The digital point-and-shoot range from Ricoh is being further boosted with the impending arrival of the new CX3. A worthy successor for the CX2, the new camera boasts of capabilities that would aid it record 720p HD video. Ricoh will bring the new CX3 to dealerships this month itself. We also hear that the US market may have to wait a bit more to see the CX3 arrive for real.

The new Ricoh CX3 sports a 10-megapixel CMOS sensor, which has been back-illuminated in a bid to point and shoot detailed pictures even in low-lit situations. Ricoh has gone into much detail while building the new camera. The cute looks make it very clear that appearance has been given much elaborate thought. It is not just he looks, however. Under the hood, the Ricoh CX3 has all capabilities to minimize noise and sports much effective capabilities toward greater sensitivity too.

If you have played with the earlier CX2 model, you would know the camera maker has extended its love for the 10.7x zoom wide angle zoom lens. The lens has been featured in the latest model too. Further, the dynamic double shot mode, which was another feature in the predecessor model, has also been carried over with a few enhancements.

Other feaures include automatic scene mode detection, five new levels of dynamic range expansion effect and a few more additions. The camera also boasts of an auto focus option that would aid the user to follow track moving subjects and click continuously up to five frames per second. A 3-inch LCD screen also has been thrown in as an addition. Likely to start at $440, the camera will sport hues of black, purple, and pink on gray. We are just waiting for the CX3 to debut.
