Nikon pushes the envelope with their Coolpix S500, which features ISO settings up to 2000. While that may result in better nighttime or action photos, it's hard to believe that there won't be a significant amount of image noise at that sensitivity. Nikon has taken great pains to avoid that fate, however, adding enhanced noise reduction to the S500's image processor. The S500 also features optical image stabilization, which is quite nice, especially in such a compact camera.
