Combining 20.1 MP1 image quality, electronic viewfinder, bright Carl Zeiss® lens and compact size, the RX100 III is crafted for serious photographers on the go - it's Perfection in your Pocket!

 

One-of-a-Kind Performance, All-in-One Convenience

Wider, brighter lens, built-in OLED viewfinder with ZEISS® T* coating, BIONZ X™ processor and much more. It's all here in a sleek package that's easy to carry and a pleasure to use.

  • ZEISS® lens with 24mm wide-angle shooting and a large aperture even in zoom;
  • Shoot with the high-precision built-in OLED viewfinder with ZEISS T* coating;
  • Full-pixel readout at 50 Mbps plus high resolution XAVC S movie recording.

 

Shoot Wider and Closer

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.

  • 24mm wide-angle advantage;
  • 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 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.
