And the image being nosier is a common complaint by people who purchased a Ninja.

Re: C100 very noisy

Try as I may, Gary, I'm unable to find a consensus (or nary a peep) of discussion that the Ninja when used with the C100 produces a noisier result.

What I did find was Paul Joy's nice review of this combination, and the side by side comparisons he posted of AVCHD vs the Ninja. In all 4 comparison shots there is a negligible difference between the images in terms of noise, and in almost all the shots there is a slight advantage to the Ninja version in the relative smoothness of the grain pattern. I'll exit this discussion by saying that this matches up exactly with what I see on my C300 and the samurai blade.

FYI Canon is releasing/released the xf200 which should improve the low light capabilities of the xf line of cameras.
