The 1.0-type Exmor R back-illuminated CMOS sensor ensures bright, clear detail in all your photos and video. Sony's special back-illuminated design permits four times better light capture by moving light-blocking wire circuitry to the back side of the sensor.
With BIONZ X, enhanced detail reproduction and diffraction-reducing technology reproduce fine lines more clearly and sharply. You get reduced blur from light points, especially at small apertures.
The 24 mm wide-angle gets more of the scene - ideal for architecture and landscapes, while the 70 mm setting (at a bright F2.8) is great for portraits, close-ups (30 cm distance) and creative background blurring, the Zeiss lens gives your recordings intense contrast and sharpness, free from glare and reflection thanks to an advanced multi-layer coating.
The high-speed BIONZ imaging processor powers rapid shooting up to 10 fps and flawlessly clean, natural images.
RX100 III upgrades you to the amazing Focus abilities, you can use manual focus options for creative control, lock-on autofocus to track moving subjects and get sharp images and to take great portraits it comes with Eye Autofocus which keeps subject’s eyes in focus.
If you’re not much into Manual setting, RX100 III comes with two easy to handle Auto Modes for great photography: In Intelligent Auto mode a single photo is taken which is based on the best settings for a particular shot automatically.
In Superior Auto mode multiple photos are taken and then the “best” output is composited out of all the burst images with back-light and noise related corrections.
Selfies have never been easier with a beautiful 7.6mm(3”) 1,229k dots Xtra Fine LCD Display that rotates in multiple angles. This also makes it easy to photograph over crowds or low to capture pets eye to eye by swinging up and down approximately 180 degrees. Easily scroll through menus and preview your shot thanks to WhiteMagic technology that dramatically increases visibility in bright daylight.
