Summary: As you'll see in my Casio Exilim EX-H10 review, there is a lot to like about the Casio EX-H10 digital camera. The EX-H10 is a good looking camera, and its 12.1 megapixels of resolution are great for making large prints. This camera's 10X optical zoom lens -- with its strong wide angle lens capabilities -- is outstanding and is the best feature of the EX-H10.
However, this camera also has a few drawbacks that will leave some photographers looking for a different camera.
Pros: 10X optical zoom lens is very handy, Lens even offers some nice wide angle options, Continuous shot modes work extremely well, Large, bright LCD, Best Shot mode is handy and built-in help explains each mode
Cons: Camera's menu structure is a little confusing, Low-light shooting performance needs to be better, Placement of flash on camera body can leave it blocked by a finger, Price could be a little lower
Excerpt: With a 24-240mm lens in a compact body, a super-long battery life and HD video, is the H10 Casio’s biggest camera-related hit of the year? The What Digital Camera Casio EXILIM EX-H10 review takes...
Excerpt: Although the pocket megazoom category of digital cameras is still brand-new, the good-looking Casio EXILIM Hi-Zoom EX-H10 claims a subset of that subcategory all by itself. This compact, 10X-optical-zoom model emphasizes fun, beginner-friendly features rather than advanced controls.
The 10X-optical-zoom EX-H10 aims to please a younger crowd with its fun in-camera features.

Summary: With its emphasis on fun, the Casio Exilim EX-H10 digital camera is clearly geared toward a younger crowd or to users looking for a "beginner's megazoom". If it's entertaining in-camera features you're looking for, the EX-H10 should be at the top of your list.
Pros: Very fast 10x optical zoom lens, fun in-camera features and auto modes
Cons: Loud zoom lens motors, lack of manual controls
Summary: A rather nice small digital camera that I have had a chance to review for slightly longer than the normal two weeks which means I can delve more fully into the various styles available with it while taking out and about with me.
Excerpt: The Casio EX-H10 is an extremely well-made, compact digital camera, with a shiny metallic grey metal body and excellent overall finish. It's just about small enough to fit into the palm of your hand, measuring 102.5 (W) x 62.0 (H) x 24.3 (D)mm. The EX-H10 will fit inside either a trouser or shirt pocket or handbag, and it only weighs 164g without the battery or memory card fitted.
Pros: Solid feel build and long lens reach coupled with smaller than average dimensions for such a feature set, which includes the latest must-have of HD movie capture not to mention longer than average battery life
Cons: Average image quality for its class, tricky to get a completely sharp shots when shooting handheld at extremities of the zoom, positioning of the built-in flash means that fingers can sometimes stray in front, zoom disabled in movie mode and no HDMI out
