The Sony RX10III (RX10M3) is the latest version of the RX10 model line. The version III offers a large-aperture 24-600mm equivalent F2.4-4 optical 25x zoom lens and 1.0-type stacked CMOS sensor make subjects stand out beautifully, even when shot in extreme close-up. Extended zoom, blazing speed make for a fantastic shooting experience. The Lens is a specially developed Zeiss Vario-Sonnar lens, with 25x optical zoom is equivalent of an impressive 24-600mm focal length useful from sweeping landscapes to full on telephoto distance work, whilst maintaining a fast F2.4-4 aperture. 4K and HD movie recording, and 960fps4 (40x) High-speed shooting are some other fantastic features of the RX10 Mark III. Takes 72mm filters.
The first 25x optical zoom lens in a RX series camera features 24-600mm extra-wide-angle to ultra-telephoto zoom range in a bright F2.4-4 lens; Super-ED glass, ED glass and aspherical lens elements to maintain excellent image resolution, contrast and quality; and nine-blade aperture unit for outstanding depiction of bokeh background. A large 1.0-type Exmor RS CMOS image sensor with approx. 20.1 effective megapixels achieves more captivating results, thanks to a stacked architecture that expands and speeds up signal processing, back illumination technology to increase light collection efficiency and reduce noise in shots taken at up to ISO 12800, and attached DRAM chip for faster large-volume output that in-camera 4K super slow motion recording requires.
4K movies can be recorded with full pixel readout and no pixel binning, for the ultimate image resolution with less moiré and jaggies. A high-speed front-end LSI that supports image processing greatly reduces “rolling shutter” (diagonal skewing) distortion that is commonly seen in video footage of fast-moving subjects.
Along with great zoom coverage up to 600mm, the RX10 III features 0.09-sec.18 high-speed AF. By assessing the subject even before the shutter button is pressed halfway, the system’s subject detection algorithm accurately predicts the proper point of focus, upon which the camera focuses as soon as the button is pressed.
Optical image stabilisation technology developed exclusively by Sony is especially valuable for handheld still and movie shooting, especially in low light or at the ultra-telephoto end of the zoom range up to 600mm15. This system is equivalent to a 4.5-stop21-faster shutter speed, and prevents camera blur to ensure smooth, stable framing and shooting.
The rolling shutter phenomenon distorts images of fast moving subjects. The RX10 III can suppress it when shooting at up to a shutter speed of 1/32000 sec.. Ensuring that you can capture sharp, undistorted images of sports such as tennis. Plus its electronic shutter can operate silently, allowing you to shoot concerts, wildlife, and other subjects without disturbing the environment.
To faithfully reproduce and fine-tune detail and texture, this image processor works with the lens and Exmor RS stacked-type image sensor to handle approx. 20.1 effective megapixels of data with great speed and precision. Diffraction reduction to maintain image clarity even at smaller aperture settings and area-specific noise reduction according to image area characteristics also help to maintain high image quality.
With high magnification (0.70x), contrast and resolution, this electronic viewfinder displays great depth. The equivalent of approx. 2.35 million dots on display reproduce rich tones and colours even in dark areas, for realistic images that match the high quality of the final recording. ZEISS T* Coating significantly reduces surface reflection from the sun and other light sources.
Lens manual rings for focus, zoom and aperture provide comfortable, adaptable control, especially as you look through the viewfinder. Multi Interface (MI) Shoe makes it easy to connect flash units, microphones and other accessories. Dust- and moisture-resistant22 sealant and construction of operating parts allow the camera to withstand rugged conditions.
When you lose track of a moving subject while framing (which often occurs in ultra-telephoto shooting), press and hold down the C (custom) button24 to which Zoom Assist is assigned to trigger Zoom Assist function’s automatic zoom-out. Find and frame up the subject again, then release the button, and the camera automatically zooms back in to the original focal length, so you can resume shooting the subject.
Gain flexibility to make more expressive movies in post-production. S-Log225 gamma curves feature wide dynamic range (up to 1300%) to reduce whiteout and blackout in the colour grading process.
With this function, you can view while recording in S-Log gamma, converting S-Log2 into ITU709 (800%) gamma for monitoring images, or checking focus while enlarging an image on the LCD screen or viewfinder.
The camera supports not only uncompressed movie recording on external recording equipment - it also lets you output such high-quality movies for real-time viewing on an external monitor, so you can confirm focus and other details more clearly while recording in-camera.
Simplify exposure monitoring, especially when shooting in S-Log gamma setting. Target a video signal brightness level from 0-109%, set a range between +10% and -10% of that value, and zebra pattern indicates areas with that level of exposure within that range. New minimum brightness level setting reliably warns you to avoid blown-out highlights.
Picture Profile menu supports professional-style changes of parameters such as Gamma Curve and Detail for basic contrast, colour adjustment, gradation of brightness, and image edging. XAVC S/AVCHD movie formats.
With high-bit-rate XAVC S17 format, which is based on the XAVC format that’s highly reputable among professionals, serious moviemakers can record high-quality 4K and Full HD movies with minimal compression noise at maximum bit rates of 100Mbps and 50Mbps, respectively. The RX10 III also offers you options to easily record, edit and share AVCHD format movies.
The custom (C) button allows you to set one of over 58 possible functions to adapt the camera’s capabilities to your shooting style. Assign a frequently used function or preferred setting to this button. Then, you can promptly call up that function or setting. Access to your selection will be available at your fingertip, for faster, more intuitive camera operation.
The sensor’s heightened processing speed enables the RX10 III to capture very precise still images without pixel binning while recording a movie. The result: high-quality images of up to 17MP resolution.
You can select a decisive moment from a movie recording and save it as a picture, in the form of a highly detailed 8-megapixel still image file from a 4K movie. From Full HD footage, you can create a 2-megapixel still image file.
Even when capturing a subject partially turned away from the camera with a shallow depth of field, the face is sharply focused thanks to extremely accurate Eye AF. A green frame appears over the prioritised eye when focus has been achieved.
Simply press the shutter button halfway to activate Lock-on AF. It automatically adjusts the AF target frame size to match the subject size, improve tracking performance, and take full advantage of every photo opportunity.
Download and install a Remote Camera Control application on a computer in order to change camera settings, shoot images, and otherwise operate the camera from the computer via USB connection of the camera to the computer. The image data recorded on the camera will be stored directly.
One-touch remote makes your smartphone or tablet a viewfinder/remote control. One-touch sharing transfers photos/videos to your device for SNS sharing. Just install a PlayMemories Mobile app via Wi-Fi to your NFC-enabled Android device, then touch the device to the camera to connect them. No NFC? No problem, as new QR code compatibility can also pair the devices.
