I used Noise Ninja in the past with very good results...
Today I received a mail from a friend, telling me to give a try to PhotoNinja 1.0.
I did some test to compare with LR4, Aperture, DXO and Capture One...yes I own license for all those...bit crazy maybe...;-)
What I can see, is that this new soft is equal or better than the others with the presets by default.
It will save me a lot of time in the future, and I can use it from LightRoom as an external editor, and PhotoNinja "finds" the raw original...
Have a try, you won't regret it.
As for the price, I had a reduction because my old licence of NoiseNinja...great.

The $97 upgrade is nothing short of ridiculous. I recommend you look elsewhere, anywhere, for a better deal than this. I wound up with Noiseware and that is cheaper new than this is as an upgrade.

In short, a 25% discount, ($129 -> $97) for what should be practically any existing customer, since this hasn't been updated in what seems like forever. Personally, I find this a bit disappointing.

According to their website, it's still a 32-bit plugin, and won't show up unless you're running in 32-bit mode... which does no good since CS6 is 64-bit only.
Upshot? It won't run under CS6.

Nothing wrong at all with the quality of results it produces but a 64-bit version that works with CS5 is badly needed along with a more modern interface.

"64-bit support for 64-bit Photoshop CS4 and above on 64-bit Windows." Wonderful! Now, how about 64-bit support for Mac OS X? It's been over a year since PS CS5 was released, and still no 64-bit version of Noise Ninja in sight.

Noise Ninja just has such an outdated interface. It certainly works, which is most important though. Would like to update to the UI, more friendly, modern, etc.

That would be because the plugin is Intel only, as the product page states.

The download URL even states it is MacIntel:
