When you move to ISO 800 you can see that there is some method to Panasonic's noise reduction madness; the Casio output is so noisy that it's difficult to see any situation when the discerning user would consider it acceptable. By keeping as much luminance information as possible the Panasonic result has at least kept some detail, though of course the chroma bleeding and smearing put a limit on the usefulness of the output.
