I use Nikon D3100 and its image quality was okay and sharp enough. Recently I updated its firmware from 1.00 to 1.01 for the Nikon support page claimed this :
When Noise reduction in the shooting menu is set to On, operation is as follows.
Processing to reduce noise is performed at all ISO sensitivity settings. Noise reduction is especially effective with shooting at high ISO sensitivities.
However, after the update, the overall quality and sharpness of the images being taken has reduced. I would like to know what went wrong and if its reversible, how do I go back to my previous firmware of 1.00.
