    Compact and utterly precise

    This Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III High Performance Compact Digital Camera is small enough to fit in your pocket, but lets you capture every moment with the utmost clarity. Frame your scenes perfectly with the OLED electronic viewfinder, paired with a high-resolution LCD display and ZEISS T coating.

    You'll capture intricate detail and rich colours thanks to a wide-angle ZEISS Vario-Sonnar lens with a large f/1.8 maximum aperture. Whether you're going for wide-angle architectural shots, intimate portraits or subjects in motion, this lens will help you achieve the results you want.

    BIONZ X image processing helps to bring out every texture in your photos, even when you're shooting fast-moving subjects.

    Get the shot you're after

    With its 3” TFT LCD screen, your Sony RX100III is extremely versatile – tilt the display upward through a full 180 degrees, down to 45 degrees and even twist to grab easy selfies or to capture images from difficult angles and unique perspectives. Shoot comfortably over crowds or from very low vantage points.

    The OLED Tru-Finder offers a bright view on every subject with a hi-res SVGA EL screen – image clarity extends to the very edges of the frame to counteract blurring, allowing you to compose your photos more accurately.

    ZEISS T is a proprietary technology that minimises flare and reflection in the viewfinder – even when you're shooting in bright sunlight. An eye sensor enables you to immediately shift between the viewfinder and LCD screen so that you can really fine tune each composition. You can even retract the viewfinder into the camera body to preserve its streamlined design.

    More lens, more photo

    The DSC-RX100M3 lets you shoot both closer and wider with its 8.8-25.7 mm lens which is the equivalent to a 24-70 mm lens on a 35 mm system. Capture everything from expansive scenery portraits with this versatile optic.

    Thanks to its f/1.8-f/2.8 aperture range, you'll be able to capture beautifully detailed photographs in all lighting conditions – even if it's dark. Achieve stunning depth of field effects and even try your hand at creative blurring techniques.

    Contrast is kept high through a design incorporating nine aspherical lenes that include exclusive glass-moulded lens elements. Even when you're zooming, distortion is kept at bay. Each image offers exceptional edge-to-edge quality without adding unnecessary bulk to the camera.

    Advanced image processing

    Every frame will look more real with BIONZ X image processing technology, which delivers superior image resolution and lifelike texture rendering, whether you're taking still images or shooting Full HD videos.

    Its sophisticated detail reproduction technology reduces emphasized outlines so that images stay natural looking and finely-detailed. Clarity is enhanced via intelligent noise reduction, even when shooting in dim conditions. Blurring is offset by diffraction-reducing systems to maintain excellent photo detail, even when you're shooting at deep focus levels.

    Complete range of camera connections

    The Sony RX100 III offers built-in WiFi so that you can easily access a wireless network to share your photos online or save them to cloud services.

    NFC (Near Field Communication) lets you establish a direct connection with NFC-enabled wireless devices such as smartphones and tablets, so that you can transfer your images with one-touch, hasslefree pairing.

    There are also micro and high-speed USB ports, a micro HDMI port for connection to an HD TV and a media card slot that accepts a wide range of media cards to make storing and transferring your photos as simple and flexible as possible.
