The LX10 features the brightest (fastest) lens of the group—a 24–72mm equivalent f/1.4–2.8 zoom lens. Topside, the brightness of the lens, even at full zoom, is an awesome tool for bokeh and capturing fast subjects. There are also several unique photo modes available on the LX10: Post Focus, 4K Photo and Burst. The LX10 offers both 4K/30p and 1080/120p for ultra-high resolution and high-speed (slow-motion) video recording, respectively.

Sony RX100 Isotta underwater camera
Sony RX-100 iii in Isotta housing

​Sony is using a new 24-70mm equivalent F1.8-2.8 lens, which is both faster and wider than what was on its predecessors, though at the expense of telephoto power. When you combine its fast lens and larger-than-average sensor size, the RX100 III promises stronger low light performance and shallower depth-of-field at the telephoto end than most other enthusiast compacts.

The housing for Sony Cyber-shot RX100 Mark III allows you to capitalize on the camera's full potential and to capture pictures underwater. Easy access to all key/main camera controls by means of clearly labeled laser-engraved long lasting buttons. An easy and quick release camera mounting plate allows the camera positioning; the back door has a large window for a fine camera display view and it is entirely detached from the front body to make easier the camera fitting. Sony Cyber-shot RX100 Mark III own strobe lighting can be used fitting an outside diffuser on the porthole. For better performance with wide-angle lenses, one or two external strobes can be connected by optical fiber using the adaptor included.
