Join B&H Photo’s Allen Weitz for a quick review of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC RX 100 III digital camera. Weitz points out many of the new camera’s technological and design improvements, including its amazing ability to capture in low-light scenarios with improved noise reduction and sharper detail than its predecessor. The camera’s Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70mm (35mm equivalent) f/1.8–2.8 lens allows greater depth-of-field control, and the OLED pop-up Tru-Finder shows exposure data as well as your subject. There’s also a tiltable 3" TFT LCD for more flexible composing of those high-and low-angle shots.

A rotating control ring around the lens lets you adjust various camera settings, and HD video capture in various formats and frame rates is available. A built-in 3-stop ND filter allows you to use slower shutter speeds in brighter light. The camera is also NFC enabled. We hope you enjoy the video, and invite you to view the wide selection of other instructional and informative videos at B&H.com.

I recently bought a Sony DSC RX 100 III from B & H. In the shooting menu 1. Imagine size menu option screen, I only have L. M. S. no VGA.  I looked at Photographer's Guide by Alexander S White for this model, it has VDA option screen.  I wonder why and would be appreciated if any one could tell me?

Thanks.

It looks as though VGA is only an option when the aspect ration is 4:3.  You will likely need to switch the aspect ration first, and then go to adjust the image size before VGA would show up as an option.  If you go into the menu and then into camera settings, you should find Aspect Ratio and can switch to 4:3 there.   

Looks great but didn't Fiji or someone just announce a compact camera that did 4K video.  Sounds like Sony handicapped this camera for its flagship models.  

                  I note that the market for home digital cameras sony line has favored us with resources, which, if obtained only in said cameras, semi-professional and professional ... and well ... show affordable prices!

Nice video and great little camera!  

Looks good. When does it hit the stores? No problems with the video. 

We anticipate being able to start filling orders for the RX100 III June 20th.  Though, at this time I wouldn’t be able to say how long it might take for us to fill the pre-orders and have the camera in stock on the shelf.

Uy parece magnífica estoy deseoso de tenerla.  Gracias por mostrar tantas bondades de la Sony RX100 III.

Video locked up and would not play!!

Why was I blocked from viewing the video?
