The above is RAW. Silkypix predominantly uses the second, shorter exposure. In fact, except at very low shutter speeds, I cannot see when the first frame is used.

Hence the noise.

The JPEG quality would be even worse, with much more detail smeared away..

I don't doubt that the X20 has a better sensor for low light than the X10; I've read quite a lot about recent improvements in sensor technology in that regard. However, taking one low-light shot & improving the S/N ratio using software alchemy, or combining several short, low-light exposures using software alchemy, and combining one short exposure in good light with one longer exposure in good light using software alchemy, are all very, very different things, with lots of options for how to combine, etc.

But that is not what we are looking at.

You would have to apply the same sort of effects to both images.  That's why I don't like supplying RAW because unless you handle both the same (noise reduction turned off, and so on) the test becomes meaningless.
