This shot, taken at the H10's widest angle of 38mm-equivalent, clearly shows the lens distortion--more than we should see at that narrow a focal length. It was shot head-on, yet looks as if it was shot from below.

The H10's lens isn't quite as sharp as I'd like for cropping in on details--that's also partly a function of the relatively low-resolution 8-megapixel sensor--but the photos, as a whole, look pretty sharp when printed at 10x14 inches.

In daylight, the H10 renders very good color--accurate and saturated.

Exposing a stop up (not shown), which I wanted to do to preserve the whiteness of the marble, completely blew out the detail on the book. This exposure (which the camera would automatically meter as middle gray), preserved all the highlight and shadow detail. There's generally little fringing on the H10's shots, though you can see some here (lower inset).

Like the H3 before it, the H10 displays a lot of noise and noise-suppression artifacts starting at about ISO 400. I don't suggest using ISO 800 and higher.
