The Sony DSC-HX90V is a premium compact that combines a high quality image sensor with a powerful zoom lens. An ideal travel companion, the HX90V is the perfect blend of image quality, size and shooting versatility.
Zeiss Quality Optics
Its Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* Lens delivers razor sharp images with true-to-life colour reproduction. The advanced T* anti-reflective coating minimises flare and ghosting, resulting in higher contrast photos and video with increased clarity in all lighting conditions.
30x Telephoto Zoom Lens
The wide-angle telephoto range equips you with a 30x optical zoom that delivers a 35mm equivalent 24-720mm. This amazing versatility enables you to shoot a broad range of photographic scenarios from sweeping landscapes, to portraits, to up-close action of your favourite sports stars or music performers.
Manual Control Ring
For more advanced users a control ring around the lens barrel enables a more DSLR-style shooting experience. The ring can be assigned various functions such as manual focus, exposure and step zoom.
5-Axis Active Image Stabilisation
Equipped with an Active SteadyShot 5-axis Image Stabilisation system ensures blurry images are minimised, and the full potential of the zoom can be used with confidence. The stabiliser also improves low-light shooting, allowing you to take more natural looking shots even when lighting conditions are poor. The active stabilisation works while shooting video as well, delivering silky smooth motion, even while walking.
Full HD Video Recording
Behind the lens sits a 1/2.3” 18.2 megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor and a powerful BIONZ X image processor. They work in conjunction to produce vivid, detail rich images and razor sharp Full High Definition video.
XAVC S 50Mbps Support
Support1 for the 50Mbps XAVC S movie format ensures professional grade results and superior quality retention when editing or applying filters and special effects to your video footage. Full HD recording in MP4 and AVCHD is also supported for seamless integration and easy web sharing.
180° LCD Tilt Screen
The 3-inch 180° tilt-able LCD screen is great for selfies and low-angle shooting. The innovative design allows you to easily compose the perfect self-portrait, delivering better results while eliminating trial-and-error. Its bright 921k-dot high-resolution screen provides a pleasurable composition and playback experience in virtually all lighting conditions.
Retractable Electronic Viewfinder
A high quality, retractable OLED Tru-Finder can be utilised for a more precise shooting experience. Its 638k-dot resolution is combined with an aspherical lens within the viewfinder to reduce aberrations and improve sharpness and accuracy for critical focus applications. A built-in eye sensor ensures fast convenient switching between the LCD and viewfinder.
