SONY RX100 III REVIEW

SONY RX100 III REVIEW
I believe some of my readers have noticed I changed my camera. If you're following my Instagram, then you should notice the difference of my photo quality, it has become clearer then it haven't before! Introducing my latest and current favourite camera - Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III. Some of you might recognised it with Sony RX100 III in short. For me, I called it "Kuro", it means black in Japanese.

So, why I choose this camera? No worries, I'm still using my Casio Exilim FR100. I was selling my Casio ZR1000 and plan to find a replacement. A lot of camera brands and models pop out in my mind and I have no idea which one is the one that suitable for me. Until one day, I was having high tea with one of my girlfriend and she is using Sony RX100 IV. She told me how great of this camera. Thus, I go to the nearest store and have a look. At the end I grab Sony RX100 III and here is the story how I grab my Kuro back home. Actually I bought it like 3 months ago but I'm so busy with the pending post back then, so I have drag until now only blog about it.

This is my first time to use Sony camera and I'm really impressed with the quality. I adore every single video and photo I took. Luckily they didn't let me down. I love how the camera is handy so I can carry it around especially during travelling. So far Kuro only been to Thailand, Macau and Hong Kong for this three months. I can't wait to bring it explore the world!
