    Berlin/Wien, 30. August 2018. So viel Zoom in einer kompakten Ka- mera: Die DSC-HX99 und DSC-HX95 Cyber-shot Kameras mit einem Zoom von 24 bis 720 Millimetern sind die kleinsten ihrer Art weltweit. Im Innern beider Modelle gibt der BIONZ X Prozessor mit Front-End LSI den Takt vor. So sind bis zu zehn Bilder in Serie für maximal 14 Sekun- den am Stück und 4K Videos möglich. Der Autofokus greift nach spä- testens 0,09 Sekunden in Rekordzeit. Von ihren großen Brüdern aus der Alpha Serie haben die beiden kleinen Neulinge den Augen- Autofokus geerbt. Sogar RAW Aufnahmen sind fortan möglich. Wer möchte, kann den Fokuspunkt direkt auf dem Monitor mit der Finger- spitze wählen oder mit per Bluetooth verbundenem Smartphone die GPS Daten gleich mitspeichern.

    Hochwertiges ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 24-720 mm Zoom-Objektiv

    Die beiden neuen HX99 und HX95 Kameras sind mit ihrem mächtigen Zoom jeder Fotoherausforderung unterwegs gewachsen. Um die Bild- qualität auch im Telebereich auf höchstmöglichem Niveau zu halten, garantiert der optische „SteadyShot“ Bildstabilisator verwacklungsfreie Bilder. Und damit man bei maximalem Zoomfaktor nicht den Überblick verliert, vergrößert der „Zoom Assistant“ auf Knopfdruck den Blickwin- kel, um kurzfristig mehr Umgebung im Bild zu haben.

    Prozessor Power

    Experten horchen auf, wenn sie hören, dass die neuen Kameras von Sony bei 4K Videos den Sensor vollständig auslesen und auf „Pixel Binning“ verzichten. So bleiben feinste Details erhalten, Moiré und an- dere unerwünschte Effekte werden auf ein Minimum reduziert. Mit ent- sprechend schneller Speicherkarte sind auch Zeitlupenaufnahmen mit bis zu 100 Frames pro Sekunde möglich. Und weil die meisten Motive sich nicht lange bitten lassen, erfasst der „Fast Intelligent“ Autofokus innerhalb von 0,09 Sekunden jede Person. Auf Wunsch erkennen die schlauen Kameras sogar die Augen derjeni- gen oder desjenigen vor der Linse und stellen direkt auf die Iris scharf. Wer Fotos gern am PC nachbearbeitet, kann im RAW Format fotogra- fieren – auf Wunsch bis ISO 6.400.

    Intuitive und komfortable Bedienung

    Bei der DSC-HX90 Kamera hatten viele einen Touchscreen auf der Kamerarückseite vermisst. Perfekt also, dass Sony in die neue DSC- HX99 sowohl einen „Touch Focus“ als auch einen „Touch Shutter“ inte- griert hat. Ab sofort lässt sich mit der Fingerkuppe der Autofokuspunkt verlegen oder die Kamera auslösen. Alternativ kann jederzeit der OLED Sucher genutzt werden. Wer die wichtigsten Kameraeinstellungen gern selbst festlegt und sich nicht auf die Automatik verlassen möchte, nutzt unter anderem den Objektivring bei der HX99. So lässt sich nicht nur Fernes nah heranhollen, sondern auch manuell scharfstellen. Sowohl die HX99 als auch die HX95 bieten im Menü den Unterpunkt „Mein Me- nü“, damit jeder die für ihn wichtigsten Kamerafunktionen an einem Punkt zusammenfassen kann. Bis zu 30 Funktionen lassen sich hier speichern.

    Der LCD-Bildschirm an der Kamerarückseite lässt sich nicht nur für Selfies um 180 Grad drehen. Der im Vergleich zur DSC-HX90 verbes- serte Griff lässt die Kamera gut in der Hand liegen. Klar, dass die neu- en Kameras nicht nur Standortinformationen, sondern auch Fotos aus- tauschen können.

