Nine months on from its ‘noisy’ predecessor, the CX2, Ricoh’s CX3 turns its attention to noise reduction


There is a lot to like about the CX3, such as its classic design, intelligent focusing and 10.7x optical zoom.

Yet despite the impressive automatic exposure modes, I was frustrated by the lack of manual exposure controls.

That said, the improvements in handling noise make this a camera that performs as handsomely as it looks.
