    The world's smallest compact camera
    with 24-720mm zoom

    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 SteadyShot for high-quality images

    Optical SteadyShotTM 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.

    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 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 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-second response

    Fast Intelligent AF with 0.09-second response

    The HX99 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

    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

    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. Even if image brightness changes while shooting, the camera automatically adjusts to provide optimal exposure. 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 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

    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.
