The Sony DSC-HX99 is Sony’s compact superzoom camera that sports a 30x optical zoom where its focal length is a 24mm-720mm lens. Sporting some fancy new features like eye-AF and 4K video recording, this promises to be a feature packed camera that would be great for anyone from the casual snapshot photographer to vloggers and anyone wanting some nice and simple to use for daily use.

Gabriel Mendes says:

The camera is easy to use for a novice and has enough control over the settings to make it advanced enough for a advanced photographer🎥>業 I considered the HX90 but the difference in features for the $ more in price was negligible. I am more than satisfied. I can't wait to use it on my next adventure- hiking the Grand Canyon!

Log Home says:

Yarir A.A Rubio says:

Levian & Z Nachtschatten says:

Your headphones arethe sony wh 1000xm3. Awsome headphone, i have sony mdr 1a.

fingerhorn4 says:

It's a tiny camera that squeezes in a viewfinder and a flash. That's why it has a micro memory slot, to keep everything as small as possible. The view finder is a triumph of ergonomics and very cleverly made so it can be shut away flush with the body. Sony is brilliant at this kind of thing. But the question is – what are the advantages over a decent camera phone. Image wise very little unless you really want a strong zoom.

antony porter says:

great video cheers but it looks too small to handle ??

Delores McEachern says:

Mark Terene says:

You are a very likable, professional Youtuber! Great video. Very interested in this camera. Be well. Hug the dog for me.

Mattez says:

What are the max recording times in 1080p and 4k?

crguti says:

Hx90 vs Hx99 ❔

Alexis Rojas Garcia says:

Does it overheating in 4k?

Piero Rojas says:

Hi, I would ask you for an advice, I found this camera for 360euros does it really worth it or it will be better a hx90 for 250euros? Thanks bro!

Jim Riviera says:

This by far is the best video I have watched on the HX99. I have been looking for an alternative to my Sony A6500 to carry around on travel. I really appreciate the review from a photographers point of view. The other reviews on this camera were geared more towards vlogging which I do not do. Although having a 1” sensor and lower aperture lens such as the RX100 VII, I think this camera will still allow you to create some good photos at a much less expensive price tag. Once again, outstanding video and it has helped me make my decision. All the best. Love the dog. !
