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. Lastly, 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.
