No subject is too far

Sony’s built quite the inventory of cameras this year, and it’s not done yet. The Japanese giant has just unveiled their RX10 III, a camera that has a 600mm lens. That’s pretty impressive – what’s even impressive is that the lens itself is a Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T that goes from 26mm to 600mm with an aperture of f/2.4 to f/4.


That’s impressive in of itself, but Sony’s also thrown in a 20.1-megapixel, 1-inch type stacked sensor, an ISO range of 64 to 12,800 and a Bionz X processor. That gives the camera tha ability to shoot in 4K video, as well as slow motion video at 960, 480 and 240 FPS. The new camera is also capable of shooting continously at 14FPS with minimal blackout, and has shutter speeds as fast as 1/32000 of a second.

That performance won’t come cheap – Sony’s pegging the price of the RX10 III at $1000 in the US, which is roughly 46.2K here without taxes and duties.
