Default clear images on auto, noisy images on manual

I have a Canon S50 pocket camera. It has a full manual mode, but I
found that images are very "grainy" in the manual mode, even when I
would make all settings exactly the same as get set in auto. To avoid
that I would just set the camera to P and adjust the white balance
with + and -.

The camera just got busted, and I need a new pocket camera. I've been
happy with the S50, except for the above bug. Does anyone know what
causes that, and if newer Canons still have it?

Presumably in manual mode, you're on a high ISO setting, but in auto
mode, the camera is using a low ISO. Drop your ISO in manual to 100
and the grain will go away

Tried that, not effect. Tried dropping the ISO all the way to 50.
