Sony DSCHX90 Digital Compact High Zoom Travel Camera with 180 Degrees Tiltable LCD Screen and View Finder (18.2 MP, 30 x Optical Zoom, Wi-Fi, NFC) - Black.
From the Manufacturer
Upgrade your view
Take a better look at all you aim for, with a small digital camera including a 30x optical zoom lens developed by Sony along with the legendary Zeiss, a clear retractable OLED Tru-Finder.
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 clear: this 24-720 mm 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 appealing 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 precision in real time.
OLED Tru-Finder improves the view
The high-contrast OLED Tru-Finder is far brighter than more conventional electronic viewfinders; 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. No NFC? No problem. You can also pair the devices manually.
More flexible movie formats
The new XAVC S 3 format captures movies detailing extra-smooth action and high-quality sound with fidelity to the original sources. Whether you’re shooting in XAVC S or high-definition AVCHD format, you can also simultaneously record another version of the same scene in a compressed, web-friendly MP4 format for convenient sharing.
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.

I bought the DSCHX90 to fulfil that role and to be honest was not expecting much. Having owned a Canon SX50HS/SX60HS and Sony's own DSCH400 'superzoom', I'd been left disappointed with a number of things - bulk, price, build and of course image quality. The DSCHX90 intrigued me though, its front dimensions are not that bigger than a credit card and research seem to suggest that the little guy punched well above it weight.
Boy are those reviews right, this is a mini marvel from Sony. Oddly over-shadowed by the multi-headline grabbing features of Sony's bigger lines, I've generally found the images and features of this camera to be outstanding. It does everything my smartphone camera can't and is a perfect solution for situations where I don't necessarily want to be waving my iPhone around.
It won't ever replace the quality of my RX100M4 of course, but I would have no hesitation in grabbing it for situations where a single / small camera is the best choice. Highly recommended as a versatile / companion device.
I have long waited for the features I desire to be contained in one camera:
I wanted Lightness (a spinal condition forces this need).
A tilting screen (For the same reason).
High quality images.
Good Macro images.
Good speed and accuracy in focusing.
At last a combination that works for me - the Sony HX90 has arrived!
Ok the quality is not the same as the HX10 but it's very, very, close. In fact it's only at the full magnification in lowish light that IQ suffers.
The HX60 was a great camera and would have been fine if it had not lacked the tiltable screen.
I was an early purchaser and it's the first time I've bought a camera "on spec" without poring over reviews for days!
So far, so good - in fact very good! I've uploaded some JPEGs straight from the camera and have not enhanced them in any way.
Well done Sony.
The new Zeiss lens assembly on the HX90v produces sharp images with only a little softness at the edges, and the default processing in intelligent automatic mode (the green camera) generates well exposed, vibrant images without needing to make any changes. If you're likely to put the camera in automatic and head off on holiday you'll be very happy with the results, especially in good light. As light levels fall there's only so much a small-sensor camera like this can do to avoid noisy images - Noise is controlled well up to around ISO 800 but beyond that your images will ideally only be used for online sharing and small prints without cropping. A built-in solution to the 'too much noise' issue is multi-frame noise reduction where the camera merges a number of shots to 'even it out'. It's also good to see you can choose between two levels of noise reduction for high ISO images, but ultimately if your travels feature lots of dimly-lit locations it might be worth looking at a large sensor compact camera such as the Sony RX100 series. You'll notice there are two automatic modes on the HX90v's mode dial - Think of the 'green camera' mode as being best for everyday picture taking and the 'orange camera' mode as being best when lighting conditions are challenging such as shooting high contrast scenes, and you won't go too far wrong!
Sony's cameras always produce pleasing video clips and the HX90v is no exception. You'll be very happy with video memories recorded on this camera.Read more ›
The Sony HX90 is the smallest camera with a 30X zoom and it is tiny, almost as small as the little Canon that lives in my pocket for general and emergency use. (I have a mobile phone. I upset the man in the phone shop when I asked for a phone with nothing else on it).
The Sony is brilliant. The screen on the back tilts which is a feature that I use quite often. IT even tilts 180 degrees which will deliight the narcissistic "selfie" crowd.
The really great feature is the EVF. THis little popup view finder is bright and clear and much better to use than the screen under any circumstances and of course especially in bright sunlight.
The pop up flash unit does not impress me, It is on a sort of gatefold mechanism which is spring loaded. IT looks extremely vunerable to a knock. At least it does not pop up automatically, you get a notice in the view finder to pop it up.
The claim is that the camera has a 30X zoom but it also has a 2X digital zoom giving 60X power, Now THAT is real zoom power and it works really well. I had not realised this and was startled to see the result one my standart test shot of the nearest electricity pole and looking down the road to a distant house.
The zoom is operated by a tiny lever on the top of the camera but you can also use the ring round the lens which can be programmed to control one of a choice of functions.
Well so far, so good all positive up until now. In fact I have found nothing negative with the camera but I really do like a decent manual, especially with something that has so many functions and programs.Read more ›
