Sony RX100M3 images leak with clever pop-up EVF

Sony's new RX100M3 can't stop leaking, and hot on the heels of the full spec list come images showing the camera and its unusual pop-up viewfinder. The compact 20.1-megapixel shooter manages to squeeze an electronic viewfinder (EVF) into its pocketable body, with a 1.4m dot resolution for those times you don't want to use the 3-inch adjustable display.

That display can be tilted up all the way so that it's visible for the front, which Sony is undoubtedly going to use as a selling point for selfies.

As with the two previous generations in the RX100 series, all eyes are on what lens Sony has chosen to pair its EXMOR R 1-inch CMOS sensor with. In the case of the RX100M3, it's a new Zeiss 24-70mm f/1.8-2.8 lens, for a 2.9x optical zoom.

There's also Full HD video recording, BIONZ X processing, and both WiFi and NFC. The camera will work with Sony's PlayMemories apps for iOS and Android, allowing remote control of recording as well as easier sharing of images and video.

Sony is expected to announce the RX100M3 officially by the end of the week. The camera's believed to cost around $899.99.
