Ricoh CX1 review

 

Ricoh may not belong to the leading brands as far as sales numbers are concerned, but when it comes to innovations and originality; it certainly does. Ricoh manages to keep on surprising with remarkably unobtrusive cameras. A good example is the GR...

The minute Ricoh announces a new camera; I always get curious about the exciting novelties they will bring to the table this time. The brand time and again manages to come up with functions nobody else has thought of. And this also goes for the Ricoh...

Ricoh CX1 Review

 

The Ricoh CX1 is a brand new addition to Ricoh's range of 7x zoom point-and-shoot compact cameras. Offering the same versatile 28-200mm focal length as the R10, the most significant change to the CX1 is the new 9 megapixel CMOS sensor, which offers...

Ricoh have taken a big step forward with the CX1 in an area that has always been something of a thorn in their side - namely image quality. We criticized the R10 model for producing noisy images at relatively slow ISO speeds, commenting that we'd...

CX1

 

($369) is a compact metal camera featuring a 9.1 Megapixel CMOS sensor, a powerful 7.1X optical zoom lens, sensor-shift image stabilization, a super-sharp 3-inch LCD, 4 frame/second continuous shooting, and a VGA movie mode (bah). Some of the CX1's...

Good exposure and color; minimal purple fringing ; 7.1X, 28 - 200 mm lens in a compact, well-built body ; Sensor-shift image stabilization ; Super high resolution 3-inch LCD display ; Quick to focus, no shutter lag, brief shot-to-shot delays ; Very...

Heavy noise reduction smudges fine details, even at base ISO ; Redeye a problem, no removal tool available ; Weak flash ; Focus distance guide in manual focus mode nearly useless ; Dated face detection and movie features ; Image stabilizer not...

Ricoh has done a good job creating a camera that has the tools that photographers want (well, except for manual controls). Unfortunately, they aren't spending enough time on the most important feature a camera can have: good photo quality. If the CX1...

Ricoh CX1 Review: A Photographer's Compact Point and Shoot

 

Where most other camera companies are going for 720p video in their nicer point-and-shoots, Ricoh added more photo-centric features to the CX1: in-camera HDR, high-speed sequential shooting and razor-sharp macro. We've tested, and we like.

But the CX1 joins just a few other cameras that do it automatically. And it works

Ricoh CX1 compact camera

 

The Ricoh CX1 looks stylish and is undoubtedly well made once you heft the all metal compact from its box, but looks otherwise unremarkable. The black liveried version we had to test has a rather simple control layout that belies the underlying...
