Sample photos: Casio Exilim EX-H10
Like most compact cameras, the H10 is good through ISO 200 in respect to noise. However, photos always looked overprocessed and soft at full resolution at all ISOs and benefit from some sharpening either after they're shot or by increasing the in-camera sharpness setting. (Though, this doesn't help the overprocessed part.) At ISO 400, subjects start to look more soft and smeary and pick up some noise. There's some color shifting, too, so bottom line, it's not the best for great high-ISO shooting.
If you're after a lot of fine detail and are doing a lot critical analysis of your photos at full resolution, then you don't want the H10. On the other hand, those after good photos for small prints and Web use and not doing a lot of heavy cropping will likely be happy.
