The Sony RX100 III is designed for the serious photographer looking for exceptional image quality in an extremely travel-friendly compact camera. The pop-up OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder is a first in the RX series and provides rich contrast viewing and extra flexibility when framing your images, while clearly displaying settings, so you can accurately monitor the results. Another big enhancement over its predecessor is the inclusion of a faster, wider 24-70mm f1.8-2.8 lens, which delivers better low light performance and a shallower depth-of-field. Other features include a built-in ND filter, a multi-angle 3.0″ LCD display, Wi-Fi with NFC and support for XAVC S format, for enhanced video recording of 1080/60p at 50Mbps.

Of renowned ZEISS manufacture, the Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70mm F1.8-2.8 lens provides great flexibility – letting this premium digital camera shoot wide, close, and with convenient zoom. Bright 70mm zoom with F2.8 aperture permits a 30cm (12″) working distance.
Advantages of an electronic viewfinder
An electronic viewfinder is the choice of many serious photographers since they can hold the camera rock-steady, right up to their eye, while accurately and quickly composing a shot. In this OLED Tru-Finder EVF, the high-contrast, high-resolution EL display boasts some 1,440K dots that are clear right out to the edges for distraction-free work.
Superb image quality
Thanks to the versatile ZEISS lens, 1.0-type sensor, and extremely fast processor, shoot low-light challenges to stunning wide-angles and get exactly the shot you envision, every time.
Movie moguls made here

Handle every challenge with multiple AF
A wide range of autofocus (AF) capabilities let you concentrate on your subject, not your equipment; two of them are outlined below. Lock-on AF keeps the frame size matching the subject size for improved tracking. Eye AF detects and focuses on the eye – even if the subject is partially turned.
Manual focus and custom settings
