Ricoh CX6 review


Price as reviewed:


Latest deal

Equipped with a 4.9-52.5mm (28-300mm equivalent) f/3.5-5.6 Ricoh zoom lens, 1cm macro mode and 10-million-pixel sensor, the Ricoh CX6 is at its core the same as previous versions all the way back to the CX3. Sadly, the 10-million-pixel sensor and the camera’s JPEG-only capture is beginning to look a little dated. However, useful improvements have been made to the CX6’s handling.

Previous models in the series are limited to automatic exposure, but the CX6 offers shutter priority for speeds from 8-1/2000sec, or aperture priority for one of two settings: ‘open’ or ‘minimum’. Combined with a host of sophisticated controls and shooting modes, this could make the CX6 the ideal photographer’s travel companion.

    I wonder if the zeiss 50mm f1.8 will be worth my hard enerad student money.I was thinking of putting the NEX 7 hand in hand with the zeiss 50mm f1.4 and focusing manually with a significantly smaller price tag.Maybe i’ll dish out for this if the quality is good enough, apart from bokeh im looking for razor sharp pictures wide open which shouldnt be too hard for a 1.5 factor zeiss!eventually i will get even more lenses like a macro and a tele which will prob be connected via adapter.

    My A33 is barely out of guarentee. Does this make it obsolete as far as new lens are concerned?
