Sony RX100 III

 

The best premium compact camera just got better

Excellent image quality ; Great dynamic range ; Pocketable size

No hot shoe ; No touchscreen ; No 4K video

This means you can’t attach a flash or an external microphone for audio capture with video. It’s a shame, but having used the camera for a good while, we think it’s a fair compromise. And if you must have a hot shoe, the Sony RX100 II is still...

Sony Cyber-Shot RX100 III review

 

The first two RX100 models were fantastic, but three really is the magic number

Superb image and video quality ; Pocket-sized ; Great build and features

Pricy ; Short optical zoom range

The best small compact camera around? We think so

Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III review

 

If you want a pocketable high-end compact camera that offers it all, it looks as though Sony may have finally cracked it with the Cyber-shot RX100 III. This third-generation model delivers a large 1-inch sensor size, but rewrites the earlier RX100...

Built-in electronic viewfinder, truly pocketable size, super-fast 24-70mm (equivalent) lens, customisable lens ring control, great image quality, sturdy build, ND filter added

Autofocus ought to be more effective in all lighting, it’s crazy expensive, shorter focal length than predecessor, no touchscreen, small button controls

The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III adds key features that were absent in its predecessors and is the camera to shake up the high-end compact market one again. It's the benchmark pocketable camera to beat.

Sony RX100 III review

 

The best pocketable compact camera just got better

EVF built-in ; High quality sensor ; fast lens

Screen not touch-sensitive ; restricted zoom range ; Two step EVF activation

Unlike most pocket-sized compact cameras the RX100 III has a viewfinder. That, and the high-quality sensor and processing engine combination, should make it a popular choice with enthusiast photographers

  (Rating Hidden)

Sony's RX100 models sit firmly at the flagship end of the high-end compact market, claiming to offer some of the best photo quality you can get in a fixed-lens camera. At a staggeringly high price, you'd expect as much from new the RX100 III - which...

Sony RX100 Mark III: Amazing Point-and-Shoot Comes at Hefty Cost [REVIEW]

 

The Sony RX100 Mark III is small, powerful and good-looking, but expensive.

Pop-out electronic viewfinder ; Incredible speed and image quality ; Screen flips 180 degrees up for selfies

Weak battery life ; Gets extremely warm when video recording ; High price

The Sony RX100 Mark III is an amazing point-and-shoot with great imaging performance and speed. The inclusion of a retractable electronic viewfinder only sweetens the entire package. As great as the RX100 Mark III is, it's a bit on the expensive side.
