The Savoy III has the same characteristics with the Savoy II (35 mm film, cocking lever, Berthiot 2,8/50 mm lens), but it has also a collimated viewfinder.
In the Natkin catalog of 1961-62, an advertisement was specifying it as: "The image seen through is almost natural sized and a luminous frame limits the subject with precision".

The ROYER factory launches a new collimated ultra-bright viewfinder, an entirely new design. This viewfinder is used on a more luxurious version of the Savoy: The Savoy III .
Produced in France by S.O.M. Berthiot under the exclusive license conceded to ROYER, the CRISTAL collimated viewfinder is an optical bloc composed of three lenses assembled. The inner side of the front lens is coated with a semi-aluminum layer while the back glass has a frame on the surface, drawn also with an aluminized layer.
The frame is seen superposed to the photographed subject, limiting it to a pointed, bright area.
Other reference lines are projected along the frame for parallax correction for close-ups.

This viewfinder is entirely a new optical concept signifying an important progress in viewfinder technologies. It offers the following advantages:
- Extraordinary brightness
- Image size almost natural
- Precise limiting frame
- Possibility to see not only the subject (the area limited by the frame) but also its surrounding area. (For composing the scene or sports photography)
- It's the only viewfinder type allowing the eyeglass users make perfect shots because it has a large back viewing hole.
