Sony RX100III Test Shots

Today I finally decided to purchase the Sony RX100III after some encouragement, given that there was a 10% off sale happening at a store recommended by Sebastian. I decided on it over the Canon G16 and Canon G7X for a number of reasons, but the largest part I have to admit was the EVF.

I can’t talk about the technical aspects without looking rather lost and staring blankly so let’s just say it’s got a 24-70mm f1.8-2.8 with a 1-inch sensor which were major deciding factors as well and I’ll leave it at that. The whole camera just looks nice and it’s slim, so it’s comfortable enough to stow away in your pocket unlike a DSLR.

Apparently a downside is you lose zoom, but I hardly ever use zoom anyway so I’m not bothered about that at this point. I have bumped into some other downsides mentioned in a few reviews already, and while I think I should have purchased a second battery due to the warnings about its ‘short battery life’, I’ll see how it goes for now. Ditto goes for its lack of ‘grip’.

Anyway, let’s take a look at some of the test shots I took during the day, in various locations and distances, and various light.

So far I’m liking it though these were pretty quick shots and there’s a lot of the camera I still don’t know how to use yet. Nothing special subject-wise or technique-wise, but it gave me results that I’m happy with, and that’s what counts.

I’m glad to have a camera to call my own and I suppose it will be my new pocket companion in the next few weeks. None of the above were edited because that’s just how I roll (also I’m particularly lazy), feel free to click on the links below to see the slightly larger versions because of the particular setup of images on this blog which I’ll improve on in the future. Warning: it’ll take you away from this post.
