nr flashing on top plate

After taking a long exposure say 5 mins it takes about 5 mins again for the preview to show, during which time "nr" flashes on the top plate LCD, is this normal?

Isn't that the indicator that the dark frame subtraction Noise Reduction is being done? That can be turned off if you do your own noise reduction in post.

Yes I think that is the case.
If anyone is interested I have been trying out a Machine Mart welders mask replacement glass as an ND filter, it also fits into a Cokin P holder.
A green cast is produced which easily removed and the results are reasonably good.
