High ISO in Compact Cameras

If you’ve not read this article over at DPReview.com, you need to.

It’s a very well written article that explains the problems and limitations of high ISO settings in compact digital camera.  It’s got some comparisons of the rather popular compact cameras that show just how these high ISO settings aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.

After seeing these results, the Fuji FinePix F30 (at $289, it’s a steal) just moved up to the top of my shopping list.
