    When the sensor is on for a long time, it heats up, heat creates noise. Also there might be some amp noise where surrounding electronics create (on nikon's) purple magenta spots around the corners and cover a good portion of the frame.

    Long exp. noise reduction shoots a picture of the back of your curtain and uses that as a reference to cancel out any noise that you could get in your exposure.

    quick googling brought this up which illustrates it:

    It's generally for exposures longer than a second, yeah? Good to know where it is so you can turn it on if you want.
