Ricoh CX4 - Front on

The Ricoh CX4 is Ricoh’s latest compact camera in a long line of compact cameras, which started with the Ricoh CX1 (9mp CMOS sensor, 7.1x optical zoom lens), Ricoh CX2 (10.7x optical zoom lens), Ricoh CX3 (10mp update), and now the Ricoh CX4, which adds improved image stabilisation, new creative modes, a new night shot mode, subject tracking AF, and improved battery life. The Ricoh CX4 is available from around £226

The Ricoh CX1 introduced a high speed 9mp CMOS sensor to Ricoh’s line of cameras, which was itself, and update to the Ricoh R10 (I wont bore you with the details, but as you can probably guess by now, dates all the way back to the Ricoh Caplio R1v), and offered 4fps shooting as well as high speed video recording. The Ricoh CX2 updated to 5fps shooting, and a 10.7x optical zoom lens covering a useful 28-300mm range in 35mm terms. The Ricoh CX3 added HD video recording, as well as a 10 megapixel sensor and numerous options such as noise control. The Ricoh CX4 now adds …

  • Improved/ Enhanced image stabilisation system
  • Subject tracking AF
  • three new shooting scene modes: Soft Focus / Cross Process / Toy Camera
  • Night Landscape Multi-shot
  • JPEG (Exif ver.2.3)

ePhotoZine has reviewed the new Ricoh CX4, an update to the CX3 (read our review here) – it features improved battery life (330 vs 310), redesigned grip at the front, and redesigned buttons at the back (same position, just slightly larger), ISO100 – 3200 (compared to ISO80 – 3200 on the CX3), a new creative shooting mode (moves some of the scene modes to the C dial position, and adds Soft Focus, Cross Process, Toy Camera), Night Landscape Multi-shot, subject tracking AF, and is available in black, “champagne silver” (shown above) and “purple pink”.

“You seem to get a lot for your money. The new backlit CMOS 10mp sensor has an ISO100-3200 range and the Ricoh branded lens is an impressive and very useful 28-300mm (35mm equiv) or 10.7x zoom. The manufacturers claim that you can push the lens, via its digital zoom function, to a mighty 1710mm equivalent without loss of image quality while its minimum focusing distance is 1cm for the macro enthusiasts.”

“The CX4 boasts a back-illuminated CMOS image sensor combined with advanced Smooth Imaging Engine IV image processing. Poorly-lit indoor or night scenes are rendered in pure, unblemished quality, as of course are brightly-lit subjects. An output pixel interpolation algorithm residing in dedicated logic circuits in the imaging engine reduces loss of detail in highlights to faithfully recreate high-contrast scenes exactly as they appear to the naked eye.”
