Our take on the Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-RX100M3

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100M3 in action

The Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-RX100M3 makes close-up photography a breeze, with Macro mode and a tilting viewscreen.

Big-time performance in a compact camera

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100M3 is the rare camera that performs at a very high level, but still fits easily in the palm of your hand. The camera's 1-inch back-illuminated CMOS sensor offers excellent low-light sensitivity with minimal noise. And its high-tech Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens can produce excellent images even in difficult shooting environments. Expect sharp focus and vibrant colors from your photos, under sunny or cloudy skies.

Versatile enough for any occasion

It's not just the large sensor that enables the RX100M3 to capture gorgeous shots in low light. The Zeiss lens' fast f/1.8 aperture value at full wide angle gives you superior light-gathering ability that really comes in handy if you're shooting in super-fast continuous mode (up to 10 frames per second at full resolution). The camera's 2.9X optical zoom range offers shooting versatility for more distant subjects. An assignable manual control ring around the lens features 5-step zoom, so you can dial in those subjects more quickly.

Built-in Wi-Fi

Sony built wireless technology into the RX100M3, so it's easy to share your photos with the world. Wi-Fi lets you transfer photos from the camera wirelessly to your compatible smartphone using Sony's free PlayMemories app for Apple® and Android™ devices. The app also offers remote control of the camera's shutter, so you can snap a shot using your smartphone — great for shooting group shots using a tripod. If you have an NFC-compatible Android smartphone, simply touch it to the RX100M3 for instant pairing and transfer of photos.

    Recording Features

    Tiltable 3" LCD Screen: The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100M3 digital camera has a 3.0" Xtra Fine LCD screen with 1,228,800 dots. The LCD brightness control can be set to Auto, Manual (-2 to +2), or Sunny Weather (appropriate for shooting outdoors). You can tilt the LCD upward approximately 180° for shooting low angles and self-portraits, and downward approximately 45° for high angles.

    OLED Viewfinder: In addition to the 3" LCD screen, the camera is equipped with a 0.39" SVGA electronic OLED viewfinder with 1,440,000 dots. It pops up from the top panel for those occasions when you want an eye-level viewfinder, and can be pressed down and out of the way when you want to use the LCD screen. The viewfinder has a -4.0 to +3.0m-1 diopter adjustment to adjust it to your eyesight.

    Recording Media: The camera is compatible with the following recording media: Memory Stick Duo (still images only), Memory Stick PRO Duo (Mark 2 only for movie recording), Memory Stick Pro-HG Duo, SD, SDHC, and SDXC memory cards (Class 10 or higher).

    Image Recording Formats: The camera records still images in JPEG (with Extra Fine, Fine, and Standard compression), RAW (unprocessed), and JPEG+RAW formats (images from both formats created at the same time). Moving images can be recorded in XAVC S (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 with 2-channel LPCM audio), AVCHD Ver. 2.0 format (MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 with Dolby Digital 2ch audio) or MP4 (MPEG-4/H.264 with 2-channel AAC audio).

    Note: XAVC S movies are recorded at a bit rate of approximately 50 Mbps to give you a more vivid movie compared to AVCHD with increased amounts of information. You can record at normal speed (1920 x 1080) at 60p, 30p, or 24p, and at high speed (1280 x 720) at 120p or 100p.

    Image Sensor: For optimal image quality, the camera uses a large 13.2 x 8.8mm (1") color Exmor R CMOS image sensor with approximately 20.9-million total pixels and 20.2-million effective pixels and a 3:2 aspect ratio.

    Lens: The camera is equipped with a bright Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* (T-star) 2.9x zoom lens. It has a focal length of 24-70mm (35mm equivalent) for recording still images, 25.5-74mm for recording 16:9 movies, and 31-90mm for 4:3 movies (when SteadyShot is set to Standard). The aperture range is F1.8-11.0 (W) and F2.8-11.0 (T).

    Clear Image/Digital Zoom: In addition to the 3.6x optical zoom, you can reach higher zoom scales by engaging the Clear Image Zoom or the Digital Zoom, or both. The amount of zoom depends upon the image size as follows:

    M: 10M 2.9x 8.2x 16x
    S: 5M 2.9x 11x 23x
    VGA 2.9x 44x 44x
    Movie 2.9x 5.8x 11x

    Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode: Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode can provide blur-free movies, even while walking. Camera-shake compensation using Optical SteadyShot/Active Mode has been improved with the addition of new electronic image stabilization. This makes it easier to obtain sharp movies, even when zooming in unsteady situations.

    BEST POCKET CAMERA EVER OWNED

    Written By LUKE, ELLICOTT CITY, MD on Monday, September 15, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    After reviewing many compact pocket, point and shoot camera reviews, I have decided to purchase SONY CYBER SHOT RX100M3. I have no regrets so far. The price can be intimidating, but after looking at picture quality, ease of operation, glad I purchased it.
    Pros:
    Picture quality is amazing. Easy operation. Built small to fit into your pocket. Love the view finder.
    Cons:
    This is very small camera, so gripping portion can be awkward when taking pictures. Be advised for person with big hands. prices can use little improvement.

    Fab Camera, a little delicate

    Written By AL, New York,, NY on Tuesday, July 08, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This camera takes the most amazing pictures you'll find in a package this small.

    I am an intermediate level photographer, and I find that the options for tailoring you picture are great. The camera has easy 'intelligent auto' shooting as well as 'scene' (low light, etc.) shooting in addition to the M,A,S,P priority modes. For the digital realm, this camera has great smartphone/device connectivity. I really like the function that you can stream the camera's image to you cell phone and 'shoot' from your cell phone. It makes group photos VERY easy -- and the photographer gets to be in the picture, too. You can download apps to give your photos that retro-finish, or to directly upload to Flickr. The flip-out/up function of the lcd is very handy for taking selfies or for taking a shot off the ground. For sunny conditions, there is a pop-up viewfinder that is very easy to use. The camera is surprisingly responsive and quick to record images and focus, so without really even planning well, you can get some fabulous shots. The camera is small in size, but is pretty heavy. Parts of it feel delicate -- like the little pop-up flash. The screen is very 'soft', so you should get a screen cover.
    Pros:
    Stunning pictures Smart phone interface Compact size
    Cons:
    A little delicate
