And scoops the winning prize of a Ricoh CX3 with u2018Pets Modeu2019.

We asked readers of What Digital Camera and visitors of to upload ‘adorable, creative, funny or loveable pictures of their pets’ – and you didn’t disappoint. The image of Kelly90’s black Pug, entitled ‘Google Eyed Pug’ won top marks in this closely contested competition. View gallery here.  

Nigel Atherton, Editor of What Digital Camera said ” This was a surprisingly hard competition to judge – usually the images capture something that makes them stand out from the rest – but there are so many cute pets out there, that I could have easily chosen all of them to win. In the end, it came down to the score sheet amongst the team and this doe-eyed little fella just got the overall ‘ahh factor’ “.

More details about the Ricoh CX3 below….

Get snapping and take an adorable, creative, funny or loveable picture of your pet – then upload it to our gallery for your chance to win this smart little compact from Ricoh – boasting 10MP and 10 x Zoom.

Ricoh’s CX3 boasts HD Video Capture and offers greater image quality in low light scenes with a back-illuminated CMOS sensor. The “scene auto mode” will switch to the optimum shooting settings – get the shot you want with high-speed continuous shooting functions capable of high image quality. Dynamic range double shot mode makes it possible to record images with an almost naked-eye impression, and new detailed settings have been added to control the dynamic range expansion effect. As well as a new noise reduction function, the new “pets mode” turns off the flash, AF auxiliary light, and operation sounds to avoid startling a pet. This mode also gives priority in focusing for a cat’s face when one is detected. The 13 scene modes include “miniaturize mode” making it possible to shoot actual scenes but record images that recreate the impression given when photographing miniatures, and “high-contrast B&W mode” makes it possible to record images with a grainy feel such as that created by using ultra-high-sensitivity film in a film camera or by push processing film at the development stage.  

Sensor:   10MP 1 / 2.3in backlit CMOS Sensor
Lens:      10.7 x optical zoom; 28-300mm
LCD:       3in 920k-dot VGA LCD Screen
