    Sony Cyber-Shot 20.1 Megapixel Black Digital Camera - DSC-RX100M3/B

    Get closer to your subject with this Sony Cyber-Shot digital camera. It starts with a 20.1-megapixel Exmor sensor that uses back-illuminated technology to provide low noise, low artifacting and high resolutions, and this is accompanied by the BIONZ X image processing technology, which produces vivid colors and deep contrasts from every frame. The bright f/1.8 Carl Zeiss lens is integrated into this camera and incorporates DSLR lens technology so that images are clean and have reduced chromatic aberration. This Sony digital camera even includes an OLED viewfinder and a tiltable multi-angle screen so that you can take images from almost any angle.

    This Sony camera has multiple shooting modes, including an HD movie mode. This makes it ideal for recording your favorite scenes with your family or your friends so that you always have a memory of the happy events. In addition, it includes an HDMI output so that you can incorporate ultra-high-quality video recordings of various adventures. The integrated control ring of this Sony Cyber-Shot digital camera makes it simple to manually adjust it for precision focusing.


    • 20.1 MP 1-inch Exmor R® Sensor
      Featuring a large 1.0” Exmor R® CMOS image sensor. The back-illuminated technology doubles light sensitivity and combines with Sony’s Column A/D Conversion to reduce noise levels — a great help when photographing in dimly lit environments. Markedly reduced noise is evident even when high-sensitivity settings are used for capturing night landscapes or indoor scenes
    • Bright F1.8 Carl Zeiss® Vario-Sonnar T* lens (24-70mm)
      The DSC-RX100 III sports an all new bright F1.8-2.8 Carl Zeiss® Vario-Sonnar T* lens with 24-70mm zoom. The lens is perfect for portraits and macro shots with beautiful defocused - bokeh backgrounds. A premium multi-layered T* coating also dramatically reduces ghost and flare caused by light reflection
    • Built-in SVGA OLED viewfinder w/ZEISS T* coating
      View every scene in rich detail with the bright and retractable SVGA OLED Tru-Finder. The viewfinder faithfully displays what will appear in your recording, including the effects of your camera settings, so you can accurately monitor the results. The ZEISS T* coating enhances clarity and reduces flare and reflection in the eyepiece optics
    • Selfie-ready multi-angle 3" Xtra Fine LCD™ display
      Selfies have never been easier with a beautiful 3” (1,229k dots) Xtra Fine™ LCD Display that rotates in multiple angles. This also makes it easy to photograph over crowds or low to capture pets eye to eye by swinging up approx. 180° and down approx. 45°. Easily scroll through menus and preview life thanks to WhiteMagic™ technology that dramatically increases visibility in bright daylight. The large display delivers brilliant-quality still images and movies while enabling easy focusing operation
    • Versatile shooting w/ XAVC S2, AVCHD and MP4 codes
      The DSC-RX100 III records HD movies1 in the XAVC S2 format, which uses MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 for video compression and linear PCM for audio compression, while saving files in a MP4 wrapper. The highly compressed files allow extensive record times. With 50Mbps Full HD (1920x1080) 60p high quality video recording, XAVC S2 enables beautiful video recording with minimal compression noise even in scenes with a lot of movement. Linear PCM is adopted for audio compression. The camera also records in AVCHD, ideal for quality video for HDTV and Blu-ray Disc™ burning. Additionally, users can shoot the easily shareable MP4 HD video, ideal for web
    • Built-in ND filter for wider-ranging photographic expression
      Realize a wider range of photographic expression with built-in 1/8 (3 EV stops) ND filter that allows the use of wider aperture for defocused backgrounds even in bright daylight
    • HDMI® clear output for uncompressed video recordings
      Clear, uncompressed digital movie signal output can be transferred to an external monitor/recorder (connected via the HDMI® terminal) simultaneously in real time from the RX100 III3. The shooting info display can be turned off for even cleaner views of such movies on an external monitor/recorder. Frame rates include 24p, 60p and 60i
    • Comfortable control ring for manual operation
      A unique control ring around the lens works in combination with an intuitive, displayed user interface for meticulous SLR-type control over settings that satisfies even the most fastidious users. The control ring can be assigned to adjust various features (at various values) from basics like zooming and aperture to creative functions like Picture Effect. Moreover, it turns smoothly and seamlessly, allowing quiet, click-free usage while shooting movies including a new step-zoom function that enables instant selection of commonly used focal lengths
    • Simple connectivity to smartphones via Wi-Fi® w/ NFC
      Connectivity with smartphones for One-touch sharing/One-touch remote has been simplified with Wi-Fi®/NFC control. In addition to Wi-Fi support for connecting to smartphones, the DSC-RX100 III also supports NFC (near field communication) - - providing “touch connection” convenience when transferring images to compatible Android™ smartphones and tablets. Users need only touch devices to connect; no complex set-up is required. Moreover, when using Smart Remote Control — a feature that allows shutter release to be controlled by a smartphone — connection between DSC-RX100 III and the smartphone can be established by simply touching devices
