These are the first images of the amazing new RX100M3 that will be announced on May 16 at 5am London time. I kindly invite you all to follow the announcement live here on SonyAlphaRumors!
As you can see the RX100M3 has a high-resolution built-in pop-up viewfinder. The camera costs 849 Euro or $899 Canadian Dollars. The amazing new features compared to its predecessors are:
1) Zeiss 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 lens which is wider and brighter than the previous Zeiss 28-100mm f/1.8-4.9 lens
2) 0.39″ SVGA electronic viewfinder pop-up OLED viewfinder with 1,440,000 dots.
3) Built-in ND filter
4) XAVC-S video recording just like the Sony A7s
Some people complained that the compact is very expensive but they do forget that an external viewfinder usually costs $200-300 (here at Amazon) and ont he RX100M3 it’s included and nicely hidden when you don’t need it. That way the camera remains truly compact!
The new camera is 2,5mm thicker than the RX100M2 (and 5mm thicker than the first generation RX100). Full specs can be read here: http://www.sonyalpharumors.com/sr5-rx100miii-priced-at-899-canadiad-us-dollars-full-specs-leaked/.
