Sony Cyber-shot HX99 High Zoom (24-720mm) Digital Camera

Covering the range from wide-angle 24mm to telephoto 720mm (30x), 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 (60x) while preserving high resolution.

Exmor R and BIONZ X

An 18.2 megapixel (effective) back-illuminated Exmor R 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 color-reproduction improvements produce natural-looking skin tones.

Stunning 4K Video

Capture stunning 4K video (QFHD, 3840 x 2160 pixels) with 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. The HX99 is also capable of shooting high-frame rate HD video at up to 120 fps to produce impressive slow-motion sequences during editing.

Eye-AF for Perfect Portraits

The 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.

Fast Intelligent AF

The HX99 adopts Fast Intelligent AF using high-speed, highly accurate contrast-detection autofocus. It achieves focus by minimizing wasted lens motion, predicting AF range and accelerating the lens drive, improving response so you can capture even more fleeting moments.

Control Ring for Advanced Photography

The convenient lens-mounted control ring allows you to operate pro-style manual controls such as manual focus, step zooming or 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 HX99 also features a customizable ‘My Menu’ option for instant recall of up to 30 different settings.

10fps with Fast AF

During still photography, the HX99 can acquire focus in as little as 0.09 seconds, and can shoot continuously at up to 10 fps for up to 155 shots. Continuous-shot images can also be displayed, deleted and protected in groups.

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 pop-up viewfinder is easily retractable, for portability, safety, and convenience.

Selfie-Ready 180-degree Tiltable 3-Inch LCD

The high-resolution 3-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.

Optical SteadyShot IS

Optical SteadyShot image stabilization effectively minimizes blurry images caused by camera shake that often occurs during handheld and telephoto shooting.
