Richard Parris said: 'Another interesting finding from our results showed that the Ricoh CX2 didn't perform quite as well as its predecessor, the Ricoh CX1. Despite the two models having the same sensor, the picture quality was different due to the new, and more powerful lens fitted to the CX2.
More powerful optical zoom
'The CX1 featured 7.1x optical zoom compared with the 10.7x zoom found on the CX2. This goes to show that increased specifications don't always yield superior image quality.'
Also on test was the Canon Ixus 200 IS, the first Canon camera to feature a touchscreen interface, the super-wide angle Sony CyberShot WX1 and the super-slim Sony CyberShot TX1.
