RX10 III and Sony RX10 II can also capture slow motion video at 240, 480 or 960fps.
Video shot with Sony RX10 II resolution 1,136×384 at 960fps:

Recording at the top frame rate gives the equivalent of 40x super slow motion. And while final video output in any of these High Frame Rate modes is 1080p, actual video resolution varies. When the camera is set to Quality Priority mode (which we used here), actual resolution is the following: 1,824×1,026 at 240fps, 1,676×566 at 480fps and 1,136×384 at 960fps.

The RX10 III’s sizable lens makes room for aperture, focus and zoom rings, as well as a focus hold button. The camera offers an XGA OLED EVF with 2.36 million dots, as well as a tilting LCD. The body is dust and moisture resistant. Sony claims that its SteadyShot stabilization system offers up to 4.5 stops of benefit.
