I'm not being able to record in XAVC format even on a class 10 94 mb/s Sony SD card: there any particular SD cards that are compatible with the RX100iii?Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
I am sorry for the problem you are having with the video. According to Sony it will only record the XAVC format if you are using an SDXC memory card (64GB or higher). We recommend this Sony 64GB card. Please see the following link:

Is there a way to save the user settings?

Is there a way to save the user settings?
Asked by: Larry
Essentially, any digital camera retains the settings the user makes until the user changes them. If you mean can the camera keep multiple groups of settings, such as for different photo conditions, then the answer is no. To the best of my knowledge, no camera has this feature.

The Sony RX-100 Mark III allows you to use your Android or iPhone to be used as the remote. You can fire the camera remotely for still photos and/or you can start and stop the video from your smart phone.

My macbook pro does not recognize the camera. It seems the camera isn't connecting wirelessly. The camera says to connect using the supplied usb cable, that however doesn't work with the new mac book connections?
Asked by: Robert P.
The wireless connection from the camera can only go to mobile devices (smartphones/tablets) with the downloaded Sony mobile app. Not to desktop or laptop computers. If the macbook does not have a USB port then there is not a way to connect the camera to the computer. You would need a different device.
