shoot JPG or RAW?
    Checked the settings and the long-exposure noise reduction is turned on. So that makes sense. Ive added a noise reduction filter on the RAW file and its exactly that what it needed. Its retained the details, but removed the grainyness , and made the whole feel glossier and warmer. I can be more specific and add the filter to only the area above the fireplace, but wanted to show you the before and after. Much better imo.

    Just be aware that when applying noise reduction, quite often it softens the image (or area where it's applied). Usually there are at least 2 types of noise reduction options: Luminance noise reduction and Color noise reduction. And you should be able to tweak those settings under additional sliders or settings for Luminance Detail and Color Detail. Those help by allowing you more control of just how much noise reduction is done.

    There are several different programs that handle noise reduction. Photoshop and Lightroom have it built in. The Nik Collection (aka DXO Mark software) has Dfine. But one that appears to be really impressive is the one Jake demonstrated by Topaz. It's called DeNoise AI. And no doubt other companies offer noise reduction. Just be sure to learn how to adjust the amount of noise reduction that you are applying.
