Again there's not a lot in it, but i think - excessive contrast and sharpening aside - the H1 is doing a better job of balancing the need to reduce noise with the desire to keep as much detail in the image as possible. Both cameras exhibit fairly low luminance noise, but both also show visible color noise in shadows and darker mid-tones.
