The new Sony HX90 — it's absolutely brilliant from every perspective.
The Elements of Comprehensive Image Quality
The synergy of a higher-performance CMOS image sensor, lightning-quick image processor and legendary lens pack the latest optical and engineering advancements into an amazingly compact form.
Renowned ZEISS optics
Legendary ZEISS® quality delivers brilliant sharpness, rich contrast and minimal distortion.
Exmor R CMOS sensor
A back-illuminated Exmor R® CMOS sensor with 18.2 effective megapixels takes in more light for greater detail in every shot.
BIONZ X image processing engine
Now reproducing more realistic detail and color in images with less diffraction and noise.
Command With Confidence
Instantly take control of any function that you want. All aspects of operation and handling are intuitively manageable, making it as easy as possible for you to love using this camera.
Get the best view
This high-contrast retractable OLED Tru-Finder is far brighter than conventional electronic viewfinders and perfect for all-around portability, safety, and practicality.
Extra-speedy & precise Fast Intelligent AF
An improved spatial object detection algorithm realizes a more optimal and accurate lens drive to make AF even faster, for capturing more fleeting moments with ease.
Set the Right Shooting Style in Motion
Gain more choices to shoot your movie just right, according to the situation and how you want to show it. Whether you just want to share some action quickly or save it at higher resolution for more careful editing later, you can shoot in your own style to suit your purpose. Simply make format, mode, exposure and other settings and start recording as you like.
Enjoy movies in versatile formats
Choose XAVC S3 or AVCHD format for high-resolution movie recording. You can even simultaneously record the action as a compressed, Web-friendly MP4 file for easy sharing.
Keep the Blurs Away
Intelligent Active Mode with 5-axis4 image stabilisation and advanced frame analysis compensates for camera shake during movie recording to minimise blur that often results from handheld shooting.
Choose among P/A/S/M (Programmed AE/Aperture priority/Shutter-speed priority/Manual) modes to control exposure and adjust background blur in movies as well as still photos
Capability Beyond Convention
Show the world how much further you can go even after you've taken your shot. Touch up photos, share footage wirelessly, map your journey and have more fun in fresher ways than ever with your camera.
Trace your trip in detail
Built-in GPS geotags your photos and movies, so when viewing them later, you can see trail maps of the shooting locations using Sony PlayMemories Home software on a computer.
Share with ease - Gain remote control
Wi-Fi connectivity with iOS and Android smartphones for remote camera control and still/video sharing is easy. In addition to Wi-Fi support for connecting to smartphones, NFC technology (near field communication) provides "One-touch connection" to compatible Android smartphones and tablets. Users need only touch devices to connect; no complex set-up is required.
