  • Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III Digital Camera

    The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III Digital Camera is a versatile and advanced point-and-shoot featuring a large 20.1 megapixel 1" Exmor R CMOS sensor to produce high-resolution still imagery and full HD video. This sensor's design utilizes backside-illuminated technology to improve clarity and image quality when working in dimly-lit conditions as well as increase the sensitivity to a native ISO 12800. Benefitting the performance of this sensor is the BIONZ X image processor, which helps to produce images with smooth quality and tonal gradations as well as provide expedited performance throughout all aspects of the camera, including a continuous shooting rate of 10 fps in Speed Priority mode, shutter release lag of 0.008 sec., and XAVC S movie recording at 50 Mbps.

    The built-in Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 2.9x zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-70mm, covering wide-angle to portrait-length perspectives to suit working in a wide variety of environments. An f/1.8-2.8 maximum aperture benefits working in low lighting and controlling focus throughout the zoom range. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization is also available to help minimize the appearance of camera shake when working in dimly-lit conditions and with greater zoom magnifications. Furthermore, a built-in three-stop ND filter is incorporated into the camera's design to suit shooting in bright conditions with wider apertures and for greater control over how movement is depicted. The lens also features a Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating, which helps to reduce surface reflections, lens flare, and ghosting in order to produce imagery that is rich in contrast and clarity.

    Complementing the imaging capabilities of the RX100 III is a sleek body design featuring both an electronic viewfinder and a tilting LCD screen. The 0.39" 1,440k-dot SVGA OLED Tru-Finder has Zeiss T*-coated optics and provides a bright, clear means for eye-level viewing. It features a unique pop-up mechanism that helps to maintain the compact form factor of the camera when carrying or if preferring to work with the rear screen. The 3.0" 1,229k-dot Xtra Fine LCD incorporates WhiteMagic technology for easier visibility in bright conditions and its tilting design permits greater usability from high, low, and front-facing angles. Furthermore, built-in Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC allows instant image sharing to, as well as remote camera control and monitoring from, linked mobile devices.

    20.1MP 1" Exmor R BSI CMOS Sensor and BIONZ X Image Processor
    The large 20.1 megapixel 1" Exmor R CMOS sensor features backside-illuminated technology to enhance its low-light capabilities to a native ISO 12800 while still retaining vivid clarity. Using Sony's Column A/D Conversion and area-specified noise reduction, images are rendered with impressive quality and smooth gradations between tones and colors due to the marked, intelligent reduction in apparent noise. Further enhancing imaging quality, detail reproduction technology works to increase the fine detail rendering capabilities for a more three-dimensional, realistic image quality while diffraction-reducing technology helps to enhance the optical qualities of the lens by suppressing diffraction that is common when working at smaller apertures. Additionally, aiding working in difficult lighting conditions, the sensitivity can be extended to an effective ISO 25600 when using Multi-Frame NR, which records and composites sequential images in order to attain high sensitivity with minimal noise.

    Also benefitting the image quality, as well as overall camera performance, is the BIONZ X image processor, which provides continuous shooting up to 10 fps in Speed Priority Mode, 2.9 fps shooting with single-shot AF, a shutter lag time of just 0.008 sec., and a start-up time of 1.6 sec.
    Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* Lens
    The built-in Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-70mm, covering wide-angle to portrait length perspectives to suit working in a wide variety of shooting conditions. An f/1.8-2.8 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions throughout the entire zoom range and also enables greater control over focus placement for shallow depth of field imagery, which is further accentuated by a seven-blade diaphragm to produce a smooth out-of-focus quality. Nine aspherical elements, including two cemented AA (advanced aspherical) elements, are incorporated into the lens design to minimize chromatic aberrations throughout the zoom range to benefit creating sharp, clear imagery. The lens also features a Zeiss T* anti-reflective multi-layered coating to help minimize lens flare and ghosting in order to produce imagery with rich contrast and color neutrality.

    Benefitting the 2.9x reach of this lens, as well as supporting working in difficult lighting conditions and with longer shutter speeds, is Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, which helps to offset the effects of camera shake. When recording movies, the image stabilization utilizes an Intelligent Active Mode, which also uses electronic image stabilization to compensate for both camera shake and rolling shutter effects.

