Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX10 III offers 4K movie recording : The Sony RX10 III records video in 4K quality at a high bit rate in the highly efficient XAVC S format with full pixel readout and no pixel binning. This means that it captures approximately 1.7x more information than is required for 4K movie output and this oversampling effect enhances image detail as it minimises moiré and jaggies. The newly developed lens means that the Cyber-Shot camera can shoot high-quality 4K movies between 24-600mm, enabling huge flexibility in the types of shooting situations that can be captured. The 20.1 megapixel 1.0-type stacked image sensor and BIONZ X processor ensures the best image quality throughout the whole focal range, whether shooting images or 4k movies.

Furthermore, the inclusion of a high-speed front-end LSI assists the BIONZ X high-speed image processing engine in significantly reducing the rolling shutter phenomenon that can often distort how fast-moving subjects appear in 4K movies. To enable compatibility with a professional video workflow, the Sony Cyber-Shot RX10 III digital camera supports a variety of movie functions that are typically found on professional video cameras. The photography functions include Picture Profile, S-Gamut/S-Log2, Gamma Display Assist, enhanced Zebra function, clean HDMI output, TC/UB, REC Control, Dual REC, and Marker function.
4K movies with high speed autofocus
The Sony Cyber-Shot RX10 III camera also features a Fast Intelligent AF system that has attracted praise amongst RX10 II and RX100 IV users, with the spatial object detection algorithm fully optimised for the Sony RX10 III. This allows the camera to predict the point of focus by detecting the subject even before the shutter button is pressed halfway. Once the shutter button is pressed halfway down, the camera focuses on the subject without delay, delivering a very smooth AF performance in just 0.09 seconds.
Sony LCJ-RXJ soft carrying case
The Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX10 III features a number of other upgrades compared to the current RX10 camera series. These include triple lens rings for focus, zoom and aperture, each operable on the side of the lens for smooth operation. The handgrip shape has been optimised for the new high-magnification large-aperture lens, particularly to enhance grip security when holding the camera at eye level. A new Focus Hold button on the lens barrel allows the focus distance to be locked when it pressed and can also be assigned as a custom function button. A new soft carrying case, (Sony LCJ-RXJ), will also be available for the new Sony camera.
