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 electronic display boasts some 1,440 K dots that are clear right up to the edges for distraction-free work.
Not only does the ZEISS® T* coating help cut glare for reduced eye-fatigue, the entire viewfinder is designed to minimise blurring caused by eye shake.
Turn on your camera and start composing the shot—all in a moment. Popping up the electronic viewfinder automatically activates the camera so you are ready to go instantly.
Superb Image Quality
Thanks to the versatile ZEISS® lens, 1.0-type back-illuminated Exmor R™ CMOS 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
Whatever your vision, multi-format shooting and simultaneous recording features of the RX100 III will help put it on the screen, while the Intelligent Active Mode cuts camera shake for pro results.
- Get full-pixel readout at 50 Mpbs, plus high-resolution XAVC S movie recording;
- XAVC S enables beautiful video recording with a very high bit-rate;
- Simultaneously record top-quality AVCHD or XAVC S and web-friendly MP4 formats.
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
Between the wide variety of manual options and a custom button, you can quickly bring more creative control to every shot.
- MF Assist (enlarging the image) and other features make manual focus easier;
- Assign up to 42 functions to the “C” custom button for personalized control.
