Here are some general test shots to help evaluate the camera's overall image quality, including dynamic range, colour rendition and the zoom range of the lens. Some pictures may be clicked to download the full size original image.

----
/94/6736c5/a9dd/12801-cx3wide.jpg

The wide-angle end is equivalent to 28mm, but this shot is over-exposed.

----
/94/32afc3/e7fa/12801-cx3tele.jpg

The telephoto end is equivalent to 300mm.

----
/94/3e37e4/cf48/12801-cx3contrast.jpg

With the in-camera HDR turned off the dynamic range is a little better than average for a 10MP compact.

----
/94/44d83e/e6e8/12801-cx3contrast2.jpg

The same shot with HDR on shows much more shadow and highlight detail.

----
/94/cfa366/8681/12801-cx3macro.jpg

Like many Ricoh cameras the CX3 has a 1cm macro range.

----
/94/db53d1/7b08/12801-cx3snow1.jpg

The very precise zoom control and on-screen level display allows shots to be framed perfectly.

----
/94/3c5a44/b993/12801-cx3snow2.jpg

The HDR setting works well for snow scenes too.
