The world's smallest camera with wide zoom range

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

Exmor R™ and BIONZ X™ deliver superb image quality

The 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-looking skin tones.

4K movies recorded with full pixel readout

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.

Continuous shooting at up to 10 frames 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.

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.

180 ° tiltable LCD screen for flexible composition

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.

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.

Touch Pad AF

When using the viewfinder, use Touch Pad AF to shift focus smoothly and easily, simply by sliding your finger across the LCD screen.

RAW format recording

In order to give users far greater control over the final appearance of their photos, the HX99 provides RAW-format image recording as an option. With this format all the data from the sensor is preserved, so exposure, brightness, white balance and other aspects of the image can be easily adjusted using image-editing software.

Internal pop-up flash

The camera's built-in, manual pop-up flash feature enables various modes of flash photography. Slow Sync is useful for shooting atmospheric night portraits, Rear Sync lets you creatively express motion, and the Autoflash setting automatically determines whether the flash is necessary.

Lock-on AF for enhanced photo opportunities

Lock-on AF captures and continues tracking moving subjects. It automatically adjusts the AF target frame size to match the subject size, improves tracking performance, and helps you take full advantage of every photo opportunity.

One-touch remote/One-touch sharing

With one-touch remote, a smartphone or tablet functions as a monitor/remote control. One-touch sharing transfers photos/videos to the device. Just install a PlayMemories Mobile™ app via Wi-Fi® to an NFC-enabled Android™ device, then touch the device to the camera to connect them. QR code compatibility allows connection with non-NFC smartphones.

Sony's top-of-the-range travel camera misses out on a 1-inch sensor, but packs a highly versatile 30x optical zoom into a neat little body.

Photography BLOG

The Sony Cyber-shot HX99 is one of the best travel-zoom cameras on the market, offering a compelling mix of great still and video image quality and an upgraded feature-set, in spite of a big jump in the asking price (in the UK at least ).

ePHOTOzine

The Sony Cyber-shot HX99 offers an update to the HX90, adding 4K video, and increasing the price. If you want one of the smallest travel zooms available, then the HX99 is definitely the most pocketable in this segment of the market, however, the price could put many people off.

PC Magazine

The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX99 puts a long zoom into a pocket-friendly body, but shows ugly flare and struggles in dim light.

Camera Decision

Only just started using this. Functionality is easy and picture quality looks OK but need to do a more extensive test on holiday next week. My third Sony camera and very easy to use basic functions. Connectivity with my tablet, smartphone and PC were effortless.

Having had the camera a few weeks it has produced some great pictures. Where to find the functions is not always intuitive. Sadly the documentation is on online in reference format. It is not in a format (pdf or print) that you can read and understand the full extent of its abilities.

Only had the camera for a couple of weeks and used it more than my DSLR for a couple of years. Really impressed with how it handles most situations with ease. Backlight feature terrific. Picture quality excellent for this size of sensor. Do the same thing with a full frame sensor please.

I haven't had my camera for long so I am still getting used to it but I am really pleased with it. I am not very technically minded so this camera is ideal for me as I can let it sort out focus and exposure while I concentrate on composure.

I previously used a SLR camera until the lens failed to focus. I found the SLR was becoming too heavy as I got older! and I required a camera that I could carry in my pocket. His camera is ideal for my requirements.

An amazing feature packed camera in such a small body! Not really had a chance to use all the functions but even in auto mode you can change some settings. Not tried the WiFi transfer, some have said it's difficult to set up.

I travel a lot worldwide and love taking pictures. I had an Olympus OMD but needed to carry this and a range of lenses with me to take what I wanted. I really wanted a small compact camera with a powerful zoom so that I could put it in a pocket and be able to snap some good close up shots. This Sony camera fits the bill, being light, small but with a great built in Zeiss lens and zoom. I love it!
