It seems that the upgrade is the sensor pattern.

All previous compacts used a Bayer RGBG pattern, whereas the WX50 and WX70 use an RGBL pattern.

The extra luminance information is used to more selectively perform noise-reduction 2D-cleaning only in dark areas, so as to preserve detail in bright areas.

That's an interesting information. Thank you!

Do you know if the HX200 uses the RGBL pattern as well?
