Here are some Sony rumors from Japan: new DSC-HX95/DSC-HX99 compact camera to be announced this week


A quick update on my post from yesterday about the lack of Sony rumors - Nokishita now reports that Sony will announce a new DSC-HX95 / DSC-HX99 compact camera on Sunday. The new model should be a replacement for the current Sony HX90 (pictured above). Here are the basic specs:

  • ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T * 24-720 mm zoom lens
  • BIONZ X processor with front-end LSI
  • 4K video
  • RAW compatible
  • Tilt liquid crystal which can be taken by turning 180 degrees
  • Improved grip
  • Newly support "touch focus" and "touch shutter" (DSC-HX99)
  • Overseas release date: September 2018
  • DSC-HX95: 499 euros
  • DSC-HX99: 519 euros

The translated press release can be found at SonyAddict.

There is still no information or reliable rumors on any of the other expected Sony cameras and lenses (a7s III, a6700, 200-600mm or 24mm f/1.4).
