Ricoh CX1 review

I'm a Nikon DSLR user but am not impressed by their Coolpix range of cameras so
when in the market for a 'point and shoot' camera I had a good look around the
whole market.
The CX1 had received excellent reviews (here in UK) and I was attracted by the
styling and that amazing screen!
RAW shooting didn't interest me with a P&S so that was not a barrier.

It's a personal, subjective thing , sure, but I just love the whole interface and the
images produced are first rate - for the price I think that the spec and quality are
first class.

I've been so impressed by this camera that I've become a big Ricoh fan and decided
(eventually!) to also buy the GRDIII which I am similarly delighted with.

In fact I now carry the above two cameras around far more frequently than the
DSLR rig!

Problems:

Software not Mac compatible but that's not a problem as I wouldn't use it anyway!

Nothing else, it's performed exactly as I thought when I bought it.
