About this product
Despite its super-compact size, the HX99 delivers high-quality images and outstanding performance, incorporating high-level functions like 24-720mm zoom, 4K video recording, fast and precise, plus a high-contrast OLED electronic viewfinder, handy control ring and tiltable LCD touch screen for easy operation.
Covering the range from wide-angle 24mm to telephoto 720mm, the HX99 is the perfect camera for everything from memorable travel photos to everyday snapshots.
The HX99's image sensor — an 18.2 megapixel (effective) back-illuminated CMOS sensor — works with the advanced BIONZ X image-processing system to deliver superb image quality, even for fine textures and details.
The HX99 is the first in the HX-series to record 4K video (QFHD, 3840 x 2160 pixels). High-quality 4K video is achieved with a full sensor pixel readout, and no pixel binning - collecting approximately 1.6x as much information as is required.

Poor build quality especially considering that this is not a budget camera. After a couple of weeks use, I noticed a bulge in the bottom plate of this camera, together with a gap between the base plate and the main body.
Zoom is wonderful
We are delighted with it. Zoom is better than binoculars ad viewfinder is a great asset.
Excelen compact camera
I have this camera as second camera for trekking, where Sony A7m2 is to big and to heavy. It is a bit small for my hands, but results are superb.
I can confirm that you do not have to connect to a microphone as this has one built in.
I hope this helps :)
