Ricoh CX3 Digital Camera Review

Rating: 8/10

Best Price: £204.99 here.

What it’s up against: The Canon PowerShot SX210 IS (£197) and Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ10 (£219) 

+ Lovely metal design
-      No manual controls
+ Nice crisp LCD screen
-      Canon at lower price with higher meghapixles.

First Impressions:

-         Ease of use: Nice uncluttered metal buttons with a simple, intuitive layout.

-        Picture quality: See pictures below and a sample video here. Both the colour and sharpness of the lens is good and 720p HD video recording is a nice addition as well.

-         Design: Lovely black aluminium metal case, with an expensive and retro look.
The camera is easy to use with all the buttons where you would expect them to be. The menu functions are a little sprawling but it doesn’t take long to familiarise yourself with it. Simple to point and shoot to create good quality images without spending forever setting up the camera.

What’s in the box:

-         CX3 Camera
-         CD ROM
-         User guide
-         Warranties
-         USB connector cable
-         AV Cable
-         Rechargeable battery and charger
-         Wrist strap

Tech Specs:

-         10 Megapixel
-         10.7 Optical zoom
-         HD 720p Video Recording
-         Full specs here.


The Ricoh CX3 has a good range of features at a reasonable price. A nice metal case and a crisp LCD screen make this a fine camera.
