At ISO 400 the difference is even more pronounced, with the SD 800 IS losing even more detail to noise reduction, and noise considerably more visible. There's no doubt that conventional CCD cameras are getting much better at ISO 400, closing the gap slightly, but this comparison shows just how much better this particular Super CCD sensor is.
