  • Conclusion: As with its predecessors, the Ricoh CX5 is basically a high-end point and shoot camera that will appeal to those looking for high quality images from a pocket and budget-friendly camera. Particularly impressive are its sleek looks and the 10x zoom range.

Ricoh CX5 review

What Digital Camera

  • Summary: The Ricoh CX5 is a worthy addition to the CX series, and remains strong in the core areas in which is the CX series is known to excel. However, it suffers from the same failings as previous models have, and still doesn't feature Raw capture or full manual shooting controls. Overall, once again the CX series is just a few small tweaks away from being a great advanced compact.

Ricoh CX5 review

  • Summary: 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 ISO 400 and higher.

  • Excerpt: 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 upgrading to the Ricoh CX5 or sticking it out until the next version?

  • Summary: A company perhaps better known for photocopiers and large printers but they have produced digital camera s for a while. However this is the first of their units to have come my way, but all decent recent units have similar features.

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

Good Gear Guide.au
13 June 2011
  • Summary: 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 vibrant photos for the most part, but its picture quality does suffer from some noise issues. Nevertheless, we still think it's a great camera.
  • Pros: 10.7x optical zoom, strong build quality, excellent macro capability, fun creative modes, supports EyeFi SD cards
  • Cons: Tracking autofocus was a little too jumpy, auto white balance wasn't always accurate, noticeable noise above ISO 400

  • Summary: A minor upgrade to the CX4 model with faster autofocusing, three new scene pre-sets and two new colour options.Aside from cosmetic modifications, nothing much has changed in Ricoh's CX series of slimline digicams since the CX3 was released early last year. The sensor is the same 10-megapizel back-illuminated CMOS chip and the camera has the same retracting 10.7x optical zoom lens. But under the hood, there's a new, faster 'hybrid' AF system plus three new scene modes. .
  • Pros: You're looking for an affordable long-zoom digicam that can be slipped into a pocket., You want fast autofocusing and high-speed continuous recording options., You could benefit from the new super-resolution technology and scene presets. Don't buy this camera if :, You want P, A, S and M shooting modes plus full control over aperture and shutter speed settings., You want to capture raw files., You require an optical viewfinder., You want an easy-to-read menu system.

  • Excerpt: The design and feature-set of the Ricoh CX5 are virtually identical to the previous CX4 model, so a lot of comments that we made about that camera will be repeated here. It measures exactly the same at 101.5mm (W) x 58.6mm (H) x 29.4mm respectively and weighs slightly less at 176g. The CX5 is available in either silver, pink or a more serious black - Ricoh provided the latter for our review.