    Sony Announces World's Smallest Travel High Zoom Cameras with 4K Movie Capability and Upgraded Image Processor

    ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T 24-720mm[i] High Magnification Zoom and High Image Quality Lens packed into compact body*
    Stunning 4K[ii] video with full pixel readout and no pixel binning
    BIONZ X™ image processing engine and newly implemented front-end LSI for seriously impressive stills
    Versatile operability and shooting capabilities including Eye AF, EVF, Control Ring[iii], Touch Focus
    Touch Shutteriii, Tiltable LCD and more for flexible shooting options

    Sony today boosted its Cyber-shot® line-up of travel high zoom cameras with the launch of the DSC-HX99 and DSC-HX95.

    Designed for users who want an unobtrusive camera that can be carried at all times, the new models are packaged in the world's smallest[iv] body and offer a truly versatile zoom range from 24mmi at the wide end up to 720mmi super-telephoto. In addition to stunning 4K movie footage, at the heart of both models sits the powerful BIONZ X image processing engine combined with a front-end LSI that delivers high-speed continuous shooting at up to 10 fps with a buffer limit of up to 155 images[v]. Furthermore, these new models present a fast AF speed of 0.09 seconds[vi]. Some newly added features are Eye AF, RAW format image recording, touch focus/touch shutter function, and location data acquisition[vii] via Bluetooth®.

    ZEISS® Vario-Sonnar T* 24-720mm High Magnification Zoom and High Image Quality Lens

    The huge zoom range offered by the HX99 and HX95 means that they are ideally suited to the varied demands of travel photography and capturing daily life. Image stabilisation is controlled with Optical SteadyShot™ which effectively negates the camera shake blur that often occurs during handheld and telephoto shooting. The models are also equipped with a Zoom Assist function that allows the user to zoom out temporarily and displays a wider area when shooting a subject at the telephoto end.

    Processing Power

    The HX99 and HX95 can capture 4K video footage with full pixel readout and no pixel binning. This means that fine details are beautifully rendered and 'moiré' and 'jaggies' are significantly reduced. The new models can shoot fast-moving subjects with high-frame rate HD[viii] recording at up to 100fps[ix] to produce impressive slow-motion sequences during editing.

    As the perfect picture often occurs unexpectedly, photographers need to be able to trust their camera to react quickly. With a Fast Intelligent AF speed of just 0.09 seconds and an upgraded BIONZ X processor[x] and front-end LSI, the HX99 and HX95 are a perfect fit, delivering high speed continuous shooting at up to 10fps (buffer limit of up to 155 images)v. For beautifully focused portraits, the new models inherit the much praised Eye AF technology from their α™ siblings and for photographers who prefer to enhance their photos with image editing software, the HX99 and HX95 offer the option to shoot in RAW. Fading light? A maximum ISO6400[xi] means that this isn't a concern.

    Intuitive and Comfortable Operation

    Embracing feedback from users of the HX90 series, Sony has implemented Touch Focus and Touch Shutter functionality on the HX99 so that the photographer can directly select their shooting subject and fire whilst also implementing a Touch Pad function for smooth focus point shifting while using the retractable OLED Tru-Finder™. For those who wish to take command of their settings, the Control Ring of the HX99 can be customised with functions such as manual focus or step zooming and both HX99 and HX95 also offer My Menu personalisation for instant recall of up to 30 items and the ability to create custom menus.

    A 180-degree tiltable LCD screen allows for easy framing of selfies and group shots whilst an upgraded grip offers a firm hold and greater stability during shooting. Location data acquisition via Bluetooth® can collect and record location data from a mobile device (Location Information Link) and small size Proxy recording allows transfers to smartphones or uploading to websites for quick sharing.

    The new Sony Cyber-shot HX99 and HX95 will ship in Europe from October 2018, priced at approximately €520 for HX99 and €500 for HX95.
