Ricoh announced the development and unveiling of the CX6, which is a new digital camera featuring a high magnification 10.7x (28-300 mm) optical wide-angle zoom lens that achieves even shorter autofocus (AF) through the introduction of a new AF system.
With the adoption of a new system enhancing both the hardware and software of the hybrid AF system introduced on the CX5, the new CX6 achieves AF focusing times as fast as 0.1 seconds.
The high-brightness LCD monitor is approximately 1.7 times brighter than the previous model for better visibility outdoors. The CX6 also adds a function for automatic adjustment of brightness based on the level of brightness of the subject, and this make it possible to minimise the loss of visibility that can occur due to changes in the shooting environment. For telephoto shooting, the new zoom assist monitor function displays a small image on the LCD monitor to allow you to check the framing of the shot. The compact camera will be available in 3 colours: black, silver and pink.
