However, with greater control over exposure, the camera should please the enthusiast photographer looking for a travel-zoom compact model.
Excerpt: The design and feature-set of the Ricoh CX6 are very similar to the previous CX5 model, so a lot of the comments that we made about that camera apply equally to this new model. It measures almost exactly the same at 103.9mm (W) x 58.9mm (H) x 28.5mm respectively and weighs the same at 180g.
Excerpt: Ricoh released their first CX camera back in February 2009 and have released regular updates since. The latest version, the CX6, was announced in November 2011 with an RRP of £259.99 and is available in black, silver and pink.
Pros: Minimum focus distance, 5 fps high-speed shooting, Good build quality, Quick focusing speed, Good colour reproduction, Good noise performance up to ISO1600
Cons: Purple fringing visible on occasion, No grip on front of camera as found on CX5, Noise when using zoom during video recording
Conclusion: Die Ricoh CX6 polarisiert. Der schnelle Autofokus hilft ungemein bei Schnappschüssen. Die manuellen Möglichkeiten, die durchdachte Bedienung und das hervorragende Display erleichtern nicht nur Foto-Profis die Aufnahme.
Pros: Sehr schneller Autofokus, Manuelle Modi, Brillantes Display
Cons: Detailtreue, Auflösung, Menü-Steuerung über Vier-Wege-Wippe
