Oct 29, 2018

Category: Tech

Sony’s latest addition to the cyber shot family of cameras — model DSC-HX99 — is being touted as the world’s smallest travel high-zoom camera. The impressive little digital shooter features a ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 24-720mm lens featuring their Optical SteadyShot image stabilization technology that’s able to minimize the troublesome camera shake and blur associated with telephoto shooting.

The camera body houses a BIONZ X processing engine capable of capturing stunning 4Kii video and high-frame rate HD video at 120fps. For shooting stills, the compact camera acquires focus in 0.09 seconds and can shoot continuously at 10fps to capture up to 155 shots. It also shoots images in RAW format with a maximum ISO of 6400. The HX99 has a 180-degree tiltable LCD screen, a pop-up electronic viewfinder, and Bluetooth functionality to record location data and allow for instant transfers to smartphones for quick sharing. The newest cyber shot ships in early November, right in time to capture some holiday family joy — from a safe distance of course.
