Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III Digital Camera Video Creator Kit

Overview

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III Video Creator Kit is a large 20.1 megapixel 1" Exmor R CMOS sensor compact point-and-shoot camera to produce high resolution still imagery and full HD 1080i/p video. The back-illuminated technology doubles light sensitivity to an expandable ISO 12800 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. Benefitting the performance of this sensor is the BIONZ image processor, which helps to produce images with smooth quality and gradations. Full-resolution continuous shooting up to 10 fps is possible as well as a quick autofocus speed of just 0.13 seconds.

The DSC-RX100 III sports an all new bright f/1.8-2.8 Carl Zeiss(r) 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. Optical SteadyShot image stabilization is also available to help minimize the appearance of camera shake when working in dimly-lit conditions and with greater zoom magnifications. The lens also features a Carl Zeiss T anti-reflective coating, which helps to reduce surface reflections, lens flare, and ghosting in order to produce imagery that is rich in contrast and clarity.

View every scene in rich detail with the bright and retractable SVGA OLED Tru-Finder. The viewfinder faithfully displays what will appear in your recording, including the effects of your camera settings, so you can accurately monitor the results. Selfies have never been easier with a beautiful 3" (1,229k dots) Xtra Fine(tm) 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(tm) technology that dramatically increases visibility in bright daylight. The large display delivers brilliant-quality still images and movies while enabling easy focusing operation. The DSC-RX100 III records HD movies in the XAVC S 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 S 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(tm) burning. Additionally, users can shoot the easily shareable MP4 HD video, ideal for web. Realize a wider range of photographic expression with built-in 1/8 (3 EV steps) ND filter that allows exposure adjustment in bright scenes. Clear, uncompressed digital movie signal output can be transferred to an external monitor/recorder (connected via the HDMI(r) terminal) simultaneously in real time from the RX100 III. 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. 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.

Connectivity with smartphones for One-touch sharing/One-touch remote has been simplified with Wi-Fi(r)/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(tm) 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. Personalize your camera by adding new features of your choice with PlayMemories Find apps to fit your shooting style from portraits, detailed close-ups, sports, time lapse, motion shot and much more. Use apps that shoot, share and save photos using Wi-Fi(r) that make it easy to control and view your camera from smartphone, and post photos directly to Facebook or backup images to the cloud without connecting to a computer.
