Yesterday, Ricoh announced their all new CX5, an updated version to the CX4.  Behind the lens is a high resolution 10 megapixel sensor and a newly improved 28-300mm lens that speeds up autofocus times to as little as .2 seconds, half the time of its predecessor.

Ricoh is boasting a tech called super-resolution “which discerns outlines, details, and gradations in the image automatically and processes the images based on the optimal setting for each”.

A 10.7x optical zoom should insures close-ups from even afar and a variety of scene selectors – 14 to be exact – provide what is hopefully an optimal picture for each setting at hand. ┬áLastly, a 3-inch 920k LCD graces the back, where upon you’ll be able to view not only your pics, but 1280×720 video.

There is no word on price, but we’ll have a review unit hopefully by early next week.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
