    Nice camera but be careful with SD card

    P.Verberne | 24 October 2014 | In the composition: Camera | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Good low noise photos
    • Device is really small.
    • Robust
    • No 60 FPS with SDHC only with SDXC

    Nice camera and nice and small. Very low noise photos
    It's a shame that Coolblue recommends the wrong SD cards with this camera.
    Coolblue says you can use SDHC cards.
    However, beware: If you want to make full use of the video recording functionality, you must have an SDXC card with at least 64 gig.
    Only then can you record at 60 frames per second.
    If you put an SDHC card in the camera, everything works, but you cannot select the best video mode in the camera. The camera will not allow this.
    Unfortunate. Coollbue just adjust content and put SDXC cards in the bundle offers.

    Almost DSLR quality

    Dirk Mossu | 21 September 2014 | In the composition: Camera | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Lens 24mm-70mm 1.8f-2.8f
    • Beautifully sharp photos in all lighting conditions
    • Evf built-in viewfinder works great
    • LCD screen very nice display
    • Plenty of possibilities!!!
    • Cost is expensive!! But worth every penny
    • Scratch-sensitive LCD screen
    • Slightly too aggressive noise reduction at high ISO values
    • When closed Evf switches off the camera completely!
    • Slightly too limited in zoom range (70mm will be too little for some people)

    Hi,
    Have had the Sony RX100MIII for a week now and have already been able to experiment with it ... I must say what a beautiful device it is to me. I already owned the first RX100 but have now switched to the MIII due to its multiple upgrades. The RX100MIII now has a different lens that is brighter than its predecessor, the only thing that is less, you have to lose the zoom range, but you now get a nice 24mm wide angle!
    I can be brief about the image quality, it takes incredibly beautiful sharp photos, plus the large sensor in combination with the bright lens creates a beautiful bokeh. He also takes stunningly beautiful photos in low-light situations... up to ISO 1600 the photo is as good as noise-free!!
    The new RX100MIII now also has a built-in evf and I must say this works perfectly and is very clear in use with all data processed, a real plus for determining your composition in very sunny situations.
    The LCD screen is also a very good screen that can now be tilted 180° for selfies etc... The only thing I do find, it is very sensitive to scratches. So best to stick an LCD protection on it.
    The lens itself is really the max...1.8f-2.8f 24mm-70mm zeiss really gives very nice pictures...okay the zoom range is not that far but you have to decide that for yourself and if I catch it I'll take it most photos on vacation are between that focal length... There is also a bright zoom on so you can zoom in a little further with very little loss of image quality.
    What the controls and possibilities are...is huge you can set everything yourself and there are 1001 suggested programs that work really well.
    The RX100MIII also takes nice Jpegs in Auto mode but in RAW it is unbeatable.
    You also have WiFi on board and an internal flash that you can aim at the ceiling to bounce, which is a real plus!
    As lesser features I would say the cost, although it is worth every penny, the grip is also not that good so you better order an AGR2 grip so that problem is solved. Make sure you take the AGR2 grip and not the AGR1 grip.
    I also find a small disadvantage if you use the evf and you want to switch it off again, then the whole device switches itself off and I think that should not be allowed.
    Also the LCD screen is beautiful but as said very fragile for scratches!!!
    In short, I can definitely recommend this RX100MIII to everyone, it really is one of the best compacts in its series at the moment!

    Awesome, I've been waiting for this

    • Super sharp image
    • Beautiful colours
    • Nice picture even in the dark

    I had an EOS 400 first, then the EOS 700, didn't always get the photos I needed. I just need to be able to take a good, beautiful photo in 1x, which is sharp and colorful. I have just returned from Northern Norway Lofoten and have taken beautiful pictures (without setting anything) and even photographed the Northern Lights from the loose wrist. I am very happy with it and give this Sony RX 100 III a big 10!

    special and better than expected
    • compact
    • fast
    • clear
    • possibilities
    • manipulation is millimeter work

    ideal for travel, tiny device with mega capabilities
    you can immediately start with the fully automatic recordings and gradually you can get to know the device better and also switch more to manual settings.
    a real magic lantern.
    in short, Ideal!

    Great results from a device that fits in your pocket.
    • photo quality
    • Compact
    • Boot Speed
    • lens ring
    • Solidly built
    • Exit speed.
    • Lens protection sticks
    • Folding screen is a bit too loose

    For such a compact device, this device delivers excellent results. The viewfinder is a fantastic addition to the previous model. This device gives you complete control over your photos, but also allows you to shoot lazy on automatic and still get great results. The lens ring is a joy to work with. The device feels very strong. With an SDHC card of 30Mb/s, I find that it sometimes takes a bit of time before the device is switched off when it still has to save photos. I've had a few times when the lens cover got stuck half way on startup, so I got pictures with a black corner at the bottom left and top right. Hopefully this problem will resolve itself by using the camera frequently. The folding screen is handy, but I don't think it clicks firmly enough at the bottom.

    Wonderful device! Exceeds expectations

    We are not yet fully exploited all possibilities, but we are already very enthusiastic!
    Huge sharpness and photos show the moments in a unique way

    The Sony rx100m3 is a great device. I am especially impressed with the lens. Particularly light-sensitive and razor-sharp. The EVF works well and is indispensable in bright lighting conditions. There is nothing missing from this device. The price is decent, but definitely matches what you get.

    Incredibly great device with unprecedented possibilities.

    I am amazed that there are so many possibilities in such a small device.
    Great clear photos, you only really see this when you enlarge a photo.
    Simple to operate, or user-friendly software. he takes quick shots in succession, almost no waiting for the next shot.
    I'm glad I bought this one. it is compact which is immediately a disadvantage for my large hands.
    But: I don't want to lose it anymore, if I lose it, my wife or daughter has it in use.
    So hide that thing. haha.

    Good “compact” camera. With great image.
    • Quality of the photos
    • Format
    • Battery life
    • Not yet found

    Now in use for a few days on holiday and taking photos in full swing. What strikes me is the battery life. With intensive photography I can go on the road for 2 days (+/- 60 photos day)

    Pocket camera at the level of a DSLR!
    • Very solidly built
    • good lens
    • Electronic viewfinder
    • Top results even in low light
    • To the heavy side (explained by the aluminum body)
    • Turns off after closing viewfinder

    Because walking around with a DSLR for a long time does weigh on me, I went looking for a worthy alternative in the form of a pocket camera. I certainly found this with the RX100III!
    This camera is simply top notch and has everything you need: a decent sensor, good lens, tiltable screen, plenty of options for manual settings, not to mention the viewfinder! The latter is of an incredible quality and is indispensable with a lot of (day) light.
    Very important is of course the quality of the photos and it is beautiful. Even in low light you get a very nice and therefore still usable grain.
    The device does cost a bit, but if you don't want to compromise on quality and still want something compact, then this is your device.
