The Ricoh CX6 looks like it is going to be great camera and these CX cameras have so many filters and fun things you can do in the menu. I just wonder if they will be doing anything 3D later on.

I looked at the Ricoh CX5 yesterday and it looked pretty nice. I just wish they had a better range of colors and I could completely turn off all the icons when taking shots. Even the focus points & f-stop. Maybe that’s only me though. One strange little quirk or thing with the camera is that for some reason the icons can’t be turned off if the memory is full. But it isn’t like you can take a shot then…

The Ricoh CX6 looks like it will be out soon. Maybe September or October if we are lucky. I just hope they fix the menu. That tiny little joystick is a bit tricky to use at times and you also have to trace out a little c shape to get to the lower settings down the bottom.

http://gr-digital.seesaa.net (Japanese Website) said the camera should be out in August but it might not be ready until September. Ricoh hasn’t said anything yet.

    I had a loot at that cam. It’s nice but to big and slow.

    Still nothing on the Ricoh CX6. Hopefully Canon will bring out something new on the 3rd of November.

    I was looking in Tsukumo and Yodobashi yesterday to replace the broken Sony DSC-T30 I have. Just when I thought I had found the perfect camera (the FinePix Z950EXR) I realized it didn’t have spot metering :cry: Almost perfect. The touch screen needed a few taps to select icons properly but this camera could do 1cm macro shots. The sign and all the websites I had looked at said 5cm though. Strange but a pleasant surprise.

    Still nothing yet. Maybe they have given up on this one…

    The new Sony DSC-TX55 was in the store but still no news on the CX6. It might not be out till October :neutral: … Most camera makers start advertising about 2 to 3 weeks before the release date on TV here.

    Nothing in the shops yet or commercials on TV for the Ricoh CX6 yet. Sony is going for it with their interlaced full high definition DSC-TX55 though. It looks pretty good as well. It would just be nice if it had sepia, something to change the color ballance and the good old 1cm macro. I think the TX55 only has a 5cm macro. 2011-09-09th Update: The macro mode doesn’t work properly but at times it can magnify things about a centimeter away from the lens.

    I hope the body of the Ricoh CX6 is a little smaller and it has a different lens cover. The one it has now is a little weak.
