Getting your settings right with the Sony RX100M3
On a recent excursion to the Skywalk at Santa Pola, Alicante Province, Spain to shoot some pictures for stock I only used the Sony RX100M3. I'm familiar with the camera and popped off a few shots to upload to my stock portfolio on ALAMY.
It was mid-morning and the light is pretty poor, particularly looking out to sea, so the best shots were to be had in the opposite direction.
When I used my another camera, the RX10 in conjunction with the Sony Playmemories 'smart remote control' software I didn't have any problems getting the results I wanted, but the setup with the RX100, for me, is not very intuitive.
It wasn't a big problem though as I had them on my phone didn't I?
The pictures below may look pretty, but the quality is only fit for screen viewing.

So, when you use the Sony RX100M3 with the apps on the phone, check and test to make sure you will be saving to the phone (I shoot RAW and JPG) and also make sure that the size setting for your phone is on 'original size'.
BEFORE connecting to the camera there is an option of copy image size on the phone version of PlayMemories... I choose original.
After connecting with the camera, the full view of PlayMemories will be showing, then, choosing menu gives you more options including the option of 'size of REVIEW image'.
That is where I was going wrong.
