JPEG vs. raw
Unlike in past versions of this camera, Canon includes the capability to capture raw and raw plus JPEG. If you don't mind processing the images yourself, you can get slightly improved detail, especially at higher ISOs, and fine-tune noise reduction to your liking.
The top photo here is a JPEG straight from the camera of our scene shot at ISO 800. The bottom is the raw version with minimal noise reduction. Though there is more graininess, you do get better fine detail. Viewed larger you can make out more of the differences.
