The travel-friendly Sony Cyber-shot HX99 Superzoom Compact Camera lets you get closer to your subjects without moving an inch. It's brilliantly compact yet has an impressive 24-720 mm range. That means you can zoom right in on architectural details or get a clear shot of your favourite band in concert.
And with image stabilisation, your images will be sharp even when you're zooming. It helps counter handheld camera shake – great for taking photos of your family and friends on overcast days or indoors.
Brilliant low light photography
Taking photos in low light can be tricky. That's why the Exmor R sensor and BIONZ X image processor work together to reduce noise at high ISO settings. So even if you're shooting around the city at night, your images will be free from grain, with natural colours and textures.
Appreciate the details in each scene with 4K Ultra HD movie making. The sensor collects more pixel information than it needs, so you get plenty of detail with almost no moiré and jagged edges.
Pick your best shot
Freezeframe the action by capturing up to 10 frames per second (fps). You'll be able to get some brilliant trick shots at your local skate park, or capture the moment your kid scores, and pick the best from the bunch.
And for those fleeting moments, the HX99 offers super quick auto focusing, great for both photos and video. For a professional-looking portrait, make use of the Eye AF feature to get your subject's eyes sharply in focus, even if they're looking down.
When you're taking a picture of your friend, you want the camera to focus on who's important. Touch focus lets you choose exactly where you want to focus using the touchscreen, so you can always get them in perfect focus. And just like using your smartphone, you can also tap the screen to take a photo.
Controlling all the key functions is a breeze. You can customise the control ring for easy access to your most used settings. Great for when you're shooting in tricky lighting conditions or want a bit more creative control over your photos.
More ways to shoot
With the HX99, you can shoot the way you like. The touchscreen flips up for easy selfies and group shots, while the pop-up viewfinder makes it easy to frame photos in bright sunlight.
Alternatively, pair the camera with your smartphone and you'll be able to use your phone as a second screen and remote. One-touch sharing makes it easy to transfer photos and videos straight to your NFC-enabled smartphone.
The decisive moment, that perfect shot, missed because you were waiting for your camera to be ready to take a photo again. But it's not your camera or your shooting technique – it's all down to having the right memory card.To prevent that annoying lag when capturing high res images and HD video, opt for a high performance memory card with a fast write speed. Now you can focus on your subject.
