Ricoh CX1 compact camera – SHINY VIDEO REVIEW

Cameras, Video Reviews

I’ve always quite fancied the looks of the Ricoh cameras but it was the Queen of the Compacts, Zara from Shiny Shiny, who got to take a look at the £299 Ricoh CX1 and I think she quite liked it.

Yes, it may only be blessed with a 9.2-megapixel sensor but a CMOS beats a CCD hands down in the point and press department. You also get a decent optical zoom range of a wide angle 28mm to an up close 200mm. The 4fps rapid fire will certainly come in handy and the 1cm macro is a bonus too but I’d like to see some more manual control if you’re forking out 300 smackers for the privilege. Know what I mean?