    Additionally, a neutral density 0.9 filter is incorporated into the camera's design, which provides a reduction of three stops in exposure to enable working in bright conditions with wider aperture settings and for greater control over how subject movement is rendered.
    Camera Design
    Within the compact design of the RX100 III is both a high-resolution electronic viewfinder and a large rear LCD monitor. The 0.39" 1,440k-dot SVGA OLED Tru-Finder EVF provides a bright, clear means for eye-level monitoring, which is well-suited to critical compositions and working in bright conditions. It features 100% frame coverage, a unique pop-up mechanism, and a Zeiss T* coating on the optics to reduce surface reflections and flare for enhanced visibility. Alternatively, a 3.0" 1,229k-dot Xtra Fine LCD screen is also available and features a tilting design (180° up, 45° down) to benefit working from high, low, and front-facing angles. WhiteMagic technology has been applied to the LCD's design, too, to increase effective brightness for easier viewing in bright lighting. When working with both viewing means, an integrated eye sensor automatically switches between both the EVF and LCD. Additionally, the camera can be turned on simply by popping the EVF into place.

    For intuitive, SLR-like adjustments over a variety of camera settings, a manual control ring surrounds the lens and features a smooth, click-less design for quick and quiet changing of settings. The ring can be assigned to control a variety of features, at different values, such as zoom, aperture, and Picture Effects. A step-zoom feature can be utilized, too, to allow instant switching between commonly used focal lengths.
    Full HD Video Recording
    Full HD 1920 x 1080 movies can be recorded in the high-quality XAVC S format, which uses a Long GOP (Group of Pictures) structure, MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 video compression, and linear PCM audio compression, and saves within the MP4 container format. These compressed files permit recording times up to 29 minutes while allowing 50 Mbps video recording at 1080/60p, 1080/30p, 1080/24p, and 720/120p frame rates. Full-pixel readout helps to minimize any artifacts in recordings due to the ability to utilize data from the entire image sensor, which ultimately results in smooth, high-resolution recordings. Movies can also be recorded in the AVCHD format, which is ideal for HDTV playback and Blu-ray disc burning, and the MP4 format, which is ideal for uploading online. Additionally, when shooting for two purposes in mind, dual recording is possible in different formats-XAVC S and MP4 or AVCHD and MP4-for the ability to instantly share footage while also having a higher quality version for subsequent editing.

    Benefitting advanced video applications, the RX100 III also supports clean HDMI output for recording uncompressed video via an optional external recorder and for real-time viewing on an accessory monitor. Recording frame rates include 24p, 60p, and 60i, and the shooting info display can be turned off during recording for a cleaner view when utilizing an external monitor.
    Built-In Wi-Fi Connectivity with NFC
    Built-in Wi-Fi connectivity enables instant transferring of imagery to mobile devices for direct sharing online to social networking, via email, and to cloud storage sites. NFC (Near Field Communication) is also supported, which allows for one-touch connection between the camera and compatible mobile devices, with no complex set-up required. Once connected, the linked mobile device can also display a live view image on its screen and, using Smart Remote Control, remotely control the camera's shutter release.

