RX10 III

  • 20.1 MP (effective) 1.0"-type Exmor RS® CMOS sensor
  • The first 25x optical zoom lens in a RX series camera features 24–600 mm extra-wide-angle to ultra-telephoto zoom range in a bright F2.4–4 lens
  • Record 4K movies with full pixel readout and no pixel binning, for the ultimate image resolution with less moiré and jaggies.
  • BIONZ X for superior detail and texture
  • Super slow motion up to ultra-telephoto
  • High-speed readout of the image sensor’s approximately 20.1 effective megapixels of imaging data makes continuous shooting at rates up to about 14fps possible with reduced blackout
  • Along with great zoom coverage up to 600 mm, the RX10 III features 0.09 s high-speed AF.
