Ric says i'm biased towards Sony. So brands of the equipment were intentionally left-out on the display here, and we could remain unprejudiced in our viewing.

Cameras for today's run are the RICOH GXR, with A12 28mm f2.5 lens module and SONY NEX 5N, with E35mm f1.8 prime lens. Both set to their full Auto mode; with a cameraman who is partial to Ricoh.

We have readers requesting for cameras to be tested on the same setting instead of letting the cameras run itself - it is more work for that, but we may try it out sometime.

Which shoots do you prefer?

The first picture of each pairing is taken by Sony, Ricoh follows. Ricoh's appeared somewhat dull in terms of lighting but I like its color tone, especially that of the last photo (above) albeit it is Sony that delivers true color of the food. I trust Ricoh is better off using manual setting.
