Unique competition gives you the chance to try this exciting camera – and possibly get to keep it. Calling all wildlife photographers – how do you fancy winning the amazing Sony Cyber-shot RX10 Mark III?

The RX10 III is arguably the world’s finest bridge camera, and is the perfect solution for nature and wildlife photographers looking for an all-in-one solution. Not only does the fast 25x zoom lens allow you to zoom right in to your subject, but the super-fast AF and Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation also ensures a sharp image, free from camera shake. Meanwhile, the silent shutter means you won’t disturb your subjects when you press it. If shooting close-up is more your thing the macro mode lets you shoot from as close as 3cm from the lens. It also shoots video in glorious 4K, or in 960fps (40x) high speed mode for dramatic slow motion.

The Sony RX10 III, worth £1,549:

  • Large-diameter ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24-600mm f/2.4-4 lens
  • 1.0-type stacked CMOS sensor and BIONZ XTM image processor
  • 4K movie recording and 960fps (40x) high-speed shooting
  • Silent shooting
  • 3cm macro mode
