Ricoh CX4 review - Image Quality

The impressive image quality is another feature
thankfully inherited by the CX4 from the CX3. Colour reproduction is
excellent, with a pleasingly natural colour palette displayed. The tones
may be a touch muted for some, but a quick bit of post-processing
easily remedies  this, otherwise Vivid colours can be selected using the
in-camera options.

As was the case with previous models in the CX
series, the tonal range of the CX4 is excellent. Both shadows and
highlights are well-handled and saved from being blown out, although a
criticism can be levelled at the dull midtones. Again, however, this can
be corrected in post-production. Sharpness is pleasing throughout the
frame, although a touch soft at the edges, and image noise is well
handled throughout the ISO range.
