All the essentials in the palm of your hand
With 24-720mm1 ZEISS ® zoom lens and 4K2 3 video recording, this is the world’s smallest5 camera with 24-720mm1 zoom, the HX99 goes wherever the action is. With its ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24-720mm1 lens and high-level features like Fast Intelligent AF and responsive Eye AF, it delivers remarkable performance in any setting.
Impressive zoom range
Despite its compact size, the camera offers a broad zoom range, from wide-end 24mm1 to 720mm1 telephoto, and with Clear Image Zoom, the subject can be magnified while effectively preserving high resolution, at up to 1440mm.
Optical SteadyShotTM for high-quality images
The HX99’s sophisticated algorithms and high-performance gyro-sensor work together to compensate for camera shake. This provides a significant reduction in shake even with hand-held shooting at high zoom magnifications.
Zoom Assist for easy framing of moving subjects
Zoom Assist enables fast, easy framing of moving subjects at telephoto range. Assign a custom button to this function and, when it’s pressed, the camera will temporarily zoom back out so you can find your subject and quickly reframe.
High-resolution 4K2 3 video and high-quality still images
Advanced imaging technology provides superior image quality in both videos and still shots. From natural-looking portraits to vibrant images even in dim lighting conditions, you’ll get beautiful images suited to your shooting conditions.
A beautiful depiction of fine textures
Advanced image-processing technology delivers high-resolution images with low noise
The back-illuminated Exmor RTM CMOS sensor, with 18.2-megapixel6 effective resolution, and the advanced BIONZ XTM image-processing system work together to reduce noise at high ISO settings like ISO6400 (expanded). Fine textures are accurately reproduced, and even dimly lit scenes can be beautifully shot. Colour reproduction is also improved, especially for human skin tones.
Fast AF performance
Capture special moments when they happen. Speedy AF, combined with 10fps (max.)7 continuous shooting, helps you keep up with fast-moving subjects, making it easier to capture those decisive action shots.
High-speed continuous shooting at up to 10fps7
Shoot continuous images for up to 155 frames9. When you’re following fast-moving action you’ll appreciate the camera’s impressive continuous shooting capabilities. Continuously shot images can also be displayed, deleted and protected in groups.
Convenient features for easier shooting. Incorporated in the camera’s compact body are a number of handy features that are designed to make shooting easier and more comfortable.
Instant connectivity for easy sharing
Wi-Fi®, NFCTM and Bluetooth® compatibility. You can remotely control the camera’s shutter, zoom and other operations wirelessly from a smartphone or tablet device with the Imaging Edge Mobile10 application. You can also transfer still photos and videos wirelessly. And, using a Bluetooth® connection to your smartphone, it’s even possible to automatically geo-tag your images with your shooting location11.
