Conclusion: Ricoh CX1 digital camera 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 CX1.
Excerpt: The Ricoh 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).
Conclusion: This allows for a great amount of flexibility and experimentation and will help those less experienced to ensure the best possible outcome can constantly be produced. Within it’s price range, the Ricoh CX1 is a solid unit both literally and performance-wise that ought to be considered as a contender...
Summary: The Ricoh CX1 is smart, elegant, clever and quirky, but the high-dynamic-range mode is imperfect, and, while you might swoon over many of its cleverer gadgets in the shop, you may later find you never use them -- for example, the seven-shot focus bracketing.
Pros: Attractive design and interface; excellent 4 frames per second continuous shooting at full resolution; good high-dynamic-range mode -- in the right conditions.
Cons: High-dynamic-range shots can be easily spoilt; small and fiddly joystick; fairly expensive.
Excerpt: Noise Works The CX1’s CMOS sensor is matched with a new processor – called the Smooth Imaging Engine IV – to deliver a number of important capabilities, including noise reduction that’s performed on the 12-bit RAW image data (i.e.
Excerpt: Ricoh's CX1 digital camera feels great in your hand and it's capable of taking some cracking snaps. It's a compact camera with a 9.2-megapixel CMOS sensor and a 7.1x zoom lens, but it has a lack of manual settings that will make it appeal only to novice camera users.
Excerpt: The CX1 from Ricoh is a quality digital compact camera that has a particularly professional feel about it. And its revolutionary Dynamic Range mode delivers a little bit of magic that boosts the quality of photos ” but more of that later.
Excerpt: Ricoh's CX1 is an all-black, desirable looking compact that features a 9.2Mp CMOS sensor and a 7x optical zoom lens, equivalent to 28mm at its widest point and 200mm at full telephoto. Picking it up there's a sense of deja-vu; the look and feel is very similar to the now extinct R-series models.
Excerpt: Ricoh is better known for its photocopiers than its cameras but the CX1 might just change that. Like Ricoh's R10, it houses a 7.1x zoom lens inside a smart, compact metal body. Its 28-200mm zoom range snaps at the heels of the 10x and 12x lenses in this month's ultra zoom and rugged camera labs.
