In low light, noise and motion artifacts are tradeoffs. Are you getting noise because you've set the ISO "too high"? You might try multiple shots of the same image with different speed / ISO settings. Drop the ISO until motion artifacts become unacceptable. It's a subjective game. But the point of expensive equipm… see more In low light, noise and motion artifacts are tradeoffs. Are you getting noise because you've set the ISO "too high"?

But the point of expensive equipment like this is that you should be able to get a good image with less of both noise and motion artifact. see less In low light, noise and motion artifacts are tradeoffs.

If you underexposure on any camera you will see noise. Make sure your exposures are on the mark and tell everyone here the exact scenario for your shooting, otherwise it is very difficult to help you.

For low light photography, you need a fast lens. F/2 or even f/1.4. Also the white balance is very important under artificial light.
6400 ISO is a fairly high ISO, even for this camera.
Are you pixel peeping? Then you will see noise. Just reduce the image to the final size you want to display it at and the noise will a… see more

You need to give a lot more info about your night shooting for a decent attempt at an answer.

Im guessing if you cant figure out why there is noise in the image... perhaps you shouldnt have spent so much on this camera. Noise is due to one of TWO things. Long exposure... and/or High ISO. This camera has a workable range of Appx ISO2200. Sure it goes WAAAAY higher but it WILL HAVE artifacts. Long exposures over … see more Im guessing if you cant figure out why there is noise in the image... perhaps you shouldnt have spent so much on this camera. Noise is due to one of TWO things. Long exposure... and/or High ISO. This camera has a workable range of Appx ISO2200. Sure it goes WAAAAY higher but it WILL HAVE artifacts. Long exposures over a few seconds usually requires a long exposure noise reduction setting to be enabled. Consult your owners manual or srart digging in the settings to do this. see less Im guessing if you cant figure out why there is noise in the image... perhaps you shouldnt have spent so much on this camera.
