The RX100 series has been a wildly popular point and shoot for Sony, and this morning brought news of its third generation model, dubbed the Mark III. It’ll be available at the end of June for $ 799, a steep price by point and shoot standards, but considering ricing for previous RX100 models, it fits right in line.

Inside the new Mark III, you’ll find a host of new improvements and all the latest camera tech. It boasts an upgraded image processor called the Bionz X, which enables 10 fps continuous shooting in speed priority mode (focus is locked on the first image), as well as rich image details with smooth color and tonal gradation. The MkIII retains the same 1-inch 20.9 MP sensor.
