The world’s smallest camera with wide zoom range

Covering the range from wide-angle 24mm to telephoto 720mm, the Sony DSC HX99 is the perfect camera for everything from memorable travel photos to everyday snapshots. The ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* lens delivers superb image quality all across the zoom range, and the Clear Image Zoom feature allows further magnification of the subject (up to 1440mm) while preserving high resolution.  [1] 24mm  [2] 720mm  [3] 1440mm

Exmor R™ and BIONZ X™ deliver superb image quality

The Sony DSC HX99’s image sensor — an 18.2 megapixel (effective) back-illuminated CMOS sensor — works with the advanced BIONZ X image-processing system to deliver superb image quality, even for fine textures and details. With a range of ISO80-6400 (expanded), even dimly lit scenes can be beautifully shot, while colour-reproduction improvements produce natural-l ooking skin tones.

4K movies recorded with full pixel readout

The Sony DSC HX99 is the first in the HX-series to record 4K video (QFHD, 3840 x 2160 pixels). High quality 4K video is achieved with a full sensor pixel readout, and no pixel binning – collecting approximately 1.6x as much information as is required. This oversampling effect results in images of outstanding resolution with reduced moiré and jaggies.

Fast Intelligent AF to capture decisive moments

The camera adopts Fast Intelligent AF using high-speed, highly accurate contrast-detection autofocus. It achieves focus by minimising wasted lens motion, predicting AF range and accelerating the lens drive, improving response so you can capture even more fleeting moments.

Eye AF feature for perfect portrait shots

The camera’s sophisticated Eye AF feature can be activated to automatically detect and focus on the eyes of the main subjects in your shots. It rapidly and accurately detects eyes even under difficult conditions, such as when the subject is looking downward or when faces are backlit or dimly lit.

Continuous shooting at up to 10frames per second

It’s possible to perform high-speed continuous shooting at up to 10 frames per second. Even when image brightness changes during continuous shooting, the camera automatically adjusts to provide optimal exposure. Continuous-shot images can also be displayed, deleted and protected in groups.

Image stabilisation with Optical SteadyShot™

Useful for handheld shooting and when shooting at telephoto zoom settings, even with high magnification, the camera’s Optical SteadyShot feature is designed to stabilise the image and effectively reduce camera shake by relying on a high-performance gyro-sensor and a specialised algorithm. Because this is an optical function, image stabilisation is performed without lowering resolution.  [1] SteadyShot OFF  [2] SteadyShot ON

Clear, easy-to-operate OLED Tru-Finder™

The high-contrast OLED Tru-Finder is far brighter than conventional electronic viewfinders. It displays real-time preview and shooting information, so what you see on-screen is exactly what you get in your shot. The viewfinder is easily retractable, for portability, safety, and convenience.

Control ring for advanced photography

The convenient lens-mounted control ring allows you to operate pro-style manual controls such as selecting shutter speed, aperture, and more for added creative control — so there’s no need to compromise your vision because of the camera’s compact size.

Touch Focus and Shutter

With Touch Focus you can simply touch the LCD at the point of the image you want to focus on, for both still and video capture, so you can intuitively focus on subjects even at the edge of the frame without reframing. The shutter can also be operated by touching the LCD screen.
