First Look: Sony revs-up the RX100 III in more ways than one1:23 /
Sony pulls no punches in making its 1-inch sensor compact camera even better than before by adding an electronic viewfinder and faster lens.
[MUSIC] Advanced compact cameras are a dime a dozen and this latest release from Sony is bound to confuse things a little bit if you're in the market for a new model. I'm Lexy Savvides for CNet. This is a first look at the brand new Sony R-X 100 Mark three. Inside is the same 20 mega pixel, VSI sensor from Sony, same as on the Mark two, but the image processor is totally different. The lens is where the biggest changes have been made by Sony. So now, it's roughly equivalent to a 24 to 70 millimeter lens. Maximum aperture range is now between F 1.8 and F 2.8, which is really quite nice and bright. On the outside of the top you get a pop-up flash that still bends and tilts back, so you can do all sorts of cool bouncing effects. There is now, an integrated electronic view finder so all you need to do hit the switch here, pop up the electronic view finder, pull it out a little bit as well, other options include on the module your four manual control plus automatic mode. Sony's scene panorama mode and inside you also get 1080p video and the option to shoot in XAVC S. This has been a quick first look at the brand new Sony RX100 Mark 3, check out all of our first impressions and the full specs over at CNet.
