A couple of weeks ago we blogged on how Ricoh had snapped up the Best Consumer Compact and Innovation Award for their Ricoh CX4 and GD4 range. What better way to celebrate this win, than by giving away ONE award-winning Ricoh CX4?!
Thank you to Ricoh Australia for being generous enough to provide us with a Ricoh CX4 to give to one of our valued readers.
Ricoh CX4 Review
I’ve played with the giveaway Ricoh CX4 unit and I’m honestly reluctant to part with it because it’s such a pleasure to use. I am especially appreciative of its light weight (205 grams) which compared to my Canon 5D Mark II, is like carrying a feather around.
Other features that I liked about the Ricoh CX4 were:
- Fast start up time
- High resolution LCD screen (3 inch 920,000 dots)
- 10.7x optical zoom
- Inbuilt stabiliser (amazing results)
- Light weight
As an avid hobby photographer, there are some improvements that I would personally make to improve the Ricoh CX4 further:
- Manual controls
- GPS tagging
- Improved grip (was slightly slippery to hold)
- RAW function
All-in-all the Ricoh CX4 is excellent value for money, especially if you’re looking for a camera that’s suited for traveling and quick snapshots.
With a recommended retail price (Australia) of $499, the Ricoh CX4 it’s easy to see why it has been praised as one of the best.
