Shot with the camera braced inside an I-beam in the New York City subway system, this shot would be total guesswork if your camera doesn't have Live View mode. In this case, the articulated LCD helped immensely in framing the shot and image stabilization gave peace of mind.
Shot details: 1/8 sec.; f/6.3; ISO 800; Leica D vario-elmar 14mm-to-50mm f/3.8-to-f/5.6 ASPH lens zoomed to 40mm (80mm equivalent).

This image is a compilation of 100-percent-zoomed crops from our test scene. Though there is a noticeable loss of fine detail, such as the numbers and hash marks on the measuring tape, at ISO 800 and ISO 1,600, the DMC-L10 still yields usable images throughout its sensitivity range. Like the Olympus E-410, we found some minor off-color non-ISO-related noise, visible here as bluish speckles around the text on the page at lower ISOs.

While not totally perfect, the L10 did a good job of automatically balancing the color on this shot of an indoor parking lot. With a mix of natural daylight coming through the entrance from which I shot, and ugly fluorescent lighting on the inside, a lot of cameras would have destroyed the colors from one or the other light source, but the L10 keeps both close to neutral, while maintaining the look of the actual lighting situation as it was in real life.
Shot details: 1/25 sec.; f/3.8; ISO 400; Leica D Vario-elmar 14mm-to-50mm f/3.8-to-f/5.6 ASPH lens zoomed to 14mm (28mm equivalent).

Even though this image was shot handheld at 1/15 of a second and an equivalent of 80mm, I still got rather sharp results thanks to the kit lens' optical image stabilization.
Shot details: 1/15 sec.; f/6.3; ISO 1,600; Leica D vario-elmar 14mm-to-50mm f/3.8-to-f/5.6 ASPH lens zoomed to 40mm (80mm equivalent).
