I hear you on that, I think the word some is correct, but why just some and not all at high ISO ?
An example : ten years ago any camera at base ISO would give you some noise, some were worse than others so you were reliant on the likes of Noise Ninja and Neat Image to clean things and you would accept some noise on a final image, move forward to today and any decent dslr should be good to 6400 or even 25,600.....maybe that's pushing it a bit but some can hold it down. It all comes down to the software to handle the noise, different makes do things differently and produce different results. I'm just wondering as it's just some images that are affected (a very small number) whether there is a link between them, some common denominator that could explain it as I remember it happening to a small number before Trueform was introduced. Could it be down to a specific make, or something in the file make up, the exif, there has to be a trigger that makes this happen to only a few.
This particular shot was only on 800. I don't even think of 800 as being a high ISO with my camera (Nikon D500) and I don't generally need to apply any noise reduction at all at that level. As I said, it's fine on any other viewer at any size.
