Turning up the sensitivity both cameras exhibit significantly more noise. The S60 still manages to maintain its high detail level but at the expense of the sharp appearance of the noise pattern, overall the V50's noise is more noticable and less well contained although interestingly there are a couple of crops where it maintains better detail than the S60 (see '1997' in the last crop).
