The award-winning Sony RX10 III is in a class of its own when it comes to bridge cameras, offering superior image quality, a stunning zoom range and revolutionary video capabilities.
People choose a bridge camera because they want the convenience of high-quality performance and a versatile zoom range. The RX10 III does not disappoint in either area, offering up to 25x optical zoom, equivalent to a focal range of 24-600mm with an f2.4-4 aperture range. Using the RX10 III, photographers can comfortably cover a broad selection of photographic subjects, from landscape photography to wildlife photography, and everything in between. The RX10 III’s anti-distortion and electronic shutter can shoot at up to 1/32000 sec and deliver sharp, undistorted shots. It can also capture stills silently, perfect for wildlife or sports such as tennis and golf.
Sony’s intelligent Optical SteadyShot provides some welcome stability, equivalent to 4.5 steps of compensation, which allows users to take pictures at slower shutter speeds when shooting handheld. The lens can focus on subjects as close as 3cm at its wide end, perfect for capturing detailed macro subjects. It also features Sony’s intelligent Eye-AF that can detect an eye, even when your subject is partially turned away from the camera, delivering sharp focus on faces. When focusing manually, the screen automatically zooms in to magnify the focus area, making it easier to achieve focus accurately. The impressive zoom lens of the RX10 III delivers high contrast and detailed images with attractive background blur, thanks to its 9-blade aperture design and premium glass elements.
The RX10 III contains a 1-inch stacked 20.1-megapixel Exmor RS CMOS sensor with Sony BIONZ X processing. Its powerful processor can reduce noise intelligently up to ISO 12800 and capture full-resolution images at up to 14fps. It also shoots in an uncompressed RAW file format, as well as JPEG. In terms of autofocusing, the RX10 III can actuate in as little as 0.09 seconds, even at 600mm. When tracking subjects, the RX10 III can shoot at 5fps in continuous burst mode. But it also allows users to select 8MP stills from recorded 4K/30p footage, meaning you should never miss a decisive moment when using the RX10 III.
The convenience of the RX10 III means photographers can cover a range of subjects without the need or fuss of having to change lenses. Composing your photos can be done via the camera’s 2.35M-dot XGA OLED viewfinder, a great option for bright sunny days. While an eye sensor on the EVF allows you to seamlessly switch between using the viewfinder and the camera’s 3-inch 1229k-dot LCD screen. Additionally, the RX10 III’s screen can be tilted upwards and downwards for composing shots at creative angles.
