New Sony Cyber-shot HX99 DSC-HX99 Pocket Camera is Hot Holiday Tech Gift

Sony unveiled a new small point and shoot camera with a high zoom.

Just in time for the Holiday shopping season Sony releases a new point and shoot camera that is an ideal Holiday gift for who don't use a high-end smartphone. The new Sony Cyber-shot HX99 (DSC-HX99) camera packs an extreme zoom range of 24-720mm into the world's smallest camera body of its kind.

The new Sony Cyber-shot HX99 Travel Zoom camera will ship in early November for $449.99. If you own an iPhone X, Google Pixel, Samsung Galaxy S9 or similar, a pocket camera is just not something you need, even if it has more zoom. There are plenty of people that only have a mid-range smartphone with cameras that do not make stunning photos. For those a point and shoot camera is great and even offers advantages because of the larger lens.

The HX99 includes the ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 24-720mmi High Magnification Zoom lens, 4Kii movie shooting, a powerful BIONZ X image processing engine with a front-end LSI, extremely fast AF, Eye AF, 10 fps shooting and more.

Thanks to its powerful BIONZ X processing engine, the new HX99 camera can capture stunning 4Kii video with full pixel readout and no pixel binning, with minimal "moire" and "jaggies." The new model also is capable of shooting high-frame rate HDvi video at up to 120 fps to produce impressive slow-motion sequences during editing.

During still photography, the camera can acquire focus in as little as 0.09 seconds, and it can shoot continuously at up to 10 fps for up to 155 shots. The HX99 also is equipped with Eye AF technology, a feature made popular by Sony's acclaimed lineup of ╬▒TM interchangeable lens cameras that locks focus onto a subject's eye for compelling portrait and fast-action photography. The camera also is capable of shooting images in RAW format and has a maximum ISO of 6400.

The versatile HX99 travel camera includes Touch Focus and Touch Shutter functionality for added convenience, as well as a TouchPad function for smooth focus point shifting while using the retractable OLED Tru-Finder. The camera also has a Control Ring that can be customized with functions such as manual focus or step zooming, as well as a customizable 'My Menu' option for instant recall of up to 30 different settings.

The new camera has a 180-degree tiltable LCD screen that allows for easy framing of self-portraits and group shots, a pop up electronic viewfinder and an upgraded grip that offers a firm hold and greater stability during shooting.
