Ricoh CX6 Compact Digital Camera Announced

Pretty nice looking P&S...

The new Ricoh CX6 camera was designed to be carried around everywhere to capture all of those moments, or at least thatís what Ricoh writes in their announcement for the new CX6. The Ricoh CX6 does weight only 201 grams with its battery and a SD card installed, as for raw dimensions the CX6 is very pocketable at 103.9 mm x 58.9 mm x 28.5 mm (23.1 mm at thinnest part).

However itís not the compact design that will probably have you to taking the Ricoh CX6 around everywhere with you, the cameras shooting capabilities and speed will be bigger factors in that decision. Ricoh states that their new CX6 can focus on an image in as little as 0.1 seconds, better than the hybrid AF driven Ricoh CX5 of yesteryear. The new CX6 features a new and faster hybrid AF system that allows it to beat out the CX5 in focusing speed.

Doesn't look bad. Not my sort of thing, but actually seeing Ricoh's own designs is part of why I'm not alarmed at them owning Pentax.
