Here are the major points for video recording on Sony DSC-RX100M3:
  • The recording is done in XAVC S2 format which is a new feature implemented
  • For video compression MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 is used
  • For audio compression linear PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) is used
  • The files are stored in MP4 format which is easily sharable across the web
  • The technology implemented allows minimal compression noise in all kinds of situations, involving scenes with lots of movements 
  • Since there is a big amount of compression done both on video and audio recordings this means that you can record for a quite long time
  • The maximum recording time is approximately 29 minutes (XAVC and AVCHD formats), 20 minutes (MPEG4 (1440 x 1080))
  • The full sensor readout and the very fast BIONZ X processor mean considerably higher resolution video compared to other compact cameras, higher quality video due to the bigger amount of data being able to process
  • The maximum video bit rate is double increased to 50 Mbps compared to 28 Mbps on previous RX100 Sony compact cameras
  • Full HD (1920x1080) 60p high quality video recording
  • It can also record in the AVCHD format which is perfect for quality video for HDTV and Blu-ray Disc burning
  • ND (Neutral Density) filter which can be turned on or off in movie mode 
  • Focus peaking and zebra pattern can also be turned on or off
Important note: for recording in the XAVC S2 format an SDXC card is required or the camera will give an error.

I have seen video recordings from this camera and it is almost like you can shoot a descent movie with this camera. Truly AWESOME video quality.
