Sony RX100 Mark III’s predecessor, the Mark II was one of a kind camera. 1″ sensor is quite big for such compact camera. Every one was impressed with Sony’s engineering team. Sony, in their latest iteration, did something even better. They added an Electronic View Finder in the body of the RX100 Mark III. That is one great accomplishment.
Talking about photos, Sony RX100 Mark III takes excellent photos. The 20.9MP 1″ CMOS sensor takes amazing photos in both outdoors and in low light situation. The pop-out flash helps in complete dark situations. 1″ sensor is way larger than typical 1/2.3″ sensors used in digital compact cameras. Bigger sensor = better depth of field resulting in professional looking photos.
Still photography isn’t the only thing that makes the Sony RX100 MarkIII shine. This camera is capable of capturing excellent videos too. This camera can do 1080p 60fps in very respectable frame-rate.Many professional Youtubers like Marquees Brownlee use this camera for shooting videos. This is a very capable video recorder too!
The on-board OLED pop-up view finder is also really good. In a sunny day when it is very bright to view the screen, this OLED viewfinder comes really handy.
