All the essentials in the palm of your hand

With 24-720mm ZEISS zoom lens and 4K video recording
The world's smallest camera with 24-720mm 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.

The world's smallest compact camera

with 24-720mm zoom
With high-magnification ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens
Despite its compact size the camera offers a broad zoom range, from wide-end 24mm to 720mm telephoto, and with Clear Image Zoom the subject can be magnified while effectively preserving high resolution, at up to 1440mm.

Optical SteadyShotTfor 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 4K 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.

Beautiful depiction of fine textures

Advanced image-processing technology delivers high-resolution images with low noise
The back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor, with 18.2-megapixel effective resolution, and the advanced BIONZ X 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 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.) 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-second7 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

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

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.

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.

Touch functions that are simple and intuitive

Touch Focus lets you set the focus simply by touching the monitor, while the Touch Pad function shifts the focus smoothly when you slide a finger across the LCD screen. You can also trip the shutter by touching the LCD screen.

A 180° tiltable LCD screen for easier selfies

The 3.0-type Extrafine LCD screen, with 922k-dot resolution, can be rotated upwards by around 180° so you can quickly check the composition of self-portraits or souvenir photos with friends.

Instant connectivity for easy sharing

Wi-Fi, NFC and Bluetooth compatibility
You can remotely control the camera's shutter, zoom and other operations wirelessly from a smartphone or tablet device with the PlayMemories 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.
