Large-aperture high-magnification zoom extends expressive potential

Together, a large-aperture 24-600 mm1 F2.4-4 optical 25x zoom lens and 13.2 x 8.8 mm (1.0-type) stacked CMOS sensor make subjects stand out beautifully, even when shot in extreme close-up. Extended zoom, blazing speed and complete silence3 make for a new shooting experience.

High zoom 24-600mm1 (25x) F2.4-4.0 ZEISS®Vario-Sonnar T* lens

The RX10 III features an astonishing 24-600mm1 (25x) zoom range in a bright F2.4-4 lens that can take full advantage of the large 1" (1.0-type) image sensor. See subjects stand out beautifully in all kinds of scenes from wide-angle landscapes to ultra-telephoto sports action. The 9-blade circular aperture unit creates a nearly perfect circle throughout the aperture range of F2.4 to F11 which creates beautiful bokeh, for background defocus that amplifies dimensionality and ensures that point light sources appear as circles in images. Eight ED glass elements including two ED aspherical and one Super ED lenses compensate for the chromatic aberration that could otherwise be apparent in telephoto shots, and ZEISS® T* Coating helps reduce flare and ghosting, achieving high contrast plus sharp image quality throughout the zoom range. An advanced aspherical (AA) lens enhances reproduction of detail and keeps the large-aperture lens as compact as possible.

20.1 MP 1" Exmor RS® stacked back illuminated CMOS sensor w/ DRAM

Sony RX10 III with F2.4-4 large-aperture 24-600mm zoom lens

The large 1" (1.0-type) stacked 20.1 MP CMOS image sensor with DRAM chip performs at blazingly fast shutter speed of up to 1/32000, captures images at up to 14 fps (frames per second), ultra-sharp 4k movie without pixel binning and super slow-motion HFR (High Frame Rate) recording of up to 960fps (40x) movie clips – not to mention remarkable low-light low-noise capability.

4K movie recording2 w/ direct pixel readout and no pixel binning3

Full pixel readout without pixel binning collects approx. 1.7 times as much information as is required for 4K (QFHD: 3840 x 2160) movie2 output. This oversampling effect enhances image detail as it minimizes moiré and jaggies. A high-speed front-end LSI helps the BIONZ X image processing engine reduce image skew, smear and wobble (resulting from rolling shutter phenomenon) that can otherwise distort how fast-moving subjects look in 4K movies. High-bit-rate (up to 100Mbps) XAVC S3 format ensures high-quality movies with minimal noise from compression.

Ultra telephoto super slow motion4 at up to 960fps (40x)

See the unseen with super-speed HFR (High Frame Rate). The stacked CMOS sensor enables shooting at an extra-high frame rate up to 960fps (40x) high-speed shooting of exceptionally clear, smooth close-up action, all the way up the ultra-telephoto range, ideal for sports events, etc. So the camera can capture great close-ups of faraway players on fields in arenas in super slow motion detail. You can chose from 960fps, 480fps or 240fps4 to playback in XAVC S at 1920 x 1080, in 60p, 30p or 24p. Choose between "quality priority" (2 sec.) and "shoot time priority" (4 sec.). There's also an option to set "start trigger" or "end trigger" which will start capturing movie before or after you press the movie rec. button so you can time those split-second moments perfectly.

Fast Intelligent autofocus as quick as 0.09-sec.5

Along with great zoom range coverage up to 600mm1, the RX10 III features 0.09-sec.5high-speed AF (autofocus). By assessing the subject even before the shutter button is pressed halfway, the system's subject detection algorithm accurately predicts the proper point of focus letting users capture decisive moments of sports and other events. Smooth, accurate focus is effective in shooting 4K movies, for which accurate focus is especially crucial, as well as stills.

Super-speed Anti-Distortion Shutter at max. 1/32000 sec.

Thanks to dramatically accelerated sensor readout, shutter speeds of up to 1/32000 sec. minimize distortion caused by rolling shutter phenomenon. This new blazing-fast - Anti-Distortion Shutter system - can capture shots of swiftly moving subjects without altering their shape as conventional CMOS sensors tend to do. Additionally, the super high speed shutter gives you freedom to shoot photos with defocused backgrounds by using large aperture settings under very bright lighting conditions.

Catch the decisive moment at 14 fps7

Despite its high pixel count of over 20 megapixels, the camera features accelerated readout for continuous shooting up to 14fps7 with reduced blackout. This allows for decisive moments of subjects in motion to be captured entirely, without missing even a little action.

Enhanced operability

Rings for focus, zoom and aperture around the lens can be smoothly operated. For convenient shooting, you can turn Aperture Click Switch on for stepwise clicks of assurance, or off for a quiet, smooth feel when setting the aperture.

Professional dust/moisture resistant8 magnesium-alloy body

Combined with dust- and moisture-resistant design8, the use of highly rigid magnesium alloy material for the top cover, front cover, and main chassis makes the body solid yet light, ensuring heavy-duty performance in various tough situations.

Bright XGA OLED Tru-Finer electronic viewfinder

View every scene in rich detail with the bright XGA OLED Tru-Finer electronic viewfinder (EVF) with high resolution equivalent to approx. 2,359k-dots. The viewfinder faithfully displays what will appear in your recording, including the effects of your camera settings, so you can accurately frame your image, focus and monitor the results. The ZEISS® T* coating enhances clarity and reduces flare and reflection in the eyepiece optics.

Large multi-angle 3 Xtra Fine LCD display

Frame your images easily with a large 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. 107° and down approx. 42°. 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.

Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with 4.5-stop faster shutter effect9

Optical image stabilization technology developed exclusively by Sony is valuable for hand-held still and movie shooting, especially in low light or at the ultra-telephoto end of the zoom range up to 600mm (35mm equivalent). This system is equivalent to a 4.5-stop*-faster shutter speed, and prevents camera blur to ensure smooth, stable framing and shooting.9CIPA-standard, pitch/yaw directions, at 600mm focal length (tele-end).

Macro shooting as close as 1.18" from the subject

The RX10 III's advanced macro shooting capability lets you take great shots as close as 1.18" at 0.42x magnification (at the wide end) or 28.35" at 0.49x (at the tele end). Optical mage stabilization technology is valuable for hand-held still and movie shooting, especially in low light or at the ultra-telephoto end of magnification away from the subject. Camera focus can also be set from infinity to close-up without having to switch to macro mode.

Photo capture from 4K and 17MP dual record while shooting movie

The new Exmor RS® sensor's heightened processing speed enables the RX10 III to select a decisive moment from a movie recording and save it as a picture, in the form of a highly detailed 8-megapixel still image file from a 4K movie. From Full HD footage, you can create a 2-egapixel still image file or use dual record9 to capture high-precision still images up to 17MP while recording a movie.

Enhanced pro-video functions and NTCS/ PAL switchable

The RX10 III includes professional movie functions such as; Picture Profile, S-Log2/S-Gamut, TC/UB (time code / user bit), Rec Control, Dual Video Recording, marker display function, etc. that have typically been available only in professional-use camcorders. You also have the choice of region setting between NTSC and PAL movie frame rates.

HDMI® clear output for uncompressed video recording

Clean, uncompressed digital movie signal output can be transferred to an external monitor/recorder connected to the RX10 III via the HDMI® terminal. The RX10 III can record video simultaneously to internal media and uncompressed video to the external recorder in real time.

Zoom Assist10

If you lose track of the subject during framing, pressing a custom button to activate this function triggers an automatic zoom-out to help in finding the subject again quickly, especially when framing a shot with the ultratelephoto end of the lens.
