Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III Will Be Available In Singapore From June 2014
· ·

The much anticipated Sony Cyber-shot RX100 III will be available in Singapore from June 2014 for S$1,199. It is not really a successor to the popular Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II because the RX100 II will still be on sale targeting a different audience because of the cheaper, S$899, price point.

For the RX100 III, Sony updated the lens to ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 24-70mm F1.8-2.8, added a retractable OLED Tru-Finder aka Electronic viewfinder (EVF) and changed the LCD so that it can be tilted 180° to take selfie photos.

Sony recently opened its largest flagship store in Southeast Asia at 313@Somerset #02-28 to 37 (directly opposite Starbucks). It occupies 9,902 square feet (920sqm) of floor area and its opening hours are from 10am to 10pm daily.

As a Sony member, we are given S$50 to spend at that store and surprisingly when I went there, there is nothing interesting for me to buy. Instead it is my mom who used the voucher and bought the Sony Digital Voice Recorder – ICD-UX543F for S$189 so that she can record meeting minutes.

Bought the Sony NEX-3N from Amazon when they have a lightning deal on the 13th January 2014 and hence it cost only US$289.99 (S$370)!

HopShopGo received the package on the 18th January 2014 with a chargeable weight of 3KG, but HopShopGo offers a repack option for a slight fee and hence it cuts down the chargeable weight to just 1KG! So shipping just cost me US$20.32 (S$26). I am a HopShopGo Prime Member, so your discount may varies!
