The Sony RX Cameras Produce Higher-Resolution 240p Video than the Sony a7s iii
1

The Sony RX100 V, VI, VII and the ZV-1 can shoot 240 fps videos at a resolution of 1824x1026, almost FullHD. The resolution of the 240 fps video from the Sony a7s III is 1408x804. That is over 65% higher resolution for the RX cameras. Full-frame has its disadvantages!

Yes, the RX cameras use buffer mode, while the a7s iii can record at 240 fps continuously. But slow motion at that high a frame rate only needs short clips. For example: a 240 fps clip at 4 seconds (the buffer limit at high quality in the RX cameras) results in a 40-second clip at 24 fps. Nobody wants to watch 40 seconds of anything.

The RX cameras produce among the best 240p video of any camera. With a long lens, you can produce (perhaps) interesting slow-motion video. Here is an example (1/10th speed), using the RX100 VII (no 40-second clips!):

Another example, from the ZV-1:
