Ricoh CX4 Review

 

The Ricoh CX4 is a new 10 megapixel point-and-shoot compact camera featuring a 10.7x, 28-300mm zoom lens. Successor to the 6-month old CX3 model, the Ricoh CX4 now includes a range of new creative filters, a newly developed subject-tracking AF system,...

With only a few new features on offer the CX4 offers very little reason to upgrade from the 6-month-old CX3, and the removal of the useful handgrip actually makes it less easy to use than its predecessor. With rival models offering bigger zooms and...

Ricoh CX4 Digital Camera Test & Review – Hands On

 

A look at the new digital camera from Ricoh, what are it's best features and what does it not do so well.

From testing the camera I would have to say the vibrancy of the pictures and the zoom are two of the most impressive features it has. The camera is feature packed and hardly makes a sound. Ricoh seem to understand that photography is an art form, and...

Ricoh CX4 Review

 

Seemingly a run-of-the-mill digicam, the CX4 has a few tricks up its digital sleeve.

Quality: OK but not brilliant. Why would buy the CX4: you want a high quality digicam with some nice toys you can play with… like cross processing etc. Why you wouldn't: ID texts on the rear controls are near-illegible in low light; you need more...

Ricoh's CX4 point-and-shoot digital camera is bigger than most compact cameras on the market, but it rests comfortably in your hands and it's equipped...

Excellent LCD screen, excellent focusing performance, speedy, takes clear and vibrant images, big zoom lens, excellent menu system

No manual mode, noisy images, some chromatic aberration

Ricoh's CX4 compact digital camera is almost identical to the CX3, but it offers a new subject-tracking focus mode and a dedicated creative mode on its dial. It's a fun camera to use and the end results are almost always pleasing. However, it doesn't...

Ricoh CX4

 

Long before Panasonic ever incorporated a larger than standard-at-the-time 3x optical zoom into one of its pocket compacts, Ricoh was doing it to critical plaudits but less mainstream fanfare. The CX4, a fast off the blocks upgrade to the CX3,...

Solid feel construction, broad 28-300mm equivalent focal range (10.7x optical zoom), fairly priced, extremely high resolution LCD for this class of camera

Drab design, the CX4's zoom mechanics are noisy in operation and the facility is disabled in video mode, lack of decent handgrip

The lens reach and monitor resolution may mark the CX4 out as a more serious proposition for the photo enthusiast than your average snapshot camera, but in fact this Ricoh is a pretty much auto everything point and shoot model none the less.

Ricoh CX4 review

 

Is the CX4 an expensive point and shoot, or does it offer something extra?

Sleek design ; 10x optical zoom ; Fun filters

Lack of manual controls

The Ricoh CX4 was released only a few months after its predecessor, the CX3. With many serious competitors in the high-end compact market, have Ricoh updated the camera enough to warrant shelling out more money for the latest version?

A minor update over the CX3, but the lower price makes this a serious contender for the compact ultra-zoom crown.