    Additionally, PlayMemories Camera Apps are also supported via the built-in Wi-Fi connection, and allow you to personalize the camera's features depending on specific shooting styles. Apps are available to suit creating portraits, detailed close-ups, sports, time lapse, motion shot, and other specific types of imagery.
    Other Camera Features
    • A contrast-detection autofocus system works to acquire precise focus using single-shot or continuous AF modes. When working with moving subjects, Lock-on AF, with wide, center, and flexible spots, adjusts the target frame size as the subject moves throughout the image frame. Face detection and face registration technologies can be used to base focus on recognized faces and Eye AF is also available, which is a detail-oriented focusing function that prioritizes and dedicates focusing performance on a subject's pupil for sharply-rendered portraits.
    • For manual focus control, DMF (Direct Manual Focus) and standard manual focus options are available. Benefitting precise manual focus, focus peaking can be used, which highlights edges of contrast within the frame for a more objective means of determining critical sharpness, or MF Assist is available, which enlarges the image for a better view of important details.
    • A zebra function can be used for easier detection of exposure clipping to prevent overexposure.
    • A dedicated Custom button permits assigning of one of 42 possible functions for instant, one-touch access to a chosen control.
    • A digital level gauge detects pitch and roll types of movement and helps to produce even, consistent horizons and plumb verticals.
    • Smile Shutter technology enables the camera to automatically release the shutter when a subject's smile is detected
    • Multi Frame NR records consecutive images at a reduced ISO sensitivity and then composites them into a single image to realize higher effective sensitivity (up to an equivalent ISO 25600) with minimal image noise. Standard image compositing is comprised of four exposures and High image compositing utilizes 12 distinct exposures.
    • Dynamic Range Optimizer (DRO) works to improve images featuring backlit subjects or scenes with high contrast where details can be lost in the shadows or highlights. This mode can be controlled automatically or fine-tuned using five settings.
    • Picture Effect modes allow you to apply creative settings and emphasize certain facets of individual images for a richer, more aesthetic picture quality. Posterization (Color/B&W), Pop Color, Retro Photo, Partial Color (R/G/B/Y), High Contrast Monochrome, Toy Camera, Soft High-Key, Soft Focus, HDR Painting, Rich-Tone Monochrome, Miniature, Watercolor, and Illustration modes are available.
    • Creative Style settings provide control over how the camera processes images based on different predetermined styles: Standard, Vivid, Neutral, Clear, Deep, Light, Portrait, Landscape, Sunset, Night Scene, Autumn Leaves, Black & White, Sepia, and Style Box. Within these settings, contrast, saturation, and sharpness can also be adjusted depending on personal preference.
    • To extend the effective reach of the optical zoom lens, Clear Image digital zoom can be used to intelligently magnify scenes up to 5.8x at full-resolution. This digital zoom technology uses an intelligent interpolation process to minimize the amount of image degradation in order to produce realistic, high-quality images.
    • In-camera creation of 4K slide shows is possible for rich playback to ultra high definition televisions. An HDMI port is incorporated into the camera's design, too, to enable direct connection to HDTVs.

