Introduction

Try Sony RX 10 Mark III – Sony’s RX10 III is that the latest in its type of high-end premium bridge cameras. It is available lower than 12 months following the RX10 II was announced, but the corporate has said that both from the cameras will exist simultaneously, offering two different options to consumers.

The RX10 III uses an almost identical sensor towards the Mark II version, as like a 20. 1MP CMOS one-inch “stacked” sensor with DRAM chip. The Mark II would be a 20. 2MP version of a similar design. The most important new feature from the camera, and the most important talking point, is its new zoom lens, which offers a 24-600mm (25x ) equivalent focal length range, and also a maximum aperture of f / 2. 8-4.

Previously, the RX10 II offered a smaller 24-200mm (8. 3x ), so it helps make the new camera an infinitely more appealing all-rounder for all those attempting to find a camera to carry out everything. Nevertheless, you pay the value for this type of functionality, using the RX10 III having an asking price of £1, 249.

Other specifications include an electronic shutter which facilitates shutter speeds of as much as 1 / 32000, a 3-inch tilting 1. 23-million dot LCD screen, a 2. 36-million dot OLED viewfinder, SD memory card compatibility and also a better lifetime of as much as 420 shots per charge.

Image Quality

All the sample images during this review were taken by using the 20 megapixel JPEG setting, which provides a typical image scale around 5Mb.

Sony’s RX series cameras happen to be consistently good performers since the very first RX100, and happily the RX10 III isn‘t any different.

Directly coming from the camera, JPEG images show a crispness and clarity through the entire focal length – softening ever so slightly in the furthest reach from the lens, although not sufficient to be worrying. You ca also deploy “Clear Zoom”, a kind of digital zoom which yields some good results when the 25x optical zoom is not quite enough reach for you personally. The conventional digital zoom is best avoided unless absolutely necessary.

Colours will also be bright and punchy directly coming from the camera, displaying a very good level of vibrance that does not stray too far into unnatural territory. Corresponding raw files are a bit more muted, which will be expected and it is useful when focusing on your images in post production.

Noise performance and detail resolution are great in JPEG images almost entirely through the entire range. Noise begins to become noticeable from around ISO 1600, although not too detrimental to image quality unless you are pixel peeping at 100% or intending to print a really large image. ISO 3200 and ISO 6400 are decent performers, but just like most cameras, the highest setting of ISO 12800 is best avoided unless strictly necessary (or you simply intend to view or print very small ) as there is a big loss of detail. Taking a look at the corresponding raw files here it is clear to discover that there is a notable level of noise reduction applied, whenever you‘ve got photographed something with many fine detail, then you will get a number of this back by dealing with the raw files in post production.
