Sony’s added a third version to its RX10 fixed-lens camera line-up.
The Mk III now boasts a new Zeiss 24-600mm (that’s 25x magnification) f2.4 – f4 lens, with a one-inch, 20 megapixel “stacked” CMOS sensor.
4K recording is on offer in Sony’s XAVC-S format, with S-Log gamma functions and no “pixel binning”. There’s also ultra slow-motion recording at up to 1000 fps (PAL format) / 960 (NTSC)
Auto focus time is rated by Sony at 0.09 seconds and stabilisation is optical.
Usefully for video makers (and prior models have been used extensively for video), three lens rings are included just like on a camcorder.
It’s not cheap though, coming in around €1600 in Europe; probably much the same in USD.
