At ISO 800 we're firmly into 'emergency use only' territory, with lots of noise and a loss of fine detail. That said, once again I have to give Canon credit for not blurring away all the detail with noise reduction, and for small prints you could easily get away with using this setting when you had to. The noise is marginally less intrusive than it was on the A700, though there is little measurable difference, and I'd say it was down to noise reduction (the A710 IS appears to have lost marginally more fine detail than the A700 - in a print these two pictures would look exactly the same).
