Sony DSC-HX99 Review! Perfect Travel Camera?

So I normally travel with my heavy Sony A77 DSLR and Olympus TG3 Tough camera. I love both of them, but I wanted to lighter zoom travel camera for vlogging and light packing. I saw the Sony HX99 and thought it had all the right specs, so I bought one online (
I ) and made this review.

  • PROS:
  • Zoom (Zeiss glass 24mm to 720mm optical, with additional 2x digital zoom,
  • light weight ,
  • electronic viewfinder for photographing in the sun,
  • USB charging (so I can use my cell phone charger)
  • super compact
  • Touch screen
  • Face tracking
  • fast autofocus
  • Under $450
  • Compact Digital 18.2 MP
  • 4K Video
  • Tiltable LCD
  • CONS:
  • Image quality is not as good as expected (probably due to the small sensor)
  • Higher ISO gets fuzzy
  • Accidental Touch screen focus.
  • Complex setup and menu system
  • Sony Camera App to Smartphone didn’t work for me for my Samsung S8 🙁

Overall is it worth it? If you want to travel with just a smart phone and need a small ultra zoom camera with a lot of great features to take a photo or video to post to your favorite social media platform, this may be the one. Light compact and full of utility. Don’t expect to zoom into your photos for lots of detail, because of the small sensor size its kinda muddy.
