Ricoh CX4 review – Value and Verdict

Ricoh CX4 review - Value

The CX4's street price is currently around £50 more than its
predecessor, the CX3. You'll still be getting a good camera, but apart
from the extra creative shooting modes and new image stabilisation,
you're not getting a whole lot of new features for your money.


Ricoh CX4 review - Verdict

There's no escaping the fact that the CX4 is, on its own, a very good camera. It's worth noting though that Ricoh has not fixed the faults of the CX3 and also not added much that's new to the model. As an advanced compact the CX4 should really feature Raw capture or full manual control, or ideally both, as opposed to neither. Having said that, the CX4 does produce good results, it's well designed and has a lovely LCD screen. For that reason it's still worthy of a recommendation. Good, just not as great as it could be.
