The world's smallest camera with 24-720mm zoom, the HX99 goes wherever the action is. With its ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24-720mm lens and high-level features like Fast Intelligent AF and responsive Eye AF, it delivers remarkable performance in any setting.
Optical SteadyShot 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.
Clear Beautiful 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.
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-megapixel 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.
4K Video Recording to Capture 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.) continuous shooting, helps you keep up with fast-moving subjects, making it easier to capture those decisive action shots.
- Fast Intelligent AF: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 Portraits: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: Shoot continuous images for up to 155 frames 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.
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 Mobile 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 location.
