My moment #2 : Moments

It's not just the dramatic backgrounds that move me. 
There are plenty of moments of inspiration meant only for me
hidden in everyday life as well.

The CX5 comes equipped with Ricoh's unique new hybrid AF system, which combines an AF sensor for continuously measuring the distance between the camera and subject together with Contrast AF. This hybrid AF system allows the camera to set the focus in as little as 0.2 sec., not only for 28-mm wide-angle shooting but also for 300-mm telephoto. Ensures that you capture the image you were waiting for over the entire zoom range so that you never miss another good shot again.

Capture moving subjects clearly with subject tracking AF.

The camera focusing system automatically tracks moving subjects, ensuring that photographs are in focus and correctly exposed whenever you choose to press the shutter-release button. This feature is ideal for shots of active children and pets, as well as for photographs of flowers and other subjects that demand careful composition.

Pre-AF

The camera detects the optimum focus position by shifting the focus to follow subject movement even when the shutter release button is not half-pressed. Since the AF operates to match subject movement, it is possible to shoot quickly when the shutter release button is pressed.

Person? Landscape? Close-up?
The CX5 will decide with the scene auto mode (S-AUTO).

By just pointing the camera, "scene auto mode" will switch to the optimum shooting settings. The camera identifies the type of scene being photographed (portrait, sports, night portrait, landscape, nightscape, macro mode, etc.) and automatically switches to the optimum shooting settings. As a result, you enjoy quick and easy photography fine tuned to the specific scene.

High-speed continuous shooting functions

Many discoveries await in a world unseen by the naked eye. With speeds from 5 frames/sec. to ultra-high-speed 120 frames/sec. using the high-speed continuous shooting functions of the CX5, you will catch the moment.

Beautiful continuous shooting
High-speed continuous shooting of approx. 5 frames/sec. at maximum pixels.

Still images at maximum pixels (10M) can now be shot continuously at high-speed of about 5 frames/sec. So you can capture that decisive moment in a high-definition image.

  • *Continuous shooting speed will vary depending on shooting conditions, card type, card condition, etc.

The camera records 15 photos taken in about 3 sec.
before the shutter-button is released or 26 photos taken in about 0.9 sec.

The CX5 has the M-continuous plus shooting function, which saves consecutive images shot before the finger is removed from the shutter release button. To fit the scene being photographed, you can select from two modes: M-Continuous Plus (10M) for 15 images taken in about three seconds and M-Continuous Plus (2M) for 26 images taken in about 0.9 seconds. Shooting continuously, you are ready when the decisive moment finally arrives.

  • *M-Continuous Plus (10M) image size is fixed at 4:3N (10M).
  • *M-Continuous Plus (2M) image size is fixed at 1728x1296 (2M).
  • *The continuously shot still images are recorded together as a single MP file (a file format with multiple still images in a single file). With MP file images recorded by the CX5, a selected frame can be extracted and saved as an individual JPEG image within the camera.

Control photo "feel" with diverse aspect ratios.
Diverse aspect ratios

The CX5 can record square photos with the 1:1 aspect ratio used in medium format cameras or a 16:9 aspect ratio suitable for viewing on wide-screen TVs. Give free reign to your creativity with photos that are a little out of the usual.

Choose the best shot after shooting
with four different types of bracketing functions.

Bracketing functions shoot multiple images while changing the shooting settings. Spared from having to make subtle setting adjustments, from multiple images you just select the one best matching your creative intentions.

Auto bracketing

Automatically shoots three consecutive shots at three exposure levels (-0.5EV, ±0, +0.5EV) based on the set exposure level.

Color bracketing

Automatically records three images (color, black and white, and sepia) giving very different impressions. In addition to the regular color image, you can enjoy the play of light and shadow in a black and white image and the nostalgic feel of a sepia tone image.

White balance bracketing

Automatically records three images: a reddish image, a bluish image, and an image at the currently set white balance. This is convenient when it is difficult to judge the proper white balance.

Focus bracketing

The automatic continuous shooting of five images while changing the focus position by specified intervals. The focus position intervals can be specified as (Wide) or (Narrow).
