Super compact but boasting powerful zoom, high quality images and 4K movie footage, the HX99 is ready to follow and capture the action. For such a small camera, it features high level features like a ZEISS zoom lens, fast intelligent autofocus, OLED viewfinder and 180° tilting touch screen. It's built to be supremely travel-friendly but deliver remarkable performance.
The ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* lens delivers superb image quality all across the zoom range, from 24mm wide angle to 720mm telephoto (35mm equivalent). As well as 28x optical zoom, the Clear Image Zoom feature offers even further magnification while retaining high resolution. It makes the HX99 the perfect camera for everything from everyday shots to memorable travel photos.
4K movie footage
This is the first in Sony's HX camera series to feature 4K movie capture. Full sensor pixel readout with no pixel binning results in outstanding resolution with reduced moiré and jaggies.
Fast & responsive autofocus
Fast Intelligent AF uses high-speed, highly accurate contrast-detection autofocus to capture that perfect split-second moment. Sophisticated Eye AF is perfect for portrait shots, instantly focussing on the eye, even in difficult shooting conditions. Shoot high-speed continuously at 10 frames per second.
Optical Steadyshot keeps your shots sharp and crisp, even when shooting handheld or at high telephoto zoom levels.
180° tiltable screen & manual control ring
Its touch screen is fully tiltable up to 180° for easy selfies and perfect for framing from dynamic perspectives. Its retractable OLED viewfinder is brighter than conventional EVFs, displaying a real-time preview of 100% of the shot. And a manual control ring offers satisfying control of shutter speed, aperture and more, for a high level of creative control in such a small and compact camera.

- Zoom (digital)
Enlarges video captured by the optical zoom and makes it seem even closer. This involves zooming in on an existing image, so it gives slightly less detailed results than an equivalent optical zoom
