Default Pocket Camera at ISO 1600 - Great IQ! Wow!

A camera that produces really good image quality at numerically high ISO settings is often asked for on this Forum.

Here is an example of what the Canon SD-4000 can do in a low light/no flash photo environment. This was was taken with one overhead 60W light bulb at an ISO setting of 1600. The result even surprised me. Tell me what you think, please. Thanks in advance for your comments.

There was a 3-way comparison that included the S95, SD4000 and another camera on one of the review sites (IR?). High ISO on the SD4000 wasn't far behind the 2 cameras w/ larger sensors.

Five0-

You are correct I remember that comparison and my posted photo seems to verify that fact. Now if the SD-4500 did as well...
