Ricoh CX2 Review

 

The Ricoh CX2 is a new compact super-zoom camera, offering a 10.7x, 28-300mm zoom lens in a body less than 3cms thick. Successor to the 6-month old CX1 model, the Ricoh CX2 principally increases the focal range from 200mm to 300mm and the continuous...

The Ricoh CX2 adds a couple of real improvements and a few additional frills to an already proven design. CX1 owners may feel aggrieved given the aggressively short timescale between releases, but for the rest of us the CX2 demands and deserves our...

Ricoh CX2 Digital Camera Review

 

In saying that, the solid performance of the CX1 has certainly been continued and users can be assured that this line of compacts will perform well overall, especially given some initial practice and familiarisation time.

Ricoh CX2 [Digital Camera Review]

 

Ricoh has a unique way of snaring attention: like the delicate lilac hue of the CX2's top panel, neatly capping the two-tone grey body. Pick it up and you immediately know which is the camera's upper level, with power button, mode dial and zoom lever...

In some ways the CX2 is a surprising camera but by adding a few features (more exposure options — shutter and aperture priority) and RAW capture it could have been an absolute winner. As it is, I figure many of the CX2's attractions, like burst...

A small Ricoh digital camera with a big zoom

28-300mm zoom lens, useful dynamic range mode, high-contrast black-and-white filter, fast burst mode

Noise is present in images, not useful for low-light photography, some lens distortion

Despite some issues with noise, the Ricoh CX2 is an admirable compact camera. It has a huge 300mm lens, captures vibrant and sharp images, has useful scene modes, and is reasonably priced. Put it on your shopping list if you want a point-and-shoot...

Ricoh CX2 digital camera

 

The Ricoh CX2 is basically the same as the CX1, it looks stylish and is undoubtedly well made; once again we had the black liveried version to test, though silver and a two-tone version with a coloured top plate are available. A simple control layout...

LCD, low ISO image quality, easy to use, features, build, auto level indication

No optical viewfinder, high ISO image noise, longer zoom creates camera shake issues

The CX2 is, well, just the like the CX1 – only more so. A relatively minor update might furrow some brows as to why the CX1 needed replacing so soon. The longer focal lengths are (arguably) more useful, but the flip side is problems with camera shake...

With its breakneck performance, fantastic screen and big zoom, this is almost a superb camera, but lens sharpness lets it down.

Ricoh CX2 review

 

It's perfect for anyone with a penchant for travelling: the Ricoh CX2 will let you take wide-angle shots of famous landmarks, and can also snap a close-up of a bird perched atop a distant statue and capture fine details, for example.
