Sony today announced the RX10 III, the third evolution in this incredible bridge camera. It sports an all new 24-600mm f/2.4-4.0 equivalent zoom lens. A massive zoom length for a 1″ sensor camera.
The 25x super-telephoto zoom lens sits in front of Sony’s 1-inch, 20.1 megapixel Exmor RS CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processor, the same as what’s found in the RX10 II.
On the back of the dust- and moisture-resistant camera is a 2.36-million-dot OLED electronic viewfinder and a tilting 3-inch 1.228-million-dot LCD screen.
Other specs and features of the camera include an ISO range of 64 to 12800, 14 f.p.s, silent shooting 40x super slow motion at up to 960fps, 4K video recording, built-in Optical SteadyShot stabilisation, a minimum focusing distance of 2.36 feet (72cm), 0.49x max magnification at 600mm, pro video features (e.g. Picture Profile, S-Log2/S-Gamut, Gamma Display Assist, Time Code, external mic, headphone monitoring), an AF speed of 0.09s, and Wi-Fi/NFC connectivity.
