Sony NEX-C3 and 5n High ISO noise

These are ISO 6400 shots, same everything, auto white balance etc.

In terms of colour balance, both are actually way off. However the NEX-5n is definitely "cleaner". I thought at first that it had smudged more detail, but if you look at the middle word on the headstock, the 5n has actually recorded more detail.

Whether this is an "improved" sensor or better in-camera processing I'm not qualified to say. However I know which I prefer.

Please note:- This isn't in any way a "scientific" test, and I don't have the means to do one. However these results are similar to other comparisons that I have done. It proves only that my NEX-C3 seems noisier at high ISO's than my NEX-5n.
