Ricoh CX3 review


Price as reviewed:

Nine months is a meagre gap between the release of the Ricoh CX2 and the latest in the series, the CX3. I found myself wondering just how much could have been achieved in this time.

One of the main downsides of the CX2 was the high level of noise, but Ricoh claims it has addressed this issue in the CX3 with the inclusion of a back-illuminated CMOS sensor.

The company has also added a selectable noise-reduction function, HD video, scene auto mode, ‘pets’ shooting mode and face-priority AF.
