Sony HX99 and HX95 compact cameras bring high-zoom and 4K support

31 August 2018 2

Sony has launched two new compact cameras DSC-HX99 and DSC-HX95 at IFA 2018 in Berlin. These are the newest additions to the highly popular Cybershot series. Both of these boast high-zoom capabilities despite having a really compact size which Sony is touting as the world's smallest ultra-compact body.

Both Sony HX99 and HX95 are essentially similar cameras except for a few changes. To start off, both of these boast up to 30x zoom from 24mmi to up to 720mmi with a super telephoto lens. They can shoot videos in 4K quality with full pixel readout and no pixel binning. It further supports the RAW file format, optical image stabilization, 10fps burst shot up to 155 images, and 30fps video recording. There are Bluetooth, NFC, and WiFi as connectivity options.

While these features are available on both models, there are some features which are exclusive to the Sony HX99. These include a touchscreen display which allows tap to focus. It further has manual exposure settings which can be accessed using the lens ring adjustment.

Sony has priced the HX99 and HX95 at €520 and €500 respectively in Europe. Both of these will go on sale starting October 2018 but there are no words on the global release yet.
