For European customers, Sony has launched the Cyber-shot HX95 and HX99, a pair of slim, compact high-zoom cameras featuring the BIONZ X image processing engine, front-end LSI and 4K video recording. Both models are nearly identical, each sporting a 180-degree tiltable LCD, OLED Tru-Finder, and 1/2.3″ Exmor R 18MP CMOS sensor.
Both the Cyber-shot HX95 and HX99 feature a ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* 24-720mm High Magnification Zoom lens, Optical SteadShot image stabilization, Zoom Assist, and auto focus speeds as fast as 0.09 seconds. Both models support 4K video recording at 3840 x 2160.
The Cyber-shot HX99 camera differs from the HX95 in a few ways, one of which is an OLED Tru-Finder with a control ring versus the HX95’s retractable viewfinder. The HX99 also features a control ring for customized camera functions, Touch Shutter, Touch Focus, and a focus point shifting function called Touch Pad.
Both the HX99 (€520 / £450) and the HX95 (€500 / £430) will be available in Europe starting October 2018.
