Japanese giant Sony has launched a new model in the RX named Sony Cyber Shot RX100 III.
The RX100 III has the same design concept like the RX100 II and hosts 20.2 megapixel camera with 1.0 type back illuminated CMOS sensor but offers a completely new lens and processor. The new lens is 24-70mm instead of the previous 28-100mm with a aperture range of F1.8-F2.8 rather than the F1.8-F4.9. With such a wide aperture the lens allows more light to pass through it with a lower shutter speed for blue-free and crisp images. The macro capabilities with the new lens are also improved with effective focus on subjects as close as 30cm. the camera also hosts a 3-stop 1/8 neutral density filter.
The camera hosts a new BIONZ X image processor which serves to be three times more powerful than the previous one. With this processor, the lens can effectively record video at higher bit-rate like 50Mbps and even allows dual-video recording as well at hgher bit rate in AVCHD or either XAVC format for editing and sharing and even lower bit rate in MP4 version.
The camera also includes a addition of pop-up electronic OLED view-finder. The new Sony Cyber Shot RX100 III has a ultimate display which tilts upwards and also can be used as self portraits to monitor yourself while recording a video. The device also hosts connectivity options like Wi-Fi and NFC at a price of $800.
