New wide-aperture high-magnification 24-600mm 25x zoom lens
Fixed-lens design optimizes image quality
1.0-type stacked CMOS sensor
High-precision 4K movies with wider range
Superior corner-to-corner image sharpness across the zoom range
Outstanding macro shooting even way up close
Optical SteadyShot equivalent to 4.5-step faster shutter
Now, nothing is beyond reach - With vast zoom range out to 600 mm, efficient 1.0-type image sensor, large-aperture lens, and much more at your command, it's easy to capture more captivating stills and movies from every perspective.
Expression unlimited - Large-aperture, high-magnification zoom extends expressive potential
Together, a large-aperture 24?600 mm1 F2.4-4 optical 25x zoom lens and 1.0-type stacked CMOS sensor make subjects stand out beautifully, even when shot in extreme close-up. Extended zoom, blazing speed, and complete silence create a new shooting experience.
Shoot to new 24-600 mm F2.4-4 extremes - More stunning images throughout a wider range
The 24-600 mm1 F2.4-4 25x zoom lens covers a range from wide-open vistas to extra-close-up action and sets subjects apart from surroundings with beautiful bokeh.
Elements of exceptional imaging - Superior corner-to-corner image sharpness across the zoom range
Eight ED glass elements, including two ED aspherical and one Super ED glass element, make the large-aperture lens unit as compact as possible and achieve stunning image quality up to ultra-telephoto range.
Take sharper close-ups to more stunning effect - Outstanding macro shooting even way up close
The RX10III lets you shoot a subject as close as a mere 1.2" (wide end) or 28.3" (telephoto end) away.
More stable, less shake - Optical SteadyShot, equivalent to 4.5-step faster shutter
Image stabilization compensates for camera shake when shooting handheld in the ultra-telephoto range or dim light. Otherwise, stable stills and movies are only possible at higher shutter speeds.
Fixed-lens design optimizes image quality
Fixed-lens design maintains high resolution from image center to edge because the positions of the lens and imaging plane are precisely adjusted to take full advantage of the superior sensor.
1.0-type stacked CMOS sensor - Excellent image quality and processing efficiency
Back-illuminated technology maximizes the extra-sensitive sensor's light collection capacity, while its efficiency-enhancing stacked-circuit structure minimizes processing time.
BIONZ X processing engine
The BIONZ X image processing engine handles large volumes of data from the sensor and reproduces texture and detail faithfully with minimal noise and diffraction.
High-precision 4K movies with wider range - Pure quality of full pixel readout and no pixel binning
With full-pixel readout without pixel binning, about 1.7 times as much data as is required for 4K movies is condensed then output as a 4K movie at extremely high resolution.
Shoot for higher quality in XAVC S3 format
Reveal fine details with less compression noise with XAVC S3 format high-bitrate 4K3 (up to 100 Mbps) and Full HD (up to 50 Mbps) recording.
Aim for more professional results - Advanced functions enhance workflow
For professional-style moviemaking, the RX10III supports Picture Profile, S-Gamut/S-Log, clean HDMI output, TC/UB, REC Control, Dual Rec, Marker, Gamma Display Assist, and enhanced Zebra functions.
Up to 40x slower than real time
Ultra-dramatic super slow motion up to ultra-telephoto - Capture more peak moments
Ultra-telephoto coverage up to 600 mm lets you record peak moments of difficult-to-approach subjects clearly in super slow motion, including athletes in action.
Split-second AF speed and precision
Fast Intelligent AF achieves 0.09-s, high-speed autofocus - Rapid, precise response to capture definitive moments
The RX10III uses Fast Intelligent AF, with high-speed, accurate subject detection. What's more, the lens and its controller are optimally matched to enhance speed of response.
The RX10III is designed for completely natural control in all situations, including setting lens rings, holding focus, viewing the brilliant XGA OLED Tru-Finder, and gripping and handling.
