Hands-on with Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III

The RX10 III boasts a powerful video feature set, based around 4K capture which samples a 17MP chunk of the sensor at approximately 6K resolution and then down-scales to 4K. The camera can do this because the stacked CMOS architecture allows the image sensor to be read up to 5 times as fast as a non-stacked version. Video quality should be exactly the same as the RX10 II, which is to say it's very, very good. The additional zoom range, though, will make for some compelling 4K and slow-motion capture, and we'll be posting some samples as soon as we can. 

As we'd expect from a camera with such solid video credentials the RX10 III offers headphone and microphone sockets, as well as HDMI out and USB (2.0). This view also shows the tilting rear screen, folded out. As usual (sadly) for Sony, the screen is a magnet for finger prints and general crud, and isn't touch-sensitive.
