Ricoh CX5 10 MP CMOS Digital Camera

The Ricoh CX5 digital camera features a wide-angle, high-magnification 10.7x optical zoom (28-300 mm) lens, which has a higher autofocus speed due to the use of Ricoh’s new hybrid AF system. With the new CX5, AF focusing times are decreased to as low as 0.2 sec. for both wide-angle 28 mm and telephoto 300 mm, up to half as short compared to the CX4, using Ricoh’s unique new hybrid AF system; this ensures that you reliably capture the image you were waiting for, and never miss another good shot again.

Using super-resolution technology, the CX5 also allows (1) recording of images with improved resolution using the “Super-resolution” setting and (2) telephoto shooting at up to 600mm equivalent with minimal degradation in image quality using “Super-resolution Zoom.”

Furthermore, in addition to the new Cooking, Fireworks, and Continuous Golf Swing scene modes, the CX5 has improved features that make shooting photographs even more fun through the use of super-resolution zoom during Zoom Macro mode shooting and other functions.
