  • Conclusion: With a full price of £250 in the UK or $219 in the US, the Ricoh CX5 isn't significantly cheaper than premium compacts such as the . But despite its sleek black appearance suggesting otherwise, the Ricoh isn't equipped with advanced features such as raw shooting.
  • Pros: Good price, Sleek looks, 10x zoom
  • Cons: Lack of RAW shooting, Fiddly joystick, Difficult to navigate menu

  • Summary: After this test we are able to offer you our analysis’s conclusion. The CX5 is able to offer good quality pictures. The display is beautiful and impressive even from the very first use. Its real problem is the competition which offers a lot of features that the CX5 is not able to provide.

Ricoh CX5 Review

What Digital Camera
2 March 2011
  • 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.
  • Pros: Good image quality, excellent LCD screen, retro design
  • Cons: Lack of manual mode, no Raw capture, high price tag relative to competing advanced compacts

  • 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.

Ricoh CX5 Digital Camera

GadgetSpeak
6 July 2011
  • Excerpt: A company perhaps better known for photocopiers and large printers but they have produced digitalcameras 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.
  • 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: Ricoh might not be the la-di-da big name in the camera world, but it has been turning out lovely compact snappers for years – and this new superzoom is no exception. The fifth model in the CX series, the CX5 (see what they did there?

[REVIEW—RICOH CX5 compact camera]

DPexpert
3 March 2011
  • Summary: Ricoh have never been in the pixel race and they have stuck with 10 megapixels in their compacts. The pixel density is still greater than the best – the Panasonic LX5 and Canon G12, which have larger sensors – but is much better than run-of-the-mill compacts.
  • Pros: Automatic white balance is outstanding. We took photos in a weird mix of florescent, daylight and tungsten and had good results every time. The super resolution function works well. Images up to ISO400 are free of annoying digital noise. The hybrid focus system – contrast detect plus infra-red di...
  • Cons: The lens at its 300mm extension is poor. With the digital zoom boost it is ridiculous. Why do they do it? We didn’t get one acceptable photo at the zoom limit.
