The camera’s back-illuminated CMOS sensor (the same was used in Ricoh Gr Digital III announced in August) ensures excellent image quality when shooting low-light scenes. It also enables a sophisticated noise reduction function.
At the heart of the camera lies the Smooth Imaging Engine IV image processing engine. It features the pixel output interpolation algorithm that reduces whiteout in high-contrast situations, thus ensuring that images look naturally.
The CX3 is an easy-to-use digital camera offering its Auto Picture mode for fully automatic settings adjustment. It identifies the scene being photographed from portrait, sports, night portrait, landscape, nightscape, macro mode, etc, and switch to the necessary one. There are also 13 scene modes in the camera from which you can choose manually.
In the camera’s Dynamic range double shot mode it is possible to record images with an almost naked-eye impression. It also has an array of settings to control the dynamic range expansion effect. For instance, you can choose the tone range to be given priority using the following options: highlights, shadows, and off.
The CX3 features fast performance and can shoot 10-megapixel images at a speed of 5 fps. there’s also an ultra-high-speed continuous shooting for recording of 120 images at 60 or even 120 frames/sec.
The camera has extended dynamic range capture and better low-light performance than most small-sensor digicams provide. But it doesn’t offer much control over your images.
This is a fast, easy-to-use compact camera that delivers excellent image quality. Being a great pocket camera it still lacks manual controls.
The camera delivers great color reproduction and improved noise handling. It performs fast and its back-lit CMOS-shift image stabilization helps with zoom and low light. But its flash tends to overexpose. And its price is against it.
