Faster AF and zoom assist monitor added

Ricoh has announced the launch of the new Ricoh CX6. The model is the latest in the long line of CX models and replaces the Ricoh CX5.

The model features much the same specification as the CX5, including a 10.7x optical zoom with 28-300mm focal range, with Ricoh claiming the CX6 boasts even faster AF times than its predecessor.

The CX6 features a new AF system which enhances both the software and hardware of the hybrid system introduced on the CX5 and will now, according to Ricoh, offer AF focusing times as fast as 0.1 seconds. Other improvements include an LCD monitor which is approximately 1.7 times brighter than its predecessor, as well as a new zoom assist monitor function for improved accuracy in telephoto shooting.

The Ricoh CX6 is due on shelves early in December with an SRP of £259.99, and will be available in Black, Silver and Pink. For more information, visit the Ricoh website.
