R10, f4.8, 1/470, ISO 80, JPG 1:1

Today Ricoh has announced the new Ricoh CX1 camera. This is a new camera series that seems to follow the R10 and is aimed at consumers. It has some interesting specs with a 9.29MP 1/2.3″ CMOS sensor and a new high resolution LCD screen offering 920,000 pixels at VGA resolution (!!), 4 fps continuous shooting and in-camera HDR.
I was disapointed to see that there are no manual modes or RAW though. It looks very interesting though and will be worth a look. Need to ask Ricoh if I can get a review model.
I did not have time to take pictures but looking through Rui's photos on Flickr and with the CX1 looking like a R10 successor I ´went along and took a few abstract pictures with the R10. This is the one I like best because it's simple, although it is not really as good as Rui's work.


  1. It looks like a face two eyes , nose and mouth. :-)

  2. You are right, did not see it that way before but now that you mention it. :)
