C.Fn II -1     Long exposure noise reduction
0: Off
1: Auto
For 1 sec. or longer exposures, noise reduction is performed 
automatically if noise typical of long exposures is detected. This [Auto
setting is effective in most cases.
2: On
Noise reduction is performed for all exposures of 1 sec. or longer. The 
[On] setting may be effective for noise that cannot be detected or 
reduced with the [Auto] setting.
C.Fn II -2     High ISO speed noise reduction
Reduces the noise generated in the image. Although noise reduction is 
applied at all ISO speeds, it is particularly effective at high ISO speeds. At 
low ISO speeds, the noise in the shadow areas is further reduced. Change 
the setting to suit the noise level.
0: Standard
2: Strong
1: Low
3: Disable
With setting 1 and 2, after the picture is taken, the noise reduction 
process may take the same amount of time as the exposure. You cannot 
take another picture until the noise reduction process is completed.
At ISO 1600 and higher, noise might be more pronounced with setting 2 
than with setting 0 or 1.
With setting 2, if a long exposure is used during Live View shooting,

If you playback a RAW or RAW+JPEG image with the camera or print 
the image directly, the effect of the high ISO speed noise reduction may 
look minimal. You can check the noise reduction effect or print noise-
reduced images with Digital Photo Professional (provided software).
