At ISO 400 the difference is much more pronounced. The Casio has lost a lot more detail due to heavy noise reduction (and there's a lot more noise too - look at the face of the watch). By comparison the SD900's output is remarkably good - and certainly good enough for the average user producing prints up to 5x7 inches (or viewing on screen). There is a hint of the slightly smeary noise reduction we saw with the other DIGIC III ELPH (the SD800 IS), but it's nowhere near as obvious, and nowhere near as harmful to fine detail.
