-10.7x optical zoom lens (28-300mm)
-Optical image stabilization
-3″ LCD screen
-720p HD video recording

CNET UK ends up giving the Ricoh CX4 an overall score of 3.5 stars out of 5 possible. On the positive side we find aspects such as an useful zoom range, solid build, good value for your money and the LCD screen is great. There are a few negative sides that keeps the camera from getting a top score like noisy zoom operation, no zoom in movie mode, little or no hand grip and the reviewer does not like the way the camera looks. The CX4 is a pretty good camera, but has some quirks.
