LCD resolution of the Sony RX100 III

The rear LCD screen of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 III has a resolution of 1,229,000 dots and measures 3.0 inches across its diagonal. A high-resolution display offers a clearer and crisper user experience than a lower pixel screen, notably during live view framing and image review. While the physical size of the LCD is naturally limited by the space that is available on the back of the camera, the resolution of the rear screen has continued to increase over time, with new camera models often featuring nicer rear panels as one of the key arguments for a camera upgrade.

In terms of screen handling characteristics, the LCD of the Sony RX100 III is not touch sensitive and is flexibly attached to the body to allow for odd-angle shots. Also, the screen can be turned to be front-facing, such that it enables selfies and facilitates v-logging.