Sony DSC-RX100 III Reviews

Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III Digital Camera Video Creator Kit is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 258.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony RX100 M3 - Excellent Pocket Size Camera - Great Photos I've sold my Nikon DSLR system equipment and wanted a smaller camera without a great sacrifice in photo quality. This little camera is just right for me. The 20 Mp. resolution and zoom lens help to make this a real camera. What really does it though, is the pop-up EVF. This assures that its a really useful piece of photographic gear. I use the camera for hiking, travel and family get togethers. The articulated display panel is good for confirming shots and perfect for menu settings. Sony really has done a great design job with this series. I chose this model instead of the RX100 M4 because I don't intend to shoot as much video as still shots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A remarkablle best of breed P&S camera I am a professional documentary photographer, who works soley with available light. The Sony RX1000 III perfectly fulfills my needs for a compact, unobtrusive, quiet, camera with fast lens, low noise, and professional level optical resolution. The image quality is supurb. The focus is often spot on, but is slow and inconsistent in dim light. The memu is more complex than necessary, with important adjustments, such as focus point, not immediately available at the menu top. The image quality, color balance, anti-vibration, and dynamic range, easily rivals my APS-sized DSLR, and its covenience is unmatched. This will be my main camera for all future documentary work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Camera This is an excellent camera that is very easy to use. The Sony menus are clear and very intuitive. Photos and AVCHD videos are great. The camera is a bit heavy but its made of high quality aluminum and not some cheap plastic. I love the built in EVF it works great in bright sunshine when the LCD is difficult to see. The zoom is a little short, i would have preferred a 10X zoom. The camera is expensive but its worth it. The large sensor makes all the difference in photo quality. I have a micro HDMI cable and i view all my photos and videos directly on my 50 HDTV and the quality is fantastic.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Point and Shoot I bought this camera expecting the hype to be half true in that the image quality would blow me away for such a compact camera. While good, I would not say it was all that it was hyped to be. I've seen a lot of comparisons to the A6000 which, with the kit lens, is about on par with the RX100m3. However, add just about any Sony/Zeiss lens to the A6000 and the contest is over. My first RX100m3 arrived DOA. After a few weeks, I'd say my A6000 is the keeper. If you're looking for a camera that will fit in your pocket, this is it. If you want a light weight camera with great image quality, get the a6000 with a 16-70 lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great compact from Sony I shoot with the RX100 III more than 9 months. Before I had a RX100 who was a really great camera and make my enthusiast with the RX series. First of all, the RX100 III makes for such a small camera stunning photos. Its very well build. The perfect (second) companion for trips and Holidays. It is the camera for having it mostly on automatic (the Green setting) or SCN modus. Go on safe and the results are 98% superb. The buttons are too small en to near placed to each other. So its not the camera for the A, S modus. Then I recommend the Lumix LX100 whos is a realy great camera too but a little less compact.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from RX100 worst camrera ever About 2 years ago, I purchased the RX100 from B&H. I really really enjoyed that camera and while it worked, my DSLR gathered dust. Then one day, one week after warranty expired, the lens would not retract or retract on its own. Brought it in to Sony: expensive repair. A month later, lens problems again and sensor would not work. They say corrosion due to humidity. Expensive repair? Nope. Goodbye Sony forever. (Also, my GF had another Sony compact, which has been plagued with problems.) Internet search discloses major repetitive problems with Sony hardware, and very very bad service. Like Nancy used to say, Just say No to Sony altogether.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with the camera I'm pleased with the camera. I use it to photograph all the activities associated with the non-profit organization I volunteer with--outdoor activity/people/kids. It's small enough to carry in a big pocket, the optics are terrific and it produces quality results. The manual is the weakest part of the whole package so it's worth it to hunt up and purchase a private reference. The optional at extra price grip is worth it to hang onto it, as it's a dinky thing. Like lots of new toys, there's a learning curve. My thumb spins the wheel dial on the back when I'm not paying attention and there's still tons to learn and master. I just found out I can lock that wheel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointingly Fussy Camera I hoped this would be the travel camera of my dreams. It is small, with an excellent lens, great image quality and an EVF; but I was sadly disappointed by its fussy ergonomics. The video button is actually set into one side of the thumb pad(!), so count on making frequent unintended videos. Worse, this takes the camera offline for stills till you deal with killing the video. The EVF is optically excellent, but also poorly designed, requiring one step to release the EVF and another to pull its eyepiece into position. Once set up, there is no adequate detent to keep it in position, and the least pressure on the eyepiece pushes it in and blurs the image. A big disappointment.

question

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.

question

How does the warranty work? If it is broken or something would happen to it( manufacturing errors) , I take it to Bhphotovideo or Sony? I live in San Francisco so far away from Bhphotovideo in New York.
Asked by: Anonymous
There are currently many reports of poor warranty support from Sony. The most aggravating is apparently that the circuit board will develop corrosion regardless of how well you care for the camera and Sony will not honor this under warranty. Lots of complaints about poor support. It caused me enough concern I called Sony support and the agent confirmed the above. It caused me to not risk buying the camera. It seems electronics made in China carry about a 25-30% problem rate best I can see by reading reviews. You can lay down your money and takes your chances........not me. Too bad. Sony has historically made great stuff. I just can't afford the risk myself.

I would like to know a specific highly rated neck ...

I would like to know a specific highly rated neck strap that would work with this and also of any additional items I might need to buy to hook it to this camera? I am pretty confused about what would work. Thx. Kathy
Asked by: Kathy
Two of my favorite straps that would be comatible for use with the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III Digital Camera, B&H # SODSCRX1003, would be the BlackRapid Cross Shot Breathe Camera Strap (Black), B&H # BL361001, which is a cross-body sling strap that conects to the tripod screw thread on the bottom of the camera, or the Peak Design L-2 Leash Camera Strap, B&H # PEQCCSL2, which is a standard neck strap that would connect to the strap lugs on the sides of the camera. Both are high-quality straps that are extremely popular and would be great recommendations for use on your camera. All items required for usage are included with each recommended strap.
