Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX99 Digital Camera

Sony SKU: DSCHX99/B | Helix SKU: SYDSCHX99B

Powerful zoom and serious performance

Despite its super-compact size, the HX99 delivers high-quality images and outstanding performance, incorporating high-level functions like 24–720 mm zoom, 4K video recording, fast and precise AF, plus a high-contrast OLED electronic viewfinder, handy control ring and tiltable LCD touchscreen for easy operation.

All the essentials in the palm of your hand

With 24–720 mm1 ZEISS ® zoom lens and 4K2 3 video recording

The world's smallest6 camera with 24–720 mm1 zoom, the HX99 goes wherever the action is. With its ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24–720 mm1 lens and high-level features like Fast Intelligent AF and responsive Eye AF, it delivers remarkable performance in any setting.

The world's smallest6 compact camera
with 24–720 mm1 zoom

With high-magnification ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* lens

Despite its compact size, the camera offers a broad zoom range from wide-end 24 mm1 to 720 mm1 telephoto, and with Clear Image Zoom the subject can be magnified while effectively preserving high resolution at up to 1440 mm1.

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 that are well-suited to your shooting conditions.

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-megapixel7 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. Color reproduction is also improved, especially for human skin tones.

4K2 3 video recording captures fine details

4K videos (QFHD: 3840 x 2160) recorded with full pixel readout and no pixel binning

The camera records approx. 1.6 times as much information as is required for 4K video output, resulting in outstanding resolution with reduced moiré and jaggies. Videos also accurately reproduce textures and fine details to an extent not possible with full HD.

Capture special moments when they happen

Speedy AF, combined with 10fps (max.)8 continuous shooting, helps you keep up with fast-moving subjects, making it easier to capture those decisive action shots.  

Fast Intelligent AF with 0.09-second9 response

The HX99's spatial subject detection algorithm and fast lens drive help capture even fleeting moments. The algorithm predicts the focus point, then as the shutter button is half-pressed the AF quickly focuses on the subject.

Eye AF for perfect portrait shots

Eye AF for perfect portrait shots

The Eye AF feature automatically detects and focuses on the eyes of the main subjects. It performs well even under difficult conditions, such as when the subject is looking downward or when faces are backlit or dimly lit.

High-speed continuous shooting at up to 10fps

High-speed continuous shooting at up to 10fps8

Shoot continuous images for up to 155 frames10

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.
