From wide-angle to telephoto.
10.7× 28–300 mm optical zoom + SR 600 mm zoom
Ricoh's original retracting lens system made it possible to fit the high-magnification 10.7× optical wide-angle zoom lens in a thin 29.4 mm body that is both easy to carry and easy to use. This lens can handle a wide range of shooting situations, including shooting of expansive landscapes and powerful telephoto shots as well as wide-angle shooting of interior scenes with limited distance between camera and subject. The CX5 also comes equipped with a new high-resolution zoom. This zoom enables telephoto shooting at 600 mm equivalent with minimal degradation in image quality.

2880-mm ultra-telephoto digital zoom
and step zoom
The step zoom function enables you to fix the optical zoom magnification at eight steps (28 mm, 35 mm, 50 mm, 85 mm, 105 mm, 135 mm, 200 mm, and 300 mm equivalent). For a zoom range beyond the 10.7× optical zoom (300 mm), the subject can be magnified even more with digital zoom as well as the 600-mm ultra-telephoto zoom. Photographs can be taken with ultra-telephoto zoom at up to 2880 mm at maximum.
Corrects for even slight hand-motion blur.
Image sensor shift image stabilizer
The CX5's image-sensor-shift image stabilization reduces blur by an equivalent of about 3.7 shutter-speed stops on average. This ensures crisp, sharp results in close-ups, telephoto shots, and other situations in which blur is likely to occur.

Leave the camera in charge for perfect focus thanks to its
face-priority multi-AF system.
Natural colors for both subject and background.
Multi-pattern auto white balance
It can be difficult to define a white balance for scenes mixing different light sources, such as when shooting indoors with flash or when shooting scenes with both sunlight and shadow. Multi-pattern auto white balance sets the white balance to fit the light source of each segregated area, thereby surpassing the past method (an average setting for the entire image) to reproduce color tones closer to those seen by the eye.
