Decent Camera, but high ISO performance is terrible

Summary: Camera takes good pictures as long as you stick with low ISO settings. Even though you can set ISO up to 1600, for all practical performances 400 is the limit. The photos taken at high ISO are so noisy that they are unacceptable.
I just got this camera for Christmas, great colors, slow shooting

Summary: I just got this camera for Christmas. It takes wonderful outdoor picture with vivid colors. Indoor pictures are good, but just don't expect to get your grandchildren to sit still long enough for it to warm up to take a second picture. It takes way too long warming up before you can get another shot.
Summary: I bought this Digital Cameras about three months ago because of the good reviews particularly with the image quality.The camera truly produce very sharp and crisp images however I have noticed that the camera seems to have a problem with action shots.I have a eighteen month old baby girl who moves...
Summary: I haven't even had a chance to download my photos from my new PowerShot, so no comment on its performance. But I must say that I didn't realize that the camera would be so big and heavy. It's so difficult to tell online. I had a Canon SureShort before this and just expected it to be about the same.
Summary: Picture quality for me must be the over-riding factor when buying a camera. Handling issues can be irritating, but are usually adaptable. This Canon's pictures are, in the main, spot on. Excellent sharpness, lovely colour rendition and decent exposures.
Summary: If you wanna take a shot outdoor, you definitely get a very suitable camera with good image quality and considerably low price. But you should be desperate with image quality when you take a shot indoor or in poor light condition, it really makes me down!
Pros: Compact, good image quality, price
Cons: Poor at 10x zoom mode, LCD has nothing but 3 inches size
Summary: Unlike Canon's excellent A-Series, the SX100 doesn't have an optical viewfinder, rendering it unusable in many lighting conditions. This is very unfortunate, as its otherwise an excellent camera and has a better lens and flash. I'd recommend the Canon A720IS instead.
Summary: To start off with, my dislike of this camera has been made a bit better after I saw a few pics taken by Nikon P90. So, why don't I like it? Basically, the noise levels. I just can't stand them, as soon as ISO 200 it is quite visible, that is not at 100% either, just opened with "Windows Photo...
Summary: This is a great camera for natural good light photography. The problems start in poor light or indoors. Despite all the manual settings and the ability to force a low ASA, pictures without the flash in poor light or indoors are very grainy.
Pros: Excellent digital zoom and micro focus; great color outdoors
Excerpt: Купил его и стал сразу продавать - никто не купил так и пользуюсь. Отсутствие видоискателя оптического (глазка) - основной минус камеры. Звук на видео как на телефоне 3gp! Ужасно! Батарейки и слот для карт памяти должен быть отделен или иметь разные крышки! Мажет при движении (небольшоМ).
Pros: 10х оптический зум, скорость съёмки, опционарность, возможность ручной настройки, компактность, простота в использовании
Cons: маленький размер матрицы 1\2,5" отсутствие видоискателя оптического (глазка); безобразный звук при записи видео; в движении не умеет снимать; архидолгозаряжющаяся вспышка; немного "шумов" на фото видны даже на ярком солнце
