Ricoh CX1 Samples

First published on: Monday, 30 March 2009

Last update (Apr 15, 2009): Full-sized Ricoh CX1 JPEG samples at AlphaMountWorld.

This page is a collection of photo samples taken with the Ricoh CX1 digital point and shoot camera, plus related image galleries, user pictures and other examples that I’ve come across in forums, online communities, blogs and related websites.

This should help in determining if the image quality of the CX-1 meets your expectations.

Bear in mind that the majority of these photos are re-sized, and may have gone through post-processing, retouching or other edits. I just thought that it would be interesting to see, at a glance, what Ricoh CX1 owners and users are shooting with their camera.

Full-sized images, where available, will assist with judging the image quality.

Steve really went out of his way to provide a nice variety of snaps from the camera.

There are also two sample video clips (one indoors, one outdoors) at the bottom of the page.

Enjoy viewing 4 pages of full-sized CX1 images to help make up your mind on whether to purchase the camera.

I found Page 3 especially helpful. There are 5 images of the same scene with different DR (Dynamic Range) settings: Standard (no DR), Very Weak, Weak, Medium, Strong.

He has posted comments on the images here and here.

The main points are, the first set of photos were taken with the Image setting on the CX1 on “Hard” which boosts saturation, color, contrast, sharpness and overall “punch”. The second set were shot with the Image setting on “Normal”.

Here’s a blog post with an excellent compilation of CX1 sample photos.

You get to view images with the Dynamic Range setting a various values, and also high ISO photos taken with the CX 1 and compared against the Fuji Finepix F200 EXR and Ricoh G10.

I must say that the high ISO images from the CX1 are much, much better compared to that from the Ricoh R10.
