Ricoh CX3

CNET
29 April 2010
  • Summary: The Ricoh CX3 is a very different sort of superzoom. It's aimed at keen and knowledgeable users, and packed with tools that aren't just aimed at grabbing headlines. But the gap between what the camera can do and what the sensor can do is slightly too large
  • Pros: Good zoom range; 10mm macro mode; excellent LCD display; high-end features.
  • Cons: Weak 720p movie mode; image quality is limited by the sensor; utilitarian styling.

Ricoh CX3 Review

What Digital Camera
31 March 2010
  • Summary: Currently priced around the £300 mark, the Ricoh CX3 finds itself in the company of some respectable advanced shooters, but it’s worth bearing in mind the fact that the CX3 is lacking both Raw capture and full manual shooting control.
  • Pros: LCD screen, Design, HD video addition
  • Cons: No Raw capture, lack of manual control

Ricoh CX3 review

Amateur Photographer
3 April 2014
  • Summary: There is a lot to like about the CX3, such as its classic design, intelligent focusing and 10.7x optical zoom. Yet despite the impressive automatic exposure modes, I was frustrated by the lack of manual exposure controls.

[REVIEW—RICOH CX3 compact camera]

DPexpert
7 July 2011
  • Summary: The camera comes with a comprehensive, well written user manual and we strongly recommend that it be read carefully. There are a lot of useful features here that you are not going to stumble across by accident or find intuitively.
  • Pros: At modest lens focal length settings and at ISO speeds of 200 or less the image quality is outstanding. Exposure and white balance are impressive. Lens sharpness and image resolution are generally good. We like the consistency of results, particularly with judicial use of the manual over-rides.
  • Cons: We took the CX3 out to a street festival on a cloudy-bright afternoon and could see little or nothing on the LCD. The time must come when camera makers admit that an optical viewfinder is essential.

A 10-megapixel Ricoh compact camera with a 10.7x zoom lens

Good Gear Guide.au
26 October 2010
  • Summary: Ricoh's CX3 isn't much of an upgrade over the CX2 but it does offer HD video recording, which makes it a useful hybrid for people wishing to shoot stills and video with the same camera. Its pictures are a little noisy and it can struggle in bright light, but overall its image quality is very good.
  • Pros: Well built, very good picture quality, excellent manual focus, useful and fun filters
  • Cons: No HDMI, noticeable noise in photos at high ISO speeds, can be difficult to use in bright sunlight

  • Excerpt: The design of the Ricoh CX3 is virtually identical to the previous CX2 model, so a lot of comments that we made about that camera will be repeated here. It weighs and measures exactly the same at 185g and 101.5mm (W) x 58.3mm (H) x 29.4mm respectively.

7 June 2010
  • Excerpt: No other compact camera comes close to matching the CX3 for continuous performance. It set off at a startling 4.8fps in our tests, slowing to 3.3fps after 25 shots as our SDHC card struggled to keep up.

  • Conclusion: The Ricoh CX3 is a likeable point-and-shoot pocket camera, which is also a great all-round performer. It'll be good as a DSLR backup or as a primary camera
