Ricoh adds new fast focusing CX5 digital camera to line

Fast focus and lots of zoom

| Cameras News | Posted: Jan 26, 2011 6:00 pm

I mentioned a new rugged digital camera from Panasonic earlier and Ricoh has also unveiled a new camera today. The only thing I know about Ricoh is their copier line so it's a bit odd to see a new digital camera to me from the company. The new cam is called the CX5 and it has some really cool features like high-speed focus. Being able to focus faster makes it easier to catch the image you want during fast action without blur.

The CX5 can focus in as little as 0.2 seconds, which is about half the time it took the previous CX4 camera to focus. The camera has a 28mm wide-angle lens that can zoom up to the equivalent of 300mm. That gives an optical zoom range of 10.7x. The camera also has a super zoom mode that will give it the equivalent of 600mm zoom. That mode is a 2x digital zoom that multiplies the optical zoom.

 

The camera has a litany of automatic modes and automatic scene settings. The rear LCD is a 3-inch unit with 920k dots making it very high resolution. The camera has HDMI output for viewing photos and HD 720p video on a big screen. The camera will come in black, silver, and pink with pricing unknown right now.
