At ISO 400 the F10's superior high ISO performance really shows itself, and though the SD450 isn't bad for a camera using this sensor, the results are only really suitable for printing at fairly small sizes.

Once again, the Canon ISO 400 setting is around a stop more sensitive than the Fuji ISO 400 setting (which is actually very close to ISO 400 when measured against our light meter), and this needs to be taken into consideration when comparing the noise levels.
