Cameras: Sony soups-up its RX100 III in more ways than one

1:23 /

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 with cnet. This is the first look at the brand new Sony RX100 Mark III. Inside is the same 20 megapixels [UNKNOWN] sized sensor from Sony, same as on the Mark II 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 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 mode dial, your full manual control [INAUDIBLE] automatic mode, Sony same panorama modes, and inside you also get 1080p video and the option to shoot in XAVCS. This has been a quick first look at the brand new Sony RX100 Mach III. Check out all of our first impressions and a full specs over at CNET.
