New Sony RX100 Mark III Comes With Wider, Brighter Lens And Pop-Up Viewfinder 0

A certified selfie-friendly camera, the Sony RX100 Mark III comes with 20.1MP 1-inch CMOS sensor, ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 lens, full HD video capability (120fps at 720p), and a faster Bionz X processor similar to what the A7 series use. Selfie enthusiasts will find the articulating LCD screen a nice addition. And as a surprise, you’ll appreciate the pop-up “Tru-Finder” that features 1.4M-dot OLED “specially-designed eyepiece lens with ZEISS T* coating.” In exchange, the RX100III loses the hot shoe found on the RX100II. And yes, it has the now standard Wi-Fi and NFC functions.

Here’s an excerpt from Sony’s official press release:

“Sony continues to push the modern limits of engineering and innovation with our Cyber-shot RX family of products” said Patrick Huang, director of the Cyber-shot business at Sony Electronics.  “With the new RX100 III model, we’ve added a brighter, wider aperture lens and an impressive retractable OLED EVF, while also utilizing the latest Sony imaging technologies to boost the camera’s processing speed and efficiency.  And we’ve done this without sacrificing any of the true ‘pocketability’ of our RX100 line, creating an especially unique compact camera unlike anything else in market today.”

The Sony RX100 Mark III is set to arrive next month, with a price tag of around $800.
