Ricoh cx4

The Ricoh CX4 is basically a high-end point and shoot camera, and for both ordinary everyday shooting and fun photography, it performs well. Travel photographers on a budget looking for a neat package that will fit in a pocket will be impressed by its sleek looks and large zoom range, but serious photographers could be left disappointed by a lack of manual control.

It's worth considering however that the RRP for the CX4 is around £100 less than the premium compacts (such as the Canon S95) that it so closely resembles, so it is perhaps unfair to expect it to deliver the same results.
