My new Ricoh CX4 just arrived. I like it because it does so many things–soft focus, night shots, “toy camera” effects–there are lots of art filters built in, which is perfect for me. I like to concentrate on photographing things from my everyday life, but I like to transform them in such a way that they take on new meanings. With all these creative tools, the CX4 is just what I need.One of the great things is that I can combine some of the special effects, which is something you can’t do on a lot of cameras. The pictures here combine the sepia tone and soft focus. I also like the sepia on this camera, as it is really brown, like old photographs. The “sepia” on many cameras is a sort of ugly pink. And the CX4 is tiny, so I can carry it everywhere. I hope there will be many more posts with this camera. These are from the first few pictures I took after work tonight.
