These are 100 percent crops taken from the center of our test scene. At small sizes, you can see that the photos are overly soft, even at the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX10's lowest sensitivity, ISO 100. Viewed larger, though, you can really see the lack of fine detail and noise, which just gets worse at higher ISOs. Of course, if you never do any cropping or enlarging and only make small prints and view photos at normal screen sizes, the photos will likely be good enough. However, because the WX10's overall results were not as good as Sony's other Exmor R-sensor cameras, it got a lower rating than models such as the WX9 and HX7V.
