Sony DSC-HX90V Compact Camera - Black
The Sony HX90V
Introducing the worldâ€™s small and lightest compact digital camera featuring a 30x zoom, as well as an OLED viewfinder and a 180 degree tilt able 3â€ LCD screen, ideal for the selfie fanatic out there.
The new compact body features a Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T 30x optical zoom lens which occupies 30% less space within the camera than previous models allowing a noticeable downsizing of the body.
The Zeiss T coating also helps reduce reflections, ghosting and flare on the lens surface itself resulting in a clearer cleaner shot.
Familiar to that of the RX100 MkIII, the HX90 features a pop-up Electronic viewfinder, again helping with the diminutive dimensions that the HX90 is blessed with. The EVF pops up from the body allowing the majority of the back of the camera to be given over to the screen.
An aspherical lens in the viewfinder and 638k dots provide an experience nearly indiscernible from that of a live viewfinder. An eye sensor switches automatically between the EVF and the screen when the viewfinder is drawn towards the eye. Power control for the EVF is taken care of by simply pushing the EVF back into the body to switch it off.
Movie making features are improved with a 5-axis image stabilization system, as well as the choice to record in XAVC S3, or AVCHD format, you can even bracket MP4 format filming to create web compressed MP4 files for easy sharing.
Speaking of sharing, NFC and Wi-Fi capability allow you to simply and quickly transfer photos and movies from your camera to other mobile devices, such as phones, printers tablets and PCs.
As with previous Sony releases, the Sony Playmemories Apps allow a wide range of useful features, including portrait features, smart remote control and sync to Smartphone.
Built-in GPS geotags your photos and movies, so when viewing them later, you can see trail maps of the shootimg locations using Sony PlayMemories Home software on a computer.
A serious player in the mid-higher end compact market, the HX90 offers an impressive array of features without sacrificing portability.
180 degree tilt able screen
30x zoom lens with ZEISS quality built in
The result of over a century and a half of ZEISS expertise in high-precision optics is perfectly clear: this 24-720mm lens renders portrait, close-up, and landscape images in natural glory from every perspective, with vivid sharpness and contrast intact. ZEISS T* multi-layer anti-reflective coating effectively eliminates surface ghosting and flare.
Exmor R™ CMOS sensor for extra sensitivity
The more light is allowed to strike a sensor, the more brilliant a resulting image will look. So the Exmor R CMOS sensor with 18.2 effective megapixels employs back-illuminated design to let four times more light in than a more conventional sensor, is twice as sensitive to light, and even features Sony Column A/D Conversion technology to reduce image noise.
BIONZ X™ for more detail and less noise
To transform data from the Exmor R CMOS sensor into high-resolution images, the BIONZ X image processor integrates detail reproduction, diffraction-reducing and area-specific noise reduction technologies. This combination makes it possible to reproduce realistic images of truer colours and textures with exceptional precision in real time.
OLED Tru-Finder™ improves the view
The high-contrast OLED Tru-Finder is far brighter than more conventional electronic viewfinders; now features even more compact dimensions; displays real-time preview and various shooting information, so that what you see onscreen is exactly what you'll get in your shot; and is retractable for portability, safety and practicality.
180-degree tiltable LCD monitor for easy framing
The high-resolution LCD on the camera back can be tilted up to 180 degrees. So when you're in front of the camera, you can easily view the LCD to check the framing before you shoot a selfie, for example. This flexibility also lets you comfortably maintain stress-free posture while monitoring a scene that you want to shoot from a low angle.
One-touch remote and one-touch sharing
One-touch remote lets you use your smartphone or tablet as a viewfinder and remote control for a digital camera, and one-touch sharing lets you transfer your photos and videos from your camera. Either way, by installing PlayMemories Mobile app to your NFC enable Android smartphone or tablet, you can avoid complex set-up sequences and establish wireless connection simply by touching your device to the camera. You are now ready to control your camera from your smartphone to take a photo from a previously out-of-reach spot, or simply be in your own group shot, as well as transfer them instantly to your smartphone for sharing on SNS. No NFC? No problem. You can also pair the devices manually.
More flexible movie formats
In addition to high definition AVCHD format, the camera can capture movies detailing extra-smooth action and high-quality sound with great fidelity to the original sources with XAVC S format.
GPS charts your course
The built-in GPS geotags photos and movies, so you can track your trip's shooting locations precisely. Later, to relive the fun that's been captured in the footage, use Sony PlayMemories Home software to recall journeys, wherever on Earth you shot them on camera. With Map View mode, the path and images of a journey appear on a trail map.
Control ring and grip take hold
For fuller-scale operability, you can assign frequently used manual focus, step zoom, quick zoom and other functions to the control ring around the circumference of the lens in front, then access and use those functions instantly as needed when shooting. Moreover, the camera grip has been ergonomically designed for optimal handling stability at all times.
Intelligent Active Mode keeps blur away
Have no fear of handheld movie shooting. Intelligent Active Mode, featuring Sony's advanced frame-analysis technology and 5-axis image stabilisation, compensates for camera shake. This mode reduces the blurriness that tends to occur in images when shooting handheld or shooting while chasing a subject in action.
P/A/S/M modes for exposure as you like it
Put your creative intentions in motion with Programmed AE (P)/Aperture priority (A)/Shutter-speed priority (S)/Manual (M) exposure modes. These modes provide you with all the flexibility that you need to manually control exposure and adjust background blur in order to capture the image that you're looking for.
Customisable settings for personal command
Assign frequently used functions (Focus mode, White Balance, Picture Effect, etc.) to customisable buttons and keys for easier, quicker access to such functions while shooting. For example, you can assign 12 functions to the Function button, then press it, choose a function, and adjust function parameters via the control ring or rear control wheel.
Extra-speedy & precise Fast Intelligent AF
An improved spatial object detection algorithm realises a more optimal and accurate lens drive to make AF even faster, for capturing more fleeting moments with ease.
Digital level gauge for even framing
The camera's digital level gauge uses easy-to-read graphics to indicate clearly whether the camera is level and enables fine adjustment of horizontal alignment during shooting. It's useful for avoiding the occurrence of camera roll, to help ensure that your shots look steady and well-framed.
PlayMemories Camera Apps add personality
Enhance your creative expression with PlayMemories Camera Apps, offering a growing range of enjoyable applications that are easy to download. Not only do these apps give you greater functionality — they are the ultimate means of personalising your camera to fulfill your photographic aims. Note: Services availability depends on region.
