Ricoh CX5 Review

 

The Ricoh CX5 is a new 10 megapixel point-and-shoot compact camera featuring a 10.7x, 28-300mm zoom lens. Successor to the 6-month old CX4 model, the Ricoh CX5 now offers faster autofocus speed due to a new hybrid AF system, recording of images with...

Improved auto-focus speed and slightly lower price aside, there's very little reason to choose the CX5 over the 6-month-old CX4. More seriously, Ricoh's travel-zoom camera is now starting to really lag behind the better-featured competition. The 0.2...

Ricoh CX5

 

How is it possible to take a compact digital camera that for most people is already perfect and improve upon its stellar features? It seemed as if this line had reached its pinnacle with the CX4, but in true Ricoh style, they weren't about to let good...

Super-fast; HDMI output; Eye-Fi compatible

Lab Test: Ricoh CX5 Digital Camera Review

 

Ricoh CX5  brings impressive image quality and performance, but falters with video implementation

Slim, stylish good looks ; Very good image quality ; Packed with great features

Plain and clunky looks ; Lacks manual controls ; Poor video quality and implementation

The Ricoh CX5 is an interesting, even quirky, compact camera that offers very good image quality, a very fast hybrid auto focus system, and generally impressive performance to point and shoot photographers. Its exact audience remains an enigma to us...

Ricoh CX5 camera review: A large compact camera with a 10.7x zoom lens and plenty of useful features

10.7x optical zoom, strong build quality, excellent macro capability, fun creative modes, supports EyeFi SD cards

Tracking autofocus was a little too jumpy, auto white balance wasn't always accurate, noticeable noise above ISO 400

The Ricoh CX5 is a little bigger than a typical compact camera, but it packs a versatile 10.7x zoom lens that's also great for macros. We love the CX5's build quality and controls, and its 3in screen is super-sharp and bright. It can take clear and...

Ricoh CX5 review

 

Small camera, big zoom – but what does the Ricoh offer that rivals don't? A speedy new autofocus, that's what

A solid, dependable and versatile superzoom compact, but doesn't do enough to outshine big name rivals

Ricoh CX5 review

 

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

Good price ; Sleek looks ; 10x zoom

Lack of RAW shooting ; Fiddly joystick ; Difficult to navigate menu

The latest version of Ricoh's CX compact cameras was released just a few months after its predecessor, the CX4, which in turn was only released a few months after the CX3. With a new version seemingly appearing with increasing regularity, is it worth...

Ricoh CX5 review

 

Ricoh cameras are somewhat divisive. They are heavier than most of their peers, but also very solidly constructed. If you want dainty, then a Casio or a Canon Ixus is likely to appeal more than a Ricoh; if you want speed and responsive, however, the...

The Ricoh CX5 is better built than some of its rivals, and we can’t argue with the responsive focus and zoom. However, this camera is outclassed by both the Nikon Coolpix S9100 and the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ20 and can’t handle low-light situations...

Ricoh CX5

 

The Ricoh CX5 is a well-built camera with a few design and implementation flaws that might dissuade newcomers to the brand from picking up an otherwise good device.

Quick, effective AF ; Excellent macro performance ; Eye-Fi compatibility ; Now has HDMI-out

No RAW ; No manual controls ; ISO performance over 200 needs work ; Design flaws mean the camera slips out of hand easily

Ricoh is most definitely a niche camera brand, and it appeals to a particular sub-section of photographers. Class-leading features like quick autofocus and a bright screen don't always make up for the lack of other essential options like RAW capture...

Having been refined, the CX5 is, of course, the strongest CX model yet.But only minor refinements over the last few versions have resulted in a camera that may just be losing some ground on the competition, particularly in regards to image quality at...
