Fortunately, the CX1 bucks the trend of the previous cameras from the manufacturer, as it's actually a bit stylish. Along with a fully stocked specification sheet that fills out the inside of the Ricoh CX1 Camera, the outside is just as stylish, staking its claim in aesthetics rather than words.

The metal exterior has a pleasant, slightly mottled texture that makes it easy to Ricoh CX1 Camera in one hand without the need for a wrist strap though one is provided in the box and it's available in your choice of colours, from silver, black or a colour aptly termed as "champagne rose". It's not as slim or as teensy as other compacts out there — at g and measuring 5.


However, it's this sturdiness that makes the CX1 feel like a proper compact camera to anyone who is accustomed to the bulk and weight of a digital SLR. Think of it as a companion piece to your SLR rig. Ultimate bragging rights or just plain egotism? Instead of just taking Ricoh CX1 Camera average reading from the whole scene, which inevitably gets the white balance wrong for the secondary light source, the CX1 breaks the image down into small areas and analyzes and sets the white balance for each one. In practice it produces a subtle but noticeable effect that is particularly useful for capturing more natural portraits when using flash. By default the Adjust button, or more accurately the Adjust four-way joystick, allows you to quickly adjust Ricoh CX1 Camera different settings that are commonly used.

Even better, the Adj. Ricoh CX1 Camera Adjust button also doubles up as the OK button to select options and it sets the Macro and Flash options by pressing left and right - there's another button underneath to access the Main menu system. Ricoh have also included a customisable Function Fn button, which can be optionally used to control one of 7 settings - AE Lock is a good choice.

Ricoh CX1 Camera The Fix Minimum Aperture function forces the camera to shoot at the smallest aperture available, which gives a greater depth of field in the resulting photograph. This helps to ensure level shots, both in landscape and portrait mode. You can view the horizontal indicator on the LCD monitor to ensure that shots are aligned horizontally. If you can't see the LCD screen in very bright sunlight, then the camera can also be set to make a sound to indicate a level horizon.


It doesn't sound like a big deal in theory, but in practice it really helps to make the horizons in all your wide-angle shots perfectly level. The Ricoh CX1 features an anti-shake system called Camera Shake Correction - turn it on in the Main menu and the Ricoh CX1 automatically compensates for camera shake, which is a slight blurring of Ricoh CX1 Camera image that typically occurs at Ricoh CX1 Camera shutter speeds. You don't notice that the camera is actually doing anything different when anti-shake is turned on, just that you can use slower shutter speeds than normal and still take sharp photos.

Ricoh CX1 Digital Camera Review

Ricoh seem to have realised the importance of this system, as it is turned on by default, and thankfully leaving the anti-shake system on didn't negatively affect the battery-life, with the camera managing over shots before the battery needed to be recharged comparable to the R The face recognition feature offered by the Ricoh CX1 is based on a pretty simple system that only recognises a maximum of 4 faces. Ricoh have also chosen to make it a specific scene mode, rather than a general setting that applies to whichever shooting mode is currently selected, which rather limits its usefulness. Face recognition does work if the subjects are looking directly at the camera, but the CX1 takes a while to lock onto the subject, and I think that the tried and trusted method of half-pressing the shutter button to focus and then recomposing the shot is Ricoh CX1 Camera quicker and more reliable method.

Memory Card Slot Battery Compartment The main menu system on the Ricoh CX1 is straight-forward to use and is accessed by pressing the Menu button on the rear of the camera. There are two main menus, Shooting and Setup. Quite a lot of the camera's main options, such as image size, sharpness, metering mode and continuous mode, are accessed here, so the Shooting menu has 17 options spread over 2 screens, and there are 26 options in the Setup menu over 3 screens. Despite increasing the number of on-screen choices from 6 to 10, the new sharper display ensures that the various options and icons are clear and legible. I'm curious as to why the scene mode has a separate option for face detection and when it wasn't selected, the camera didn't focus on the face.

Portrait mode has lightened the image slightly but Ricoh CX1 Camera looks warmer which is unusual.

I really like the image with flash as it hardly looks as it's been used but the catchlights and artificial flash on the wall give it away. In portrait mode, the face detection won't work automatically. Program mode looks warmer than with portrait mode which is different. In fact, there's a face detection mode for that option. Using flash has lightened the image nicely but doesn't seem like it's been used. I got a really nice effect with the macro mode. It has a close focusing of 1cm which can get close enough in for most of your needs and in the shot I got of a Daffodil stamen, it's blurred the foreground nicely to create an abstract effect while focusing on the centre and capturing the bugs inside the folds of petals. The Ricoh CX1 has produced a really nice landscape test shot with nice detail in the foreground and no fringing on the white bars.

Granted it was an overcast day but there's usually still some kind of fringing visible. The colour test chart is a mixed bag of results. Primary blue is boosted nicely and Ricoh CX1 Camera isn't far behind but the skin tone tile looks more pale than I usually expect.

Earth brown looks rich but this normally goes hand in hand with the forest green which has come out more faded than usual. Orange looks a little gaunt and I can hardly make out the pastel Ricoh CX1 Camera down the left side Ricoh CX1 Camera blue, orange and brown. I really like the landscape shot as there's decent detail with little fringing on the white bars or the trees. Ricoh CX1 Introduction.
