Product Code: DSC-HX99
The world's smallest camera with 24-720mm zoom, the HX99 goes wherever the action is. With its ZEISS® Vario-Sonar T* 24-720mm lens and high-level features like Fast Intelligent AF and responsive Eye AF, it delivers remarkable performance in any setting.
Covering the range from wide-angle 24mm to telephoto 720mm, the 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.
The 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.
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.
Fast, Intelligent AF
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.
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.
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.
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.
180º Tiltable LCD Screen
The high-resolution 3.0-inch type screen with tilt capability is perfect for taking selfies and framing low-angle shots. You can use it in various shooting positions for greater flexibility in capturing creative compositions.
Geo-tag via Bluetooth
With the Bluetooth Location Information Link you can easily geo-tag your images – perfect when travelling. Simply pair your camera to a compatible smartphone with the PlayMemories Mobile app and your location data can be recorded together with each photo. The PlayMemories Home app can also be used on your PC to organise imported still images on a map.
