It's the same story at ISO 800; the H9's chroma noise reduction (thanks to it's new Bionz processor) is heavier (though luminance NR looks a little lighter), and the output softer, but, really, we're splitting hairs here: neither camera is producing results you'd want to use for anything serious. That said, color saturation is good for an ISO 800 shot, and if you're looking to make small (postcard sized) prints from snaps of friends and family in low light then it's not totally useless.
