At ISO 400 the differences in detail have been masked slightly by the effects of noise reduction, but the differences in the level of noise (particularly chroma noise) are much more marked, with the FX01 showing more noise - and more intrusive noise reduction - than the Canon. On a side note the SD630 result is actually very good for a camera in this class, which bodes well for the raft of models recently launched featuring the same new Sony sensor).
