Ricoh CX2 Digital Camera Review

  • Conclusion: 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.

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

Digicam Review
9 December 2009
  • Summary: : The Ricoh CX2 improves on the CX1 with quicker 5fps shooting, an improved 10.7x optical zoom lens, new scene modes, new focus mode, and snap focus. With 5fps shooting at full resolution the camera can shoot quicker than most budget Digital SLRs! High speed shooting allows Ricoh to provide Dynamic Range mode - this uses the speed of the camera to take two shots of different exposures - combines the two and produces an image with greatly increased dynamic range.
  • Pros: Great image quality, Low noise for a compact camera, Dynamic range mode useful for static / landscape shots, High speed shoting - 5fps! better than some DSLRs, Great wide angle 10.7x optical zoom lens, CMOS-shift image stabilisation helps with zoom and low light, Excellent 3.0" screen - one of the best with very good resolution, Robust, compact metal body, Good battery life, Excellent macro mode, 1:1 Aspect ratio (Square format) available, Electronic level, Numerous c...
  • Cons: Expensive compared to predecessors (R10), Limited scene modes, Poor flash position

  • Excerpt: The design of the Ricoh CX2 is virtually identical to the previous CX1 model, so a lot of comments that we made about that camera will be repeated here. The CX2 is marginally heavier at 185g and thicker at 29.4 mm to accommodate the new 10.7 lens, but otherwise measures the same (101.5 mm (W) x 58.3 mm (H)) and looks almost identical.

  • Excerpt: Everything that’s good about the CX1 including the double-shot HDR mode and multi-point white balance but with a longer zoom and faster continuous shooting. Another Ricoh digital compact for the discerning shooter. Report by Paul Burrows. How do you follow what’s arguably the best-performing point-and-shoot digital compact camera on the market? With something better, of course.

Ricoh CX2 digital camera review

Pocket Lint
15 October 2009
  • Excerpt: 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 belies the underlying complexity; a small mode dial perched on the rear corner joins with a small on/off button and a combined zoom control and shutter button.
  • Pros: LCD, low ISO image quality, easy to use, features, build, auto level indication
  • Cons: No optical viewfinder, high ISO image noise, longer zoom creates camera shake issues

Ricoh CX2 review Review

CNET
13 October 2009
  • Summary: On the design and feature fronts, the Ricoh CX2 doesn't do too badly, but the lens just isn't up to the job. It might be alright in the centre, but the soft edges undermine all of this camera's clever features, with the result that the CX2 is much less desirable than it could otherwise be
  • Pros: Good zoom range, Solid build quality and design, 5-frames-per-second shooting at full resolution, Plenty of focus modes
  • Cons: Over-smoothed detail, Poor lens quality at the edges of the frame
