20.1 MP 1-inch Exmor R Sensor

Featuring a large 1.0? Exmor R CMOS image sensor. The back-illuminated technology doubles light sensitivity and combines with Sony?s Column A/D Conversion to reduce noise levels ? a great help when photographing in dimly lit environments. Markedly reduced noise is evident even when high-sensitivity settings are used for capturing night landscapes or indoor scenes.

Bright F1.8 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens (24-70mm)

The DSC-RX100 III sports an all new bright F1.8-2.8 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens with 24-70mm zoom. The lens is perfect for portraits and macro shots with beautiful defocused - bokeh backgrounds. A premium multi-layered T* coating also dramatically reduces ghost and flare caused by light reflection.

Built-in SVGA OLED viewfinder w/ZEISS T* coating

View every scene in rich detail with the bright and retractable SVGA OLED Tru-Finder, which features. The viewfinder faithfully displays what will appear in your recording, including the effects of your camera settings, so you can accurately monitor the results. The ZEISS T* coating enhances clarity and reduces flare and reflection in the eyepiece optics.

Selfie-ready multi-angle 3" Xtra Fine LCD display

Selfies have never been easier with a beautiful 3? (1,229k dots) Xtra Fine LCD Display that rotates in multiple angles. This also makes it easy to photograph over crowds or low to capture pets eye to eye by swinging up and down approx. 180?. Easily scroll through menus and preview life thanks to WhiteMagic technology that dramatically increases visibility in bright daylight. The large display delivers brilliant-quality still images and movies while enabling easy focusing operation.

Versatile shooting w/ XAVC S2, AVCHD and MP4 codes

The DSC-RX100 III records HD movies1 in the XAVC S2 format, which uses MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 for video compression and linear PCM for audio compression, while saving files in a MP4 wrapper. The highly compressed files allow extensive record times. With 50Mbps Full HD (1920x1080) 60p high quality video recording, XAVC S2 enables beautiful video recording with minimal compression noise even in scenes with a lot of movement. Linear PCM is adopted for audio compression. The camera also records in AVCHD, ideal for quality video for HDTV and Blu-ray Disc burning. Additionally, users can shoot the easily shareable MP4 HD video, ideal for web.

Built-in ND filter for wider-ranging photographic expression

Realize a wider range of photographic expression with built-in 1/8 (3 EV steps) ND filter that allows exposure adjustment in bright scenes.

HDMI clear output for uncompressed video recordings

Clear, uncompressed digital movie signal output can be transferred to an external monitor/recorder (connected via the HDMIterminal) simultaneously in real time from the RX100 III3. The shooting info display can be turned off for even cleaner views of such movies on an external monitor/recorder. Frame rates include 24p, 60p and 60i.

Comfortable control ring for manual operation

A unique control ring around the lens works in combination with an intuitive, displayed user interface for meticulous SLR-type control over settings that satisfies even the most fastidious users. The control ring can be assigned to adjust various features (at various values) from basics like zooming and aperture to creative functions like Picture Effect. Moreover, it turns smoothly and seamlessly, allowing quiet, click-free usage while shooting movies including a new step-zoom function that enables instant selection of commonly used focal lengths.

Simple connectivity to smartphones via Wi-Fi w/ NFC

Connectivity with smartphones for One-touch sharing/One-touch remote has been simplified with Wi-Fi/NFC control. In addition to Wi-Fi support for connecting to smartphones, the DSC-RX100 III also supports NFC (near field communication) - - providing ?touch connection? convenience when transferring images to compatible Android smartphones and tablets. Users need only touch devices to connect; no complex set-up is required. Moreover, when using Smart Remote Control ? a feature that allows shutter release to be controlled by a smartphone ? connection between DSC-RX100 III and the smartphone can be established by simply touching devices.

Pros: I got this camera for $480 (with a 20% discount code), it's like getting this camera for half price. Buying from is such a pleasant experience. I'm very happy with this camera, it is hands down the best point-and-shoot as of 2015 (and a few more years to come). Love the flip-up LCD display for selfies....Read the reviews for this camera and you will know what I'm talking about. Thanks Buydig.
Cons: No con really. I got a fantastic camera at a really great price.
