Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 III

Announced Mar 29, 2016 •
20 megapixels | 3 screen | 24 – 600 mm (25×)

I enjoyed owning this camera for two years, and took it on the road many times.  It's the best travel camera for me because I am tired of changing lenses and lugging around many pounds of equipment.  The photos are beautiful.  My only problem was the slower focus.  It fished around a bit looking for the object and sometimes hit on the wrong one.  But, that was a small price to pay for the nice photos and great convenience.

I gently dispute that this is a "Compact Camera;" it's a very substantial double handful and will not fit in any pocket I've seen. But after 6 weeks of heavy usage, from shooting micro photos with an auxiliary lens to dim available light opera to wildlife including flying birds at night by the reflected light off clouds, I'm blown away. The lens is the single most remarkable feature of course, but it couldn't work without a superb mechanism, from sensor to image stabilization to palpable ...

I took my RX10III to a session of photos of a nice hill, using a tripod. I had set ISO=100 for the entire session and shot RAW. When I came back home and opened it with Win10 default Photos, it looked terrible, as if the photos were taken with a 2MP sensor and not 20MP. Luckily, all the missing details showed up once I switched to a different viewer. So I switched to Picasa, and it did great with the details, but sometimes it did terribly with the colors. Blue sky were turned into light gray. ...

First the Rx10 came home. Then the v2 and while the ink on the receipt was drying I bought a V3 (couldn't pass on a great open box deal). Good thing was that all of the models I purchased overlapped so I wound up making a bit of cash on each upgrade and really cut down my end cost on the V3, The move to the RX was an attempt to lighten my bag as I was carting around an a77V2 body, 30mm, 11-16, 18-250, 175-500 APO plus an A6000 with la-ea2 mount. The RX10V3 allowed me to shed the A6000, la-ea2 ...

Here is my experience with my RX10M3 and two "official" Sony NP-FW50 batteries, the one that came packed with the camera and a Sony NP-FW50 spare I purchased, all from Amazon. Starting from a fresh fully charged battery, shoot until the battery indicator reads 96%, turn the camera off in shot mode. Put camera on shelf overnight (8 hours) and the next morning the battery indicator reads 78% when the camera is turned back on. Now shoot some images and turn the camera off, but immediately ...

I purchased this camera after having used a Sony RX100 IV because of the appeal of having a zoom range that would cover all my needs. The lens quality is excellent, and and the image stabilization is impressive at long zoom settings. The first day, I just pointed it overhead at the moon an hour before sunset (and only hit AutoLevels in Photoshop to darken the background) and got this result: Moon during daylight hours with RX10 III at 600mm equiv. setting, 1/250 at F4 As an astronomer, I have ...

I've had the RX10iii for around 3 months - and it is taking over 90% of my images. My D750 is gathering dust and my E-M10 has only been used twice this summer and has now been traded in (trying Fuji X, whic may eventually replace the D750). The RX10iii is turning into a problem camera for me - I feel it is making me lazy. Pick it up in a small bag and it is ready for anything (mostly). The sharpness of the lens - at all FLs - is excellent, the camera is responsive, a bit slow to turn on, but ...

Just want to put up some observations and samples from my Sony DSC RX10 III. First off, I was really put off that a standalone battery charger and a decent manual isn’t included. I rented a Panasonic FZ1000 for two weeks while I was vacationing, so I had a lot of experience with it. I mention this just to quantify any remarks that I make relating to the two cameras. You can see a gallery of pics that I shot with the RX10 III here. http://franksphotos.smugmug.com/Sony-DSC-RX10-III-sample All ...

This is my seventh Sony digital camera (Sony Alpha 55/65/99/77ii) and my third RX model (after owning and loving both the RX1 & RX100III). So you could say I’m biased, or alternatively, pretty comfortable with Sony products and operating systems. There is little question that Sony is at the head of the class in designing sensors for digital cameras, and they lead if not dominate the market, all the way from cell phones to medium format and virtually everything in between. On the other hand, ...
