With the new CX5 model, 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, never to miss another good shot again.
Using super-resolution technology, the CX5 also allows recording of images with improved resolution using the “Super-resolution” setting and telephoto shooting at up to 600 mm equivalent with minimal degradation in image quality using “Super-resolution Zoom.” The CX5 has a 3 inch LCD, that has a flourine coat to avoid soiling or scratches. The CX5 is an even more enhanced compact digital camera that was designed based on the concept of it being “a tool that you will find yourself wanting to use every day.”
This new model will be available in Black, Silver, and Pink.
