Ricoh has updated it CX camera range just six months after the launch of the Ricoh CX2, the new model is the Ricoh CX3 and it comes with a range of improvements over the previous model.
The Ricoh CX3 features a 10 megapixel back illuminated CMOS sensor, and it can now record HD video in 1280 by 720 pixels.
While image quality has been addressed, Ricoh’s commitment to bringing professional photos within reach of the amateur continues with the CX3. A new “scene auto mode” has been added which identifies the image subject and automatically selects the most appropriate scene mode. Whether taking photographs of panoramic landscapes, portraits of the family, action shots at the tennis or getting up close with wildlife, the CX3 takes the guess work and hassle out of mode selection.
It features a 3 inch LCD display, and a 10.7x optical zoom 28-300mm wide angle zoom lens. There are no details on US pricing as yet although it is expected to retails for around $450.
