We like it because...
with 30x optical zoom, you can shoot in great detail – even from afar. And with built-in Wi-Fi and NFC you can share your best shots this summer, instantly
The Sony HX90 can shoot and share impressive sceneries, even from afar. With its 30x optical zoom, 18.2 megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor and a Full HD 1080p video resolution, you’ll be able to capture incredible details of all that surrounds you.
Detailed results with location tagging
Thanks to its Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* zoom lens with five-axis image stabilization system, the X90 produces high contrast and sharp images. It is this lens which is capable of a 30x optical zoom, and 60x with Sony’s Clear Image Zoom technology so you’ll be able to capture faraway subjects in an incredible detail.
Wi-Fi & NFC
There’s only one thing better than taking a great photo, and that’s sharing it. With Wi-Fi and NFC built-in you can share your best shots in a second. And with the Smartphone remote app you’ll always be in control thanks to remote shooting.
Tilting LCD display & OLED viewfinder
The 3-inch LCD display can be tilted by up to 180 degrees which is ideal for selfie shots. This versatile camera even has a pop-up OLED viewfinder which features real-time data for planning and previewing shots.
Full HD video
Capture movies in Full HD 1080p for a high quality video which can be played back on your high-definition TV. Recording frames in XAVC S and MP4, the format is ideal for sharing because it is extra-smooth and compressed.
A borrowed function from Sony’s premium point-and-shoot range is teh control ring. This can be freely assigned to functions such as manual focusing or step zoom which will provide you with total shooting control.
The pocket-sized Cyber-shot HX90 can easily fit into your day-to-day hand luggage so it is also ready when you are to take the shot.
